When Hrithik asked cigarette from Shahrukh
Shahrukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan smoking together, sharing a funny moment and it is not a scene from any new film. This real life scene was seen recently at the birthday party of director- producer Karan Johar. Karan was turning 42 on 25th May and held a birthday dash on 24th May evening. As expected, top names of the Bollywood industry came down to wish Karan and have a good time. Apart from Shahrukh and Hrithik, Aamir Khan also attended with wife Kiran Rao who is a close friend of Karan. Other notable faces at the party were Kangana Ranaut, Sonam Kapoor, Vidya Balan and Alia Bhatt.
During the party, at a point of time Hritihik felt the need to have a smoke but then realized that he does not have his pack of cigarettes with him. Soon he spotted Shahrukh who is known to be a chain smoker, in a corner. He approached Shahrukh who was already having a smoke and asked for a cigarette. What followed was an interesting exchange between the two stars. While handing over a cigarette Shahrukh said to Hrithik, "Yeh acting wali cigarette hai (This is acting enhancing cigarette). After smoking this you will learn how to do this." and showed his famous wide arm gesture. Hrithik was momentarily taken aback but replied in a similar witty manner. He said "Now that you have lent me a cigarette, you will be able to do this too" and showed his famous dance move from his super hit song 'Ek pal ka jeena'. After that Hrithik moved away with the burning cigarette to let SRK be. The two stars are not known to be especially close and have worked in only one film together, ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ which was co-incidentally directed by Karan Johar. But it was a feel good moment to see the two stars having a little friendly exchange.
Shahrukh reportedly kept a low profile at the party. He and his wife were among the closest friends of Karan but recently there have been reports of a ‘rift’ between the two. Apparently Karan’s growing friendship with the two other Khans, Aamir and Salman is not liked by Shahrukh who did not even appear at Karan’s show ‘Koffee With Karan’ this season. Hrithik on the other hand is trying to get over his divorce from childhood sweetheart, Sussanne. He is spending time with his sons and other family members to get through this shock.
