Hrithik comes clean on
Besides being a talented actor and one of the best looking men in the film
industry, Hrithik Roshan seems to be good at predicting the future, too. Not
only did Hrithik win the best actor award at IIFA, his film Jodhaa Akbar
dominated the awards function as well, winning 10 awards. Incidentally, Hrithik
had predicted the same two hours before the awards ceremony.
“I was born on the tenth day of the month. The floor on which I am putting up
 adds up to 10, my room number  also adds up to 10. I am going to be
very lucky this evening,” Hrithik predicted. And that’s exactly what happened!
Sitting in his suite at the Venetian, it’s hard not to quiz Hrithik about his

As the conversation goes on, wife Sussanne enters, carrying shopping bags in

As he settles back in his chair to continue the interview, we ask him about
the rumours regarding him and Barbara Mori. “My grandfather used to say, ‘If you
will let yourself be disturbed by people, that means they have managed to win
over you’. I believe in this. I know the truth and so does my wife. Beyond that,
no third person matters to us,” he says.
But why did he walk the red carpet with Barbara and not Sussanne at Cannes?
“Cannes was a platform to publicise the film [Kites]. Anything that can
represent the film in the best way should be done at such a forum. Barbara and I
did the same. It was purely a professional decision taken by my dad.”
And has the controversy changed him in any way? “Despite my long career, I’ve
never been dragged into controversies. I am a peaceful guy. I don’t confront
people and I don’t like arguments. I am not a star and I don’t understand
stardom. I am happy the way I am,” he says.
