Hrithik Roshan to turn writer?
In his career, Hrithik Roshan has played many roles — superhero, terrorist and even a Mughal emperor — but all on screen. The star may soon be putting on one more hat, that of a writer. Of late, he has been penning poems. He has even posted two of them on his Facebook page in the last week itself, around the same time that he underwent brain surgery. And now, we have come to know that a number of his Bollywood friends have requested him to come out with “an inspirational book”.
“Hrithik is giving it (writing a book) a thought considering he isn’t working these days (he is on a four-week break after the surgery). But nothing is finalised yet,” says an insider close to the actor. It’s believed that a publishing house has also shown interest in bringing out Hrithik’s book.
“Right now, he really isn’t thinking about it since it he would need to put a lot of effort into it. He is too busy with his films (Krrish 3 is his next release, followed by Bang Bang) to take on such a project right away. But he is surely thrilled about the idea,” says the insider.
We have heard that Karan Johar has also praised Hrithik for his poetry-writing skills. “In fact, a number of his family members and friends have been asking him to put his thoughts on paper as well. But he hasn’t taken a call yet,” adds the insider.
Despite repeated attempts, Hrithik couldn’t be reached for a comment.
