'Krrish 2 is being worked upon'
Arijit Sengupta asks: Hi Hrithik, how are you doing? First of all wish you all the best for Kites. I am not a big bollywood fan but i really liked two of your movies where you were superb....Fiza and Jodha Akbar. Is there any possibility for Krissh 2. Please try to make the movie much more darker and cynical. It will be much more interesting. Again best of luck for Kites.....its going to break all records....Thanks.
Hrithik answers: Hi Arijit. Thank you. Will take your advice. Hope you like Kites. Sending you lots of love.
ujjwal tarun asks: Sir, do you think your role in Kites is the most difficult one in your career?
Hrithik answers: Hi Ujjwal. It was definitely one of the most challenging ones. Was about letting go, being in the moment and enjoying the true flight of an actor.
Navaneetha Varier asks: Hi Hrithk.....I'm your fan since the time I was four. You look fabulous in Krrish and I still watch it when ever possible. How are you? Please say hello to me.
Hrithik answers: Hello Navaneetha. Thanks a ton. Sending you all my love.
Dawn Lang asks: Hi! Dawn again from Victoria, Canada! Remember the lighthouse where you shot the song sequence? So fun to think that you were in my home town and I didn't even know anything about Hindi films then....please come again! :)
Hrithik answers: Yes, Dawn. Of course I remember. Spent some of my best days there. Sending you lots of love.
shilpi asks: Hi, This is shilpi and I just want to say best of luck for kites and please let us know if you are planning to make Krrish part 2 as my son is waiting for this movie.
Hrithik answers: Yes, Shilpi. Krrish 2 is being worked upon. Will not disappoint your son :) A big hug to him.
'Barbara and Kangna helped me evolve into a better actor'
Divya asks: Hi Hrithik! You seem to be sharing a very good on screen chemistry with Barbara. We would like to share your views on Barbara and Kites.
Hrithik answers: Hi Divya. I consider myself very fortunate to have worked with actresses like Barbara Mori and Kangna. Both are extremely spontaneous and come from the same school of thought. They helped me evolve into a better actor. Lots of love to you.
Sharia Greenwood asks: Hi Hrithik. I am an American who has recently gotten addicted to Bollywood movies and fallen in love with the Indian culture along the way. Every movie I watch you in is better than the last! I think you are a fantastic actor. You jump off the screen and make your characters seem like real people. Sometimes when speaking on the phone, I can "hear" the person on the other end smile at me because they project their happiness through the phone. Your acting is like that. Your feelings can be seen in your eyes, pure and un-jaded. That is what so many Hollywood actors are missing today. I hope you never lose that. I look forward to seeing you in many more movies no matter if they are Bollywood or Hollywood!
Hrithik answers: Thank you Sharia. I believe what you create is only a reflection of what lies inside you. Thank you so much for motivating me. Sending you lots of love.
vivek jaiswal asks: Hello Sir! Wishing great success for your forthcoming film Kites my question is do you think being Hrithik Roshan has helped you in changing someone's life or helping someone.
Hrithik answers: Hi Vivek. It's always nice to know if my work inspires people and helps them manifest their dreams. I believe nothing is impossible. There is more to the world than what meets the eye. Sending you lots of love.
sparsha asks: hello Mr Roshan... I'm a big big big fan of yours... well I like your dedication towards your films... I want to ask you, wat are your hobbies? and do you have enough time to enjoy your hobbies? Please send me your self autographed pic. :(:(:( plz sir.Thanks
Hrithik answers: Hi Sparsha. I enjoy reading, music, physical sports, working out and acting, of course.

Dawn Lang asks: What according to you is the noblest thing we can do as human beings?
Hrithik answers: Hi Dawn. Always give the benefit of doubt. Do not go on hearsay. Forgive quickly. And spread love, no matter what.
dhanasekar dhanasekar asks: Hi Hrithik. This is Dhana from Dubai. Your dance style is very super. Who is your dance master.

Arushi khapekar asks: Hi Hrithik, I like your dance very much. And I hope that your father will be making the 3rd part of Krrish. Really I like your both movies. Can you please tell me your next coming movie after Kites. Another thing is that please remove your moustache. I am not liking this. You look very nice in your original face and I hope that you will give my answer.
Hrithik answers: Hi Arushi. Well, the moustache is off and the third part of Krrish am sure will take shape soon. A big hug to you.

farihan ahmed asks: Hi Angel of earth Hrithik Roshan. I'm an Egyption girl whose following you always on too many websides. I don't know why i'm unlucky with you please give me my hope, it's depending on you just to have any contact with you please don't disapoint me.

Jaya Trivedi asks: Namaste, it's me jaya. I am your fan since I saw your debut film Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai. You are great and a good dancer too. I just hav a simple question to whom or from where you have learnt dancing. It's amazing to see such a good dance according to me there is no one in Bollywood who can superceed u. I pray to God that you should achieve success in every phase of your life, All the best for your upcoming film. Good Bye.
Hrithik answers: Hi Jaya. Dance is just an expression of the celebration you feel inside. I respect a dancer who does not care about looking stupid and dances for the sheer pleasure of expression.
Sanskriti Jain asks: Hello Sir! Which do you feel was your most difficult role onscreen?
Hrithik answers: Hi Sanskriti. Inevitably, the most difficult has also been the most exciting. All the films with Koi Mil Gaya and post that have been milestones in my personal growth.
Hrithik says: It's been fun chatting with you. Time to go now. Hope you all enjoy the two and a half years of my life and soul called Kites. But before I go, want to let you know there'll be a contest on rediff.com where you'll get a chance to meet with me. Watch out for the contest which begins on May 17.
