Reports flooding the electronic media that Shah Rukh Khan is extremely upset with the Roshans refuse to upset the Roshans.
Laughs Rakesh Roshan, "We know what the truth is. In fact, I met Shah Rukh at an awards function the other day. We both laughed over these reports. Maybe a section of the media thinks it knows better. But Shah Rukh, Hrithik and I are above these attempts to create a rift between us. The fact of the matter is, it was Hrithik's idea to approach Shah Rukh for the dance number. Why would he suddenly feel threatened by Shah Rukh?"
Rakesh Roshan will say no more on this subject. But a source very close to the Roshans adds, "From the very start when Shah Rukh was roped in to do one version of the Krazzy 4 song, Hrithik had gone on- record to state that Shah Rukh's version of the number will be used as a part of the film. Hrithik who at that time couldn't perform the item song because of a bad knee had explained the situation to Shah Rukh. He had also stated clearly that whenever Hrithik is able to perform after his knee injury, his version of the item song will be used for promotional purposes. And rightly so…the song is composed by his uncle and is part of Hrithik's home production. It's his sister Sunayana's first attempt at a producer and Hrithik is very proud of her and the film. So why should Shah Rukh be miffed with the Roshans?"
The fact that Shah Rukh doesn't have the time or the inclination to correct the blatantly mischievous perception on the two-tiered item song only adds to the confusion.
