Akshay Kumar: Hey Hrithik, will you coach Aarav?


By Hindustan Times

MUMBAI, Feb. 28 -- Since 2000, when Hrithik Roshan burst onto the scene with Kaho Naa...Pyaar Hai, he instantly had fans that couldn't stop raving about his dancing skills.

Now, there's an addition to that list of admirers - Akshay Kumar. He is so impressed that he wants Hrithik as his son Aarav's dance coach.

Akshay says, "This is something I have always thought - if Hrithik ever opens a dance class, my son would be the first person to join it. I am talking to him to see if he can coach my son to dance."

Akshay is all praise for Hrithik after he saw the latter perform at a recent awards show, dancing to songs from his films, Agneepath (2012) and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011).

Prior to this, Hrithik hadn't performed on stage in a while. A source close to the actor says that Akshay will now meet Hrithik for a longer discussion on dance.

"Akshay thinks Hrithik is a perfect dancer. And that's why he should do more films," says the source.

"What he (Hrithik) brings to the dance floor is refreshing. He keeps getting better and better. He should be seen in more films and stage shows," says Akshay. Picky about what projects he works on, Hrithik hasn't done a film since Agneepath in January last year. He will be seen in the superhero film Krrish 3 towards the end of 2013.

Akshay is also eager to work with Hrithik in a film. "Of course, I'd never dance with this guy, but I'd definitely love to do an action film with him," says Akshay.
