Is there anything Hrithik Roshan can’t do? After playing a mean thief, a desi superhero and a beautiful king, Hrithik now sings!


In his forthcoming Kites, Hrithik, who plays a salsa teacher, sings a soulful English number to woo the hot Latina Barbara Mori. It was director Anurag Basu’s idea to have Hrithik croon the love ditty. “A couple of months back, all of us were just chilling at a party when Hrithik spontaneously began singing. He was so good that it was a revelation. I told him that he must sing in Kites,” says Basu.


Initially the actor resisted, but Basu persisted. “He practiced for a month and then recorded the song,” adds Basu. Of course music is in Hrithik’s genes since his paternal grandfather was the noted music composer Roshan and his uncle, Rajesh, composes all Rakesh Roshan’s films.


While we’ll have to wait till post Diwali to hear Hrithik’s song, we did get a sneak peek of what the man is capable of. At the just concluded IIFA awards in Macau, when prodded by host Boman Irani to sing, after much deliberation and discussion with wife Susanne, Hrithik took the mic and sang the famous Amitabh Bachchan Yaarana song, Tere Jaisa Yaar Kahan. And boy, could he croon.
