Now here's a BIG scoop: Hrithik Roshan has found big fans in none other than Shah Rukh Khan's kids. A special screening of Krrish, the sequel to Koi Mil Gaya, was held for the King Khan and his family, as also for Karan Johar. "I was seated right next to the kids and all I can say is that SRK's children kept clapping and cheering loudly while watching the film. They were screaming with joy all through the movie. Even Shah Rukh loved the film," Karan tells me in an exclusive conversation.
Karan can't help praising Hrithik to the skies. "If there's one actor who can carry off the role of a superhero with robes and mask with conviction, it's Hrithik. No two opinions on that. He is incredible in Krrish," Karan smiles.
Karan has just flown to Dubai from London, after the music launch of Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna there and will now unveil the music of his forthcoming biggie tomorrow [June 16] at the I.I.F.A. weekend in Dubai. "I am nervous... I've never been so nervous in my life. K.A.N.K. is a different film, a complete departure from what I've attempted so far," he reveals his thoughts.
When you tell him that he need not worry since a historic opening at the b.o. is a foregone conclusion, Karan shoots back instantly, "Yes, everyone's expecting 2006 to be a landmark year. First Fanaa, now Phir Hera Pheri and Krrish next week are only going to make the film industry prosper." Count Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna too, Karan.
