At the launch of Dheere Dheere, the actor was asked how is he taking rumours of his growing proximity with Kangana.
To this, Hrithik replied, “Oh my God….What should I say about it?” Hrithik and Sussanne Khan’s divorce took place a year ago.
He was speaking at the launch of the new version of Dheere Dheere, the chartbuster from the ’90s hit Aashiqui, sung by Yo Yo Honey Singh and picturised on the Bang Bang star and Sonam Kapoor.
When asked whom he wanted to dedicate this song, the actor said, “As of now, there is no one in my life to whom I can dedicate this song to. We all are dedicating this song to his (T-Series head Bhushan Kumar’s) father.”
Hrithik and Sonam Kapoor showed great chemistry in the new version, video of which has been directed by Ahmed Khan. The Dhoom 2 star thinks this song is the celebration of love.
“When he (Bhushan Kumar) came to me I was touched as he said he wanted to do this song as a tribute to his father (late Gulshan Kumar),” Hrithik said.
“I had the entire album of the film (Aashiqui) since it was the rage at that time and I remember Dheere Dheere was one of my favourite songs at that point of time… It kind of became a phase in my life,” he said.
Hrithik is amazed with the way Bhushan and his late father made a name for themselves in the film industry.
“Gulshanji was the son of owner of a juice stall. He used to sell juice and then he went on to become a music baron. I think very few will be able to achieve that. It is an inspiring journey and then Bhushan took it to great heights. We had great time doing the song. The song is hot… Sonam is hot,” he added.
Hrithik and Sonam have worked together in an ad film and this time they have come together for this song.
“It is second time that I am working with Sonam. We had great time… it was joyful experience. Sonam has a 100-watt smile,” he said.
The Krrish 3 actor admires spontaneity and energy of Sonam. “I admire the fact that she is very comfortable in front of camera. She is very spontaneous, she is energetic. Apart from that, being an actress she is very aware of world around her. She is intelligent and very knowledgeable,” Hrithik said.
Regarding rumours of a sequel to his film Bang Bang with Siddharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandes, the actor said, “I don’t know why they did not take me… Ask them.”
