Think Hrithik Roshan and you think twinkle toes. It started with Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai, where he burst into the scene to introduce a kind of fluid dancing that we hadn’t seen in a long time, and never ended.

Audiences could never have enough of his dancing. But now they may have to do without the delights of Hrithik’s dancing in some films to come. He is looking at scripts that will not require him to display his superb dancing skills.

The actor first got his knee surgery done at Bangkok soon after completing Jodhaa Akbar. But both the pain and the stiffness persisted. A week ago, he went to Los Angeles to get a second surgery done. (It’s another matter that most people thought he was in LA for the pre-production work of Anurag Basu’s Kites.)

Now, the surgery is over, the swelling is gone too, more or less. But it seems he will not be able to do his usual naacha gana with ease now, without harming the operated-on knee. And no, he has no dancing scenes in Kites.

He is reading plenty of other scripts too. But, besides looking at the meat of his role, his main criterion is, ‘No dancing, please’.

Oh Hrithik, you and dancing are synonym to each other. What will we do if you won’t want to dance?!

Hrithik Roshan gets to back to work on July 15 when he will fly to New Mexico to shoot for Kites. Kangana Ranaut and Mexican actress Barbara Moris are his co-stars in the film, directed by Anurag Basu.Says a source, “His second son Hridhaan was born on June 1 so he wanted to spend time with his family due to which he skipped all award functions that were held abroad and refused work that kept him away from home for long periods of time but now he is ready to work.”On the shooting schedule, the source reveals, “Hrithik, his father Rakesh and Anurag will fly to New Mexico in mid-July to personally oversee the building of the sets. Kites will be shot across New Mexico, Los Angeles, Arizona and Las Vegas.”

Further, Hrithik’s manager informs us, “Kites has a three-month schedule in the US and another two-month schedule in Mumbai. Hrithik is not doing anything after that.”Reports claim that the movie is inspired by Woody Allen’s drama on adultery, Match Point. Hrithik’s character is like a kite which keeps wandering but always flies high. He has a mistress and a wife portrayed by Kangana and Barbara respectively.

Is it real or is it paranoia at work? Producer dad Harry Baweja has been pretty vocal about the ‘unpleasant moves’ to trip his sci-fi movie which will be released on July 4. That Friday, too, a film produced by Aamir Khan opens, showcasing his nephew Imran.

So, what’s the big deal? Simply the fact that both the films are decisive projects for their heroes.
Harman Baweja, debuting with Love Story 2050, has maintained a politically correct silence, so far.

Now, he opens up in a conversation with Vajir Singh… There have been some embarrassing moments for you. As soon as you stepped on the dais for the music release of Love Story 2050, everyone shouted “Hrithik.. Hrithik.. Hrithik.”
(Cutting in) Not everyone but just one person. This person was not even invited for the function. He had gate crashed. It was planned and done deliberately. But all my friends told me that I behaved coolly, with dignity.

Do you mean someone is hatching a plan to sabotage your debut?
This person was thrown out of the conference. Don’t expect me to divulge his name though. I’ve asked my boys to get me his number. I want to call him and thank him. I was nervous before coming on the stage but his “Hrithik.. Hrithik,” gave me the courage to talk to the media. I’m ready for anything and everything now.

But who is playing such dirty tricks?
Someone is up to dirty tricks for sure.

Aamir Khan is launching his nephew Imran Khan with Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na on July 4, on the same day that Love Story 2050 is being released.
At the end of the day, there’s no benefit for either of the competing parties. The two films are bound to cut into each other’s business, at least from my point of view. Deep down in my heart, I feel this clash could have been avoided but it’s beyond our control.
Didn’t your father (Harman Baweja) request Aamir Khan to postpone his release date?
My father did. He talked to Aamir as well as 20- 25 producers who were toying with the idea of releasing their movies in June/July. If you ask me, if I would have wanted a solo release, I’d say yes, of course. Anyone would. See, Aamir sir is a senior actor, he’s been around for years. What can I say about his way of thinking? I’m sure he has a reason.
Recently, Aamir Khan was spotted with a T-Shirt on which July 4 was written. That’s the release date of the two films. Does all this intimidate you?
I’m not scared of anything. I’m not scared of any movie coming before mine.. after mine.. with mine.. under mine.. above mine.. next to mine. The only thing is that I wish that there had not been unhealthy competition.
Obviously its from Aamir’s team. DUH.

