Hrithik Roshan just cannot say ‘no’ to his family. So when his grandparents — mom Pinky Roshan’s parents, J Om Prakash and his wife — requested him to attend the 25-year celebration of the Shiva temple for Maha Shivratri today, at his Panvel farmhouse, Hrithik could not refuse.

Says a source, “Every year Hrithik, along with his wife Sussanne, sister Sunaina (with her daughter), parents Rakesh and Pinky Roshan and his grandparents, visit this Shiv Mandir at Apta in Raigad district to pray for Maha Shivratri. Hrithik has been visiting the temple every year for the last 12 years except last year (he was shooting for Krrish 3). He performs the puja there and also feeds people from the area.

The temple was built by his grandfather J Om Prakash and the family also own the farmhouse in Panvel where the temple has been built.” This year too it looked as if Hrithik would have to skip the event as he was shooting for Siddharth Anand’s Bang Bang with Katria Kaif. That was when his grandfather made a special request. “Since it’s the 25th year of the Shiva temple,he had organised some special events for it with the villagers there who were looking forward to Hrithik’s presence. Hrithik couldn’t turn down such an appeal from his grandfather so he requested the producers to shift the schedule slightly. Last night Hrithik drove down to Panvel with his entire family. He will celebrate it today and drive back to Mumbai on Monday morning to fulfil his work commitments,” the source adds.
