Guzaarish has brought out the musician in Sanjay Leela Bhansali, and if we go by Hrithik Roshan’s words, the director is an excellent dancer too! “He completely shocked me,” said Hrithik, “He’s a fantastic dancer and an even more unbelievable music director. I thought he was good in taking out tunes (for his movies), but he turned out to be a good music director too!” But if you thought you would get to see Bhansali shake a leg on screen, you’re mistaken.
If the director was good at dancing, then Hrithik wasn’t too far behind in his vocal skills either. The actor has sung a song for his film alongside Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. “It took me 3 days to get the tune right for the song, but the kind of direction I got from him was incredible. He sang the song for me once but I couldn’t get it right.” Finally Hrithik went to the recording studio, switched of the lights, told the recordist to hit the record button and leave the room. He then sang the song thrice out of which Sanjay Leela Bhansali chose one. Talk about perfection!
But surely Hrithik Roshan has prior experience in singing. After all, he did sing in his previous film Kites in which he starred with Barbara Mori. “The forced me to sing that one!” he says sheepishly.
As long as he doesn’t warble an English song a la ‘Kites’, we’re not complaining…
