Rediff Logo Chat with Hrithik Roshan (Jan 17, 2000)

'Hardwork, sincerity, humility, patience!'

Hrithik Roshan One word sums up Hrithik Roshan's chat -- hysteria, in capitals at that! The large crowd waiting for the young star in the Rediff chat room went beserk even before Hrithik could say hello.

Hrithik on his part was down to earth, extermely loveable and so taken in by the chat that he promises to come again. It was, unfortunately, a promise he could not keep. A few days later, his father, director Rakesh Roshan was shot at by two gun-toting youngsters outside their office. Though he has recovered from the attack, he is presently under medical supervision after undergoing heart surgery for blocked arteries.

Man, I feel well out of place, you all seem to be just girls drooling after him. I just wanna ask him about Mission Kashmir, that's it so noone get any wrong ideas about me!!

Majahid: Stop feeling awkward, man! I need both the sexes to survive :-) Mission Kashmir is due in August and it stars Sanjay Dutt, Priety Zinta, so look out for it.


malaika (Mon Jan 17 19100 7:58 IST)
Tell me one thing, if u know U have a goal but U do know that U might not be capable of reaching it , would U still go for it, risking all that U ever had?


Hrithik Roshan (Mon Jan 17 19100 8:44 IST)
Malaika: I just did! So go for it. If I can do it, anyone can! The way to do it -- hardwork, sincerity, humility and patience!


yasmin (Mon Jan 17 19100 8:3 IST)
Hii Hritik: I wanted to congratulate you on the success of your first movie "Kaho na Pyar hai." Although I am not your fan as yet,(Anil Kapoor is my favourite ) I must admit you did very well. Not many newcomers get a break like this on their first release. Well done! keep it up! I am sure your Dad is very proud of you and vice versa. The hard work of both of you and many others(I am sure) paid off. Just one advise - please don't let the success go to your head as it has done to many eg shahrukh, kajol etc. Please try and make your fans happy as much as you can because its them that have brought you where you ae right now and of course your hard work and God's blessings. Once again congratulations. Looking forward to your next release. Please let me know what are your next releases.


Hrithik Roshan Hrithik Roshan (Mon Jan 17 19100 8:46 IST)
Yasmin: Firstly, thanks. And don't worry, as long as I have people like you reminding me not to lose my head, I'm pretty sure I won't! My next release is gonna be Mission Kashmir.


majahid (Mon Jan 17 19100 8:38 IST)
Hi Hrithik, I just wanna aks 1 question, can you tell me your role in Mission Kashmir. Is Sanjay Dutt playing your father!! Thanks


Hrithik Roshan (Mon Jan 17 19100 8:47 IST)
Majahid: Yes, he is playing my foster-father.

Shenaz (Mon Jan 17 19100 8:55 IST)
Keep up the body building, don’t slump forward, work-out your BLTs (Back, Legs and Triceps) your triceps more because they enhance your biceps and in no time you too will have Sallu’s twin abs Eribbed and rippled. And this dedication to fitness will win you more fans (or at least less who will boo. It happens you know). Total body, total confidence!


Hrithik Roshan Hrithik Roshan (Mon Jan 17 19100 8:57 IST)
Shenaz: Thanks for the advice. I'll do just that.

HRITHIK SUCKS (Mon Jan 17 19100 9:12 IST)
Only for Shah Rukh and his fans because HRITHIK IS GOING TO BE BIGGER THAN AMITABH BACHAN AND RAJ KAPOOR COMBINED. No arguments from you Hrithik, we are counting on you to blow us away. THANKS TO YOUR DAD FOR KNPH - brilliant performances from both you and amisha. RAJ RULES, rohit was good too.


Hrithik Roshan (Mon Jan 17 19100 9:15 IST)
Hrithik Sucks: Thanks for the vote of confidence, I'll try and do my best. By the way, I think you need to rethink your nickname >;-|%

I dearly have great respect for you and your father. I pray for your success! I hope you reach the stars, and shine the most in the film industry! I greatly loved your outstanding performance, and I will watch your movie again for the 4th time. I wish you all the luck! You will always be in my prayers. I wish you a happy life with whomever you marry! I'd like to know if you plan to work in a movie directed by Dear Mr. Rakesh Roshan again? And may you PLEASE tell me your e-mail address? Thanks you, I gr


Hrithik Roshan Hrithik Roshan (Mon Jan 17 19100 9:17 IST)

Hrithik Roshan (Mon Jan 17 19100 9:20 IST)
TrueFriend: This might sound a little weird but my favourite was Sir Prabhu, we used to really trip out on him.


tanya (Mon Jan 17 19100 9:13 IST)
it just takes 2 seconds to reply


Hrithik Roshan (Mon Jan 17 19100 9:18 IST)
Hi Tanya *looking at my watch* that took me 4 seconds!


Shaz (Mon Jan 17 19100 9:6 IST)
Out here in LA, going by the audience’s reaction it seemed that they were enjoying the movie during the first half. But after the interval, YOU COMPLETELY TOOK OVER. The bike scene at your re-entry got so many OOOOO’s, AAAAA’s, and WOW’s from the audience. Ek Pal Ka Jeena and Dil Ne Dil Ko Pukaara is the highlight as far as your dancing abilities go; and when you say "Are we ready?"(or something like that - before dancing to KNPH title song on stage), I was ready to jump out of my seat and start dancing but controlled my self. Also, the theatre was ¾ full, which quite unusual for a film with newcomers (Mostly people for 3 Khans and Anil Kapoor).


Hrithik Roshan (Mon Jan 17 19100 9:22 IST)
Shaz: Thanks a lot for the feedback. I'll try and do better in my forthcoming films. But if I don't, please do give me another chance. Coz' all directors I'm working with may not be as great as dad was with me.


Naomi (Mon Jan 17 19100 9:20 IST)
Hi! Hrithik, I am big Salman fan and making his website(Please say hello to Salman), But some of my internet friends keep telling me how good you are. I will watch your movie. Please come to Japan to promote your movie some time!


Hrithik Roshan (Mon Jan 17 19100 9:25 IST)
Naomi: Please take their advice. I hope I don't let you down. Japan is a place I really wanna see, so if you promise to show me around, I'll be there soon


gamma filmi (Mon Jan 17 19100 9:20 IST)
HEy Duggu you are late!


Hrithik Roshan (Mon Jan 17 19100 9:27 IST)
gamma filmi: Duggu??? What is that? And, by the way, I got late because of your brother, Anurag! *lol*


Hrithik Roshan (Mon Jan 17 19100 9:30 IST)
All right guys I'm sorry I'm having to leave so early but I'll be back on the 21st, so take care, be good and stay happy. And if you get the time, watch Kaho Naa...Pyaar Hai just one more time for my sake! :-) Bye
