All sorts of stories have been coming out about Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai's nuptials over the last week, but the most ridiculous one appears to be that of Hrithik Roshan dancing at the sangeet (slated for today).
But papa Roshan says, "It's not true. Hrithik is not performing at the sangeet.
He is shooting for Ashutosh Gowariker's Akbar Jodha in Karjat."
The Roshans, Hrithik, Suzanne, Pinky and Sunaina, won't be going to the wedding, as they haven't been invited. "I wouldn't like to comment on that," says Rakesh. "We are not going.
It's a closed family affair and we should respect that. When Hrithik got married, there was lot of pressure on us about who to invite and who to leave out. It's unfair to put that kind of pressure on the Bachchans now.
Let's leave them alone. Even I invited only a few people for Hrithik's wedding, so I know they must be in an awkward situation.
Let's not embarrass them by discussing this."
Later this year (August/September 2007), event management company Wizcraft had organised the One Amazing Night world tour, featuring The Bachchans, Aishwarya, Hrithik and Priyanka Chopra along with a host of top-notch stars.
Now, the tour has been postponed to 2008. While the Bachchans said they were postponing it because of AbhiAsh's wedding, it was reported that Hrithik walked out as he felt he was being marginalised.
Rakesh denies the rumours. "Hrithik's participation hadn't been finalised. This year, he didn't have dates so he couldn't confirm. Now that the dates have been postponed, we'll see how he is placed at that time next year."
