Since the music video came out, everyone's been drooling over a suited-booted Hrithik Roshan, a millionaire wooing a small-time party planner in the Aashiqui single, Dheere dheere se meri zindagi mein aana. Ahmed Khan, the choreographer-director admits that the 41-year-old actor who plays a multi-millionaire had to really sweat it out in three-piece suits, in the scorching heat of Antalya in Turkey. 


"It was 48 degrees and while everyone else was in tees and shorts, Hrithik had to be all suited-booted. Initially I thought he would refuse but after we discussed the concept, he told me that if I want him in a three-piece he'd wear it,"" reminisces Ahmed, adding that the actor didn't even get a chance to cool off between shots as they were shooting on the streets and the hotel was far from the location. 


"If people are liking the video, then 50 per cent of the credit goes to Hrithik, 40 per cent to Sonam and 10 per cent to me. Hrithik more because he wore those suits and didn't complain even once,"" Ahmed laughs, saying he was worried for Sonam as well since she had so many hair dos but even she didn't crib about the humidity or the beauty add-ons. ""I had a great time working with them.""

Hrithik Roshan and Sonam Kapoor recently launched a remake of the song Dheere Dheere Se from Ashiqui, which completed 25 years. The song, which is an ode to Gulshan Kumar, was shot on the streets of Turkey.

A source from the sets reveals, “On the last day of shoot in Turkey, Hrithik started grooving to the track of Dheere Dheere Se and some local dancers too joined him. That’s when he spotted some very amazing dancers. The choreography team along with some local dancers who were a part of the shoot showed some unseen dance forms. Both Hrithik and Sonam were in awe, so much that they even gave them a standing ovation, before joining them to celebrate the completion of the shoot.”

Hrithik even insisted that their talent be captured on camera, for a fun behind-the-scenes video. “He too joined in the fun, and amazed the locals with his moves, off camera,” the source added.

Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor was initially scared to work with fellow star Hrithik Roshan, but felt amazed by his "humility" and "cool" demeanour.

Sonam and Hrithik have recreated the popular track 'Dheere Dheere' from the 1990 block-buster 'Aashiqui' directed by Mahesh Bhatt.

The new version of the song, sung by Yo Yo Honey Singh, was released today.

"It's amazing working with him (Hrithik). It's a preconceived notion that you get really scared to work with someone who is like this huge mega star. And I think the only other mega star I have worked with is Salman Khan," Sonam told reporters here.

She said she found the relaxed and casual demeanour of Hrithik amazing.

"The amazing thing about him (Hrithik) is that he is very relaxed and causal and what I like about him is that he treats people around him nicely," she said.

The Ranjahnna actress liked Hrithik's humility and approach towards people.

"There are lot of people who are not kind to others because they think they are bigger than everybody else but he is very normal and humble.

"There is a lot of humility and he is also open to everything and everybody. It's a very unusual quality in a person who has seen so much success in life...That's pretty incredible and that really makes a person grow," she said.

Sonam found Hrithik charming and was quite okay romancing him on screen.

"He is a hot guy, so it's nice when a good looking, charming, funny, nice guy is romancing you even if it is on screen. It feels good and it was fun," the actress said.

Sonam had great time working with Hrithik and she is open to work with the actor again.

"I would love to work with him in future. I really liked the song and I wanted to do it. My family had a really long association with T-Series and so it was amazing. I think it's a very cool song," she added.

Hrithik Roshan, who was in Turkey to shoot for the Aashiqui song Dheere Dheere Se, was spotted riding a bicyle there. Says a source, “The entire team was shooting on different locations in Turkey for the song. But in one particular shot, Hrithik had to ride a small bicycle. He loved it so much that post the shot, he cycled around the venue of the shoot.” Though the cycle was really small for Hrithik’s size, Duggu took bicycle strolls on the Turkey streets, “He even made a few stops on his way to interact with the locals there and took pictures with his fans,” our source added. The song from Aashiqui is a tribute to Gulshan Kumar who had produced the film and will be launched on digital platforms today. The new version is sung by Honey Singh and choreographed by Ahmed Khan..
