Bollywood Podcast: Hrithik Roshan
Tuesday 25 May 2010
The H is silent, so says the man himself. I don't believe him. Hrithik is a genuine Bollywood superstar and became an overnight sensation with his debut Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai (Say This Isn't Love?) showcasing a beautiful pair of green eyes and the most ripped body of the decade.
It's flippin' great to have him back as it's been over two years since his last blockbuster, Jodhaa Akbar, and his latest release, Kites, follows My Name Is Khan in Bollywood's attempt to penetrate the mainstream.
Kites co-stars Mexican honey, Barbara Mori and Bollywood's own wonder, Kangana Ranaut. The hindi version is released on 21st May and there is also a 'mainstream' version called Kites: The Remix which follows a week later. It's been edited by Brett Ratner (Rush Hour Trilogy. X-Men 3) and cuts out the songs, is half an hour shorter and adds some nudity... ooh er!
Click below to hear my interview with the fabulous and charming Hrithik as we talk about his absence, his super fit body and of course his new film, Kites.
