AIRPORT COMMOTION: Rakesh Roshan and Hrithik Roshan caused a minor commotion at Goa airport.


Mumbai: Rakesh Roshan and Hrithik Roshan caused a minor commotion at Goa airport on Thursday evening.


The Roshan family flew into make an appearance for the screening of their film Krrish at the ongoing International Film Festival of India (IFFI).


Roshan senior was glad to receive an award for his contribution to Hindi cinema: "It's a very happy moment, we have contributed a lot. I have been in the industry for years. It's a good feeling."


And with the successful opening of Dhoom 2, Roshan junior had more reason to cheer. "This is the first time that I am in town for the release of a film. Specially since it is successful, it feels really good to be here to enjoy it," Hrithik said.


And it turned out to be one big family event on stage as the Roshans walked in to receive the honour. "I still feel that I've just begun," an ecstatic Rakesh Roshan said.



But son Hrithik couldn't have been more proud when quizzed about the his new-found 'super-hero' status and was quick to pass on the credit to his dad.

"It is not surprising that I ended up being like on super-hero, cause I was actually raised by one," he said.



Having earned over 60 crores at the box-office Krrish is one of the biggest grossers of 2006. And with a festival screening to end the year, it sure is a little more the Roshans could have asked for.

The entire Roshan clan made an appearance in Goa yesterday before Rakesh Roshan’s film Krrish was screened for the IFFI. Hrithik Roshan along with parents Rakesh and Pinky and wife Suzanne were called up on stage to talk a bit about the movie before it was shown on the big screen.


Amidst a cheering full house, Hrithik Roshan was presented with a memento by the organizers. “The only reason why I’m a super hero onscreen is because of my father who is the real super-hero”, said he.


Alongside the Roshan family on stage was politician Narayan Pratap Rane who joked about how he was Rakesh Roshan’s senior as the former started out in politics two years before the latter’s entry into films.


Addressing to the crowd Rakesh Roshan said,” The journey has been long and fruitful. With your support it will be even more interesting in the future.” Krrish which created waves at the box-office was highly appreciated by the audiences and critics all over and is one of 2006’s top-grossers.
