Actor Hrithik Roshan was headed to London to inaugurate his Madame Tussaud's statue and just after boarding the flight he got a call and started begging and pleading to take the call. So, what was the urgency?
Well, apparently Duggu got a call from one of his family members telling him that Shammi Kapoor wanted to speak to him. And that was it, the Krrish star got desperate to get on the phone with the original Prince.
“Hrithik had just boarded the flight and he pleaded and requested the cabin crew to allow him to speak on the phone. Shammi Kapoor called him and spoke to him," a source told Mumbai Mirror.
Considering that Hrithik is known to be a huge fan of the 'Junglee' actor and has grown up dancing to Kapoor's songs, even imitating his dancing style, the drama was but natural.
"I requested the air hostess, was hoping she would allow me but unfortunately she didn’t know me. But being a hardcore Shammi Kapoor fan, I did as hardcore fans should and took the call. And it was all worth it," Hrithik told the tabloid.
So, why had Shammi Kapoor called Hrithik up out of the blue? Apparently, the veteran actor had just watched Hrithik's film Guzaarish and was full of praise for the grey-eyed-boy.
“Yes, I did speak to him. As a matter of fact he was taking off and was on a flight when I called him. I had seen Guzaarish and I thought that he was brilliant and we must encourage the boy. So I called him,” Kapoor told the tabloid.
"It’s the first time I received a compliment from him. Made my day!,” Hrithik gloated.
