We know that Hrithik Roshan and his wife Susanne recently went for a vacation to Bora Bora. But what nobody knows is what they did on their holiday. Hrithik gave us some exciting details of the vacation. It was a holiday that Hrithik won’t forget in a hurry. The actor who is an avid nature lover wanted to try swimming with the sharks. Revealing the details Hrithik said, “The best thing was that we swam mid-ocean with the sharks. They were in the waters some distance away from Bora Bora where we were holidaying. It was the most memorable experience of our life. I can’t wait to tell you what we went through.” And Hrithik and Susanne swam with the sharks not once but twice for reasons that were more based on emotions than pleasure. “Susanne and I were taken mid-ocean which is infested with sharks. And then we were asked to jump in. At first I was somewhat hesitant and you can’t blame me for that. Swimming with the sharks is all very well as a concept but this was for real. Even though our guide assured us that these sharks don’t attack human beings since they are fed enough meat every day, it was still a daunting task. And we required no scuba diving equipment, just a swimming costume and snorkel,” said Hrithik. What convinced Hrithik to take the plunge was his wife’s excitement. “She was eager to get into the ocean immediately. Being a man, I couldn’t hesitate after that. And boy, am I glad we jumped in. It was the most awesome experience. There were sharks and stingrays. Some were as large as six feet… terrifying creatures of the deep, eating out of our hands, touching our bodies and moving away. We’ve never been closer to nature,” said Hrithik. But that wasn’t the end of an exhilarating experience. Hrithik and Susanne were hungry for more since they wanted to click pictures. “We went back the next day because we forgot to click pictures. Our son Hrehaan loves sharks. How could we go back home without pictures of all those sharks in the water? So we once again went swimming with sharks just for our son,” said Hrithik.
