Hrithik Roshan looks forward to fatherhood for the second time.


Everybody knows that Hrithik Roshan and his wife Sussanne are expecting their second child in May. But he's as excited about baby No 2 as he was about first-born Hrehaan. "I don't want to say much about this. But yes, we're both excited. I thought my excitement level would be lower the second time around. But it's just as high." Would Hrithik like his second child to be a baby brother for Hrehaan? "No," says Hrithik firmly. "I want a girl this time." The Dhoom star is presently in Goa shooting for a biscuit ad to be directed by Navdeep Singh (Manorama Six Feet Under) with model Gunjan Bakshi. The actor, who is recuperating from a knee injury says, "I'm aware ads expect me to put on my dancing shoes. I can't say I've consciously avoided dancing for this one. But yes, I did feel the dancing bit in the ads was becoming tedious." 


The actor adds, "I am in Goa staring at the beach leading into a stretch of the bluest sea I've ever seen. And all I want to do is see water lapping on my feet and face. But I can't do that thanks to my knee. I've to behave myself if I want to do what I love doing the most, namely action and dance." Hrithik doesn't do much dancing in his next release Jodhaa-Akbar. And that isn't because he injured his knee during the shooting. "I didn't get injured during Jodhaa-Akbar. My knee had been suffering for a long time. I just let it be till it could take no more."
