It must be nice to be in Hrithik Roshan’s shoes today. The Bollywood hunk turns 35, a birthday wife Sussanne brought in with a big rock-n-roll party last night to which was invited all of Hrithik’s film industry friends. A special guest at the celebration was his Kites co-star Barbara Mori and her family. “They are here to experience Indian hospitality,” he said. 


He is looking great, feeling good, the old knee problem is an injury of the past. Hrithik is now dancing in his forthcoming films with great energy and enthusiasm. Talking of dancing, he is pleased about a much-talked-about number he performed for Zoya Akhtar’s Luck By Chance. “I’ve done western dance numbers in all my recent films. I needed a chance to dance in our desi folk style. I got that chance in Luck By Chance,” Hrithik said, sharing his look in the film written and directed by Zoya, which is presented by Excel Entertainment and Big Pictures and produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar. “Look out for Farhan, he’s a great actor as well,” Hrithik said. 


Farhan’s lead actress in Luck By Chance is Konkona Sen Sharma. Hrithik himself has a glorified special appearance of 20 minutes in the film but is said to have put in an outstanding performance in the number Baawre. For Kites, he did a very international dance number with a New York choreographer that is underground-meets-hip-hop-meets-Californian-bad boy kind of rhythm. “I still remember struggling to get Farah Khan’s steps right in my first film Kaho Na...Pyar Hai. The last time we worked together was in Krissh,” Hrithik recalled. 


What wish does he have for himself this birthday? “That Sussanne is with me all my life. I have everything else. I don’t need any other gift except lots of love from everyone. A warm hug means more to me than anything money can buy.”
