Rakesh Roshan refutes rumour of tiff with Shah Rukh Khan
Reports flooding the media that Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan is extremely upset with Rakesh and Hrithik Roshan don't bother the father-son duo. They say their relationship is above rumours.
"We know what the truth is. In fact, I met Shah Rukh at an awards function the other day. We both laughed over these reports. Maybe a section of the media thinks it knows better. But Shah Rukh, Hrithik and I are above these attempts to create a rift between us," Rakesh Roshan told IANS.
Rakesh, who teamed with Shah Rukh in Karan Arjun and Koyla, roped in the superstar for an item song for his home production Krazzy 4, directed by Jaideep Sen.
Apparently the filmmaker promised the superstar that Hrithik's version of the song would be used as a part of the end credits of the film and not to promote the film. But now both the songs are being used to promote the film and rumour has it that Shah Rukh is upset.
"The fact of the matter is it was Hrithik's idea to approach Shah Rukh for the dance number. Why would he suddenly feel threatened by Shah Rukh?" asks Rakesh Roshan.
A source very close to the Roshans said: "From the very start when Shah Rukh was roped in to do one version of the Krazzy 4 song, Hrithik had gone on record to state that Shah Rukh's version of the number would be used as a part of the film.
"Hrithik, who at that time couldn't perform the item song because of a bad knee, had explained the situation to Shah Rukh. He had also stated clearly that whenever Hrithik was able to perform after his knee injury, his version of the item song would be used for promotional purposes.
"And rightly so...the song is composed by his uncle and is part of Hrithik's home production. It's his sister Sunayana's first attempt at being producer and Hrithik is very proud of her and the film. So why should Shah Rukh be miffed with the Roshans?"