Now here is some news that will just make your day… the lovable and everyone’s favourite tubby Uday Chopra is set to direct… and he not going to direct any other film but the biggest of them all… action sequel Dhoom 3!
Uday hasn’t had the best of acting careers, with only the Dhoom series to his credit, but that hasn’t put him of from Bollywood. .. In fact quite the opposite. Uday has been pressuring his older brother Aditya, who has finally given in and told him that he has his permission to go and try his hand at Dhoom 3.
Original director of the first two films, Sanjay Gadhvi made it clear a long time ago that he would not work on the third. Many other directors were considered, with Aditya himself pondering to take the helms. Aditya even offered the direction seat to Shah Rukh Khan, but he politely refused. Then came along Uday Chopra, who was all up for it… and in the end he was given the go ahead.
Says a source, “Despite their best efforts, Yash Chopra and Aditya couldn’t make a star of Uday. They gave him tailor-made author-backed roles in Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai and Neal N Nikki. They bombed. And while his tapori act in Dhoom and Dhoom 2 was a hit, Uday unfortunately was not offered roles outside Yash Raj except for an occasional supari which no one wanted to chew. For the past year he has completely withdrawn from the public eye, planning his life ahead. Directing a film seemed the most logical thing to do.”
Dhoom 3 is expected to begin production late this year, but one thing is now assured, Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan will not be part of it. There is no way the two stalwarts would let a young untried director loose on themselves… Hrithik Roshan is also tied up with other commitments. So that means its back to Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra… can you wait for it?

By the looks of the latest preview of ‘Love Story 2050,’ seems like Harman is trying to take Hrithik’s spot in B-Town! With his slick dance moves alongside a bunch of robots, it’s as if we’re watching ‘Krrish’ part 2! Is Priyanka’s boy toy trying a little too hard to be like Hrithik?

Well the father, Harry Baweja dimiss all rumours : view the video here

We still are not sure, whether the lip lock is true. Hear what Hrithik says in the video.

For one, Hrithik has better hair.
Hrithik features are too sharp, Harman’s are more wholesome.
Both have piercing eyes.
Both have very distinct jawlines.
They have the same looking ears.
Hrithik has emerald eyes, Harman has brown eyes.
Many has been said and these two have been compared since forever.
Do they really look alike?

Harman Baweja is super hot, but it kills us to say that whatever he did, HRITHIK ROSHAN has already done it way back in Krish, with that slow motion dance.

Anurag Basu wants a kiss between Hrithik and Barbara Mori in Kites, Rakesh Roshan will have none of it

Rakesh Roshan and Anurag Basu are locked in a big debate these days. And it all revolves around the big question should Hrithik kiss his leading lady Barbara Mori in Kites. The romantic comedy, is to go on the floors in July.

Both Rakesh Roshan and Anurag Basu have been having meetings in the last few days to discuss the possibility of a kiss between Hrithik and Barbara.
The kiss between Hrithik and Aishwarya was one of the highlights in Dhoom 2, and with everyone looking for a ‘big gimmick’ to sell their film, Basu can’t be blamed for wanting Hrithik to pucker up again. Papa Roshan is opposed to the idea. A source on the project says, “All of Anurag’s films are real. He doesn’t shy away from portraying intimacy on screen. Most of his films (see box) have had intimate scenes and he believes the same holds true for Kites.
Rakesh Roshan isn’t too sure if Basu’s treatment will work for Kites. He isn’t too comfortable with the prospect of his son kissing another woman in his home production. The two have been arguing over the issue.” Roshan has asked him to be more subtle. “It’s not like Rakeshji is interfering, but as far as the kiss is concerned, he’s made his stance clear.” Kites is a love story of a guy and a girl who don’t understand each other’s languages.
Barbara Mori speaks Spanish while Hrithik doesn’t. Most of the scenes in the film will rely on body language and expressions between the pair, “There’s loads of romance in the film, and the chemistry between Barbara and Hrithik is sizzling. Anurag feels like it’d be a waste if they weren’t intimate.”
It looks like Anurag may end up toeing the line and give up on the idea of a liplock.
Anurag Basu and Rakesh Roshan were unavailable for comment.
