// // // A lot has been written about the off screen chemistry between Hrithik Roshan and his Kites co-star Barbara Mori – which they’ve chosen to deny – but the playful camaraderie they shared on the sets is something even the film’s director Anurag Basu vouches for.
“It was fun on the sets,” says Anurag, recounting a humorous incident. “We were doing an intense scene which had a long dialogue. Towards the end, Barbara was supposed to slap Hrithik. We okayed the scene. But Barbara asked me if it was possible to do a retake, because she wanted to slap Hrithik again. It was a prank, but I decided to play along. Duggu was very surprised when I told him we’d do the scene again because I’d already told him the earlier take was fine.”
Basu kept trying to convince Hrithik, but the actor had smelt a rat. “So when we shot again, just as Barbara was about to slap him, Duggu ducked and slapped her instead. Barbara was shocked. Then she realised that Hrithik had seen through her prank and everyone on the sets burst out laughing.”
