In Bollywood, he is known to be a family man. But Hrithik Roshan, along with his family, gave Loving Your Family a new twist by inviting Krrish 3 co-star Vivek Oberoi’s wife Priyanka Alva Oberoi for the mahurat shot of Rakesh Roshan’s new movie.
“Hrithik and his family, in a sweet gesture, invited Priyanka on the first day of the shoot because Vivek was a part of the mahurat sequence. Of course, Priyanka was happy and went for the shoot along with her hubby,” says a unit member of the Krrish 3.
Since Rakesh Roshan returns to direction after a gap of six years (his last directorial venture was Krrish in 2006), his entire family, including wife Pinky and daughter-in-law Sussanne, were present at the mahurat shot. Hrithik, who didn’t have to can any scene that day, also came in for the first-day shoot.
“At the mahurat, Hrithik bonded well with Priyanka. Both of them were chatting and laughing animatedly. She was also mixing well with Pinkyji and Rakeshji. They all looked like a happy unit,” says the unit member from the movie.
When contacted, Vivek says, “It’s great to be a part of the film and Rakesh uncle’s vision. Duggu is a dear friend and shooting with him will be a lot of fun.”
Apparently, Hrithik has been very keen to participate in all the creative decisions along with his father. Once the first schedule of Krrish 3 with Vivek, Kangna Ranaut and Priyanka Chopra is through, Hrithik is expected to join the cast.
The Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara actor, who has been suffering from back problems, is on his way to recovery currently.
Meanwhile, Hrithik’s cousin Eshaan — son of music composer Rajesh Roshan — has joined the, Krrish 3 unit as an assistant director. Eshaan apparently wants to get into direction and is not very keen on an acting career like Hrithik.
