Pure non­sense: Hrithik re­acts to re­ports of tiff with Salman

Al­though I’ve been out of the coun­try, I’ve been on the phone with Salman about Sul­tan ever since we met in Madrid for an awards func­tion HRITHIK ROSHAN, AC­TOR

The Hrithik Roshan -Salman Khan tiff has been in news ever since the two re­port­edly shared cold vibes at an In­ter­na­tional awards show in Madrid. Ap­par­ently, Hrithik needed a fe­male dancer for his per­for­mance at the awards show, and Salman sug­gested his friend, ac­tor Daisy Shah’s name. Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, Hrithik turned down the of­fer and this in­censed Salman to no end. “Is this what is be­ing writ­ten while I was away? It’s pure non­sense. Salman and I are in touch con­stantly,” says the ac­tor, who was on hol­i­day with his sons and re­turned to Mum­bai last week.

In fact, the first thing on his

to-do list of pend­ing as­sign­ments back home is to watch Salman’s new block­buster at a screen­ing spe­cially ar­ranged by Salman for him. “I can’t wait to see the film. Al­though I’ve been out of the coun­try, I’ve been on the phone with Salman about Sul­tan ever since we met in Madrid for an awards func­tion. I missed the screen­ing that he had for his friends be­fore re­lease. But he promised me my own screen­ing the minute I return to In­dia,” says Hrithik.

Hrithik and Salman go back a long way. Hrithik was an as­sis­tant on the sets of his fa­ther, Rakesh Roshan’s di­rec­to­rial, Karan Ar­jun (1995) that starred Salman. When Hrithik de­cided to be­come an ac­tor, Salman per­son­ally trained him to get phys­i­cally fit and clicked Hrithik’s pictures, which he cir­cu­lated among his film­maker-friends.
