Hrithik Roshan: Ever the Professional

An Urban Asian Exclusive!

Hrithik Roshan is a busy man these days. The actor is filming for not only Karan Johar’s Agneepath remake but also getting ready for his television debut. The superstar will be soon seen on the small screen as a judge on an upcoming dance reality show, Just Dance, on Star Plus. In fact the actor, despite having a muscle tear in his chest area, shot for 17 hours continuously to complete the promos of the show.

Roshan reported for shooting on Monday at 9 am, and wrapped at 2 am on Tuesday morning at a studio located in Malad. His schedule included rehearsals and the actual promo shoot. The actor, despite experiencing pain, continued to shoot after having to resort to painkillers and also getting a shot to relieve the pain temporarily.

“He was extremely co-operative. He didn’t want the teams from SOL Productions, the company producing the show, and Star Plus to reschedule the shoot because it would have meant a lot of monetary and other damages,” tells a source from the sets adding, “He didn’t let us cancel the shoot though we offered to do that because we were really concerned about his health.”

And for all those Hrithik fans the wait isn’t very far when you will get to see the superstar turn on his magic on the sets of Just Dance. The promo of Just Dance is expected to break in a few days. The show is scheduled to go on air later this year. It will feature dancing talent from all over the world.

It was also rumored the channel was so keen to have Roshan that they have apparently offered a fee of Rs 2 crore an episode. If industry speculation is anything to go by, the show, which is expected to run into 56 episodes, will fetch Roshan anything between Rs 90 and 112 crore, turning him into one of the highest paid Bollywood exports on TV.

Are you excited to watch the next season of this awesome show with the Sexy Hrithik Roshan!
