Shah Rukh Khan is currently shooting for an item song for Rakesh Roshan's Krazzy 4 and Hrithik Roshan, who will feature in another version of the same number, says this proves that there is solidarity in Bollywood.
"While I'm doing this for my home production, Shah Rukh is going out of his way for us. It just shows how much solidarity actually exists in the industry," Hrithik said.
"Shah Rukh's version of the track will be a part of the film, my version will be used only for promotional purposes," Hrithik told IANS.
Hrithik, whose period romance Jodhaa Akbar is set to release Feb 15, cannot stop waxing about King Khan's gesture.
"Shah Rukh, whose association with my dad's banner goes back a long way to 'King Uncle' and Koyla, is being the portrait of graciousness," the Jodhaa-Akbar star said.
"In mid-February, when my knee is fully healed and I get back to doing what I am best - action and dancing - I'll be performing the same item song as Shah Rukh (is doing) for my dad's production," he said.
But why the double delight? Won't the fact that Shah Rukh and Hrithik are dancing to the same tune invite unnecessary comparisons between the two?
But Hrithik is sure such comparisons can be avoided.
"Though we are dancing to the same song composed by my uncle (Rajesh Roshan) and to the same choreographer Ahmed Khan's instructions, we'll bring our own body language and style into it. Besides, Shah Rukh doesn't need to dance. I do."
Sounding upbeat about his career's first item song, Hrithik said: "It's composed by my uncle and sung by Vishal (of Vishal-Shekhar). And it's the best dance track I've ever heard. I'm sure both Shah Rukh and I are going to have huge fun performing this item song."
Shah Rukh had earlier performed an item song for Karan Johar's Kaal with Malaika Arora Khan.
