Hrithik dodge link-up rumours with Kangana; says he is single



Mumbai: Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan today said he is still single while he dodging questions on his reported link-up with fellow star Kangana Ranaut. When asked how is he taking rumours of his growing proximity with Kangana, Hrithik said, “Oh my God….What should I say about it?” He was speaking at the launch of the new version of ‘Dheere Dheere’, the chart-busting song from “Aashiqui” in 90’s, sung by Yo Yo Honey Singh.

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, on whom the song has been picturised, 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 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.
