Last week Rakesh Roshan announced that he would like to rope in Hrithik Roshan and Shah Rukh Khan for a two hero project. Roshan Sr in an interview to a leading daily insisted that while Raees and Kaabil clash has created tension between SRK and the Roshans there’s no bad blood as such. Hrithik too in an EXCLUSIVE chat with BollywoodLife when asked about the big box office clash had called it “destiny” and did not hesitate calling Shah Rukh a “friend”. While fans have drawn the battle lines, we quizzed Roshan Jr if he would be game for a Karan Arjun sequel with the Raees hero? Hrithik’s response would definitely bowl you.
Here’s our conversation with the Kaabil hero…
Your father said he would want to revisit Karan Arjun and he would want to cast Shah Rukh Khan and you together. What are your thoughts?
I would have to read the script.
If it is a Rakesh Roshan film it is a comfort zone for you, would that be a reason you’d like to pick this?
No the comfort zone comes only when my dad and I both have liked the script. If he has liked something and I have not and I have liked something and he has not then there is no comfort there.
Watch Hrithik’s reaction in the video below…
Looks like Hrithik keeps his personal and professional life separate. Like Hrithik, Rakesh Roshan too had spoken highly about SRK and said, “I am really close to his entire family. I remember shooting for Krazzy 4 (2008) in which Hrithik was supposed to do a special number. But he had to back out at the last moment due to a knee injury. When I discussed the problem with Shah Rukh Khan, He immediately agreed to do the song. Hrithik will also star in my movies. If ever I work on a two-hero film like Karan Arjun where both male actors have equal roles, I will approach Shah Rukh.”
The last time we saw Hrithik and Shah Rukh act together in film was way back in 2001. The duo had come together for Karan Johar’s Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. While they did feature in many movies after that like Om Shanti Om, Luck By Chance, I See You and Don 2, none of these films had the two actors really share screen space. If Roshan Sr indeed does manage to make Karan Arjun 2 and cast the two stars it was not be short of a casting coup.
