The 42-year-old actor said he and Shah Rukh, 51, are friends and know how to handle such matters. “Shah Rukh and I are friends and we both know each other well enough to make sure that there is absolutely no negativity. In fact it’s hopefully going to be the most positive experience for both of us and our fans,” Hrithik told PTI.

“Kaabil” is Hrithik and his father Rakesh Roshan are collaborating again after films like “Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai”, Hrithik’s debut film, “Koi Mil Gaya”, “Krrish” and “Krrish 3”. Hrithik, who was in the city to launch the Lightness Inspired Collection of Rado as its brand ambassador, said he and his father share a certain level of understanding.

“There is a certain level of understanding between us, which is automatic. So, it gets a lot easy. And it’s easy because we have argued ourselves and moulded that bridge between us.

“So, now the communication is really smooth. The traffic comes and goes really smooth. But, it took us a while to build that solid communication line. As it was not like this before.”
