Says a source close to Hrithik, "Ever year on this day, he calls up one person that he has hurt in the past year, intentionally or unintentionally, and says sorry. He feels that because it's his birthday, it's that one day when people will forgive him and let go of past grudges. On his birthday when he wakes up, he tries to remember if there is any person who he has hurt or misunderstood him, he sorts out things with him/her."
The friend adds, "Duggu has followed this practice of calling up that one person over the years and today it's almost like a tradition. He feels life is too short to bear grudges."
Duggu says, "I believe that the more love we give the more love we get. If my fans today can go out and call that one person, who feels bitter or hurt about them, I would be really happy. I would consider it as their gift to me."
Hrithik will have a party tonight at his home in Juhu which will be attended by Shahrukh Khan and Gauri Khan, Sanjay and Maheep Kapoor, Karan Johar, Kaajal Anand, Chunky and Bhavna Pandey, Dino Morea and Nandita Mahtani, Kunal Kapoor, Goldie and Sonali Behl and Arjun Rampal and Mehr Jesia.
