As reported by us earlier, actor Sanjay Dutt admits that he is working out with actor Hrithik Roshan these days, and has renewed ties from the time they last did a film together in Mission Kashmir.
“It’s such a pleasure to work out with Hrithik,” says Sanjay, who has taken to the gym with a vengeance. He says that he has been giving a lot of strenuous exercises for Hrithik to follow and was amazed to see the younger actor perform it effortlessly. “We’ve been sharing exercising tips with each other. I was quite surprised to see how effortlesslyhe took to some of the workouts that I suggested, and they were not easy ones. He is quite a sincere and fast learner. He is as passionate about his workouts as he is about his acting,” says Sanjay, who’s been working out with Hrithik for about a month now.
Since Hrithik has worked on Dutt’s workout tips, would Dutt do the same by shaking a leg with the nimble feet dancer. “I am not going to dance with him. I am no match for him. I feel he is the best dancer among all the leading actors that we have today and I am not going to dance with him at all!” laughs Dutt.
The actor says that he is so fond of Hrithik’s dancing that he kept aside his work and caught up with the dance reality show that Hrithik as hosting. “Watching him emerge out of a water fountain (in his show) was absolutely mesmerizing. He is the perfect choice for a dance reality show. I have been a fan of his dancing right from the time I saw him in the song 'Ek Pal Ka Jeena' (film Kaho Naa Pyar Hai). I remember seeing him as a kid when I used to meet (filmmaker) Rakesh Roshan, but we didn’t interact then. It was only when we did the film Mission Kashmir (where Hrithik played Sanju’s son) that we bonded a lot on the sets,” he adds.
As an actor, the one thing about Hrithik that impressed Sanjay the most was that he did not flinch one bit in doing retakes over retakes on the sets of the film that they are currently shooting together. “There were so many retakes and he was giving as many re-takes as needed and that to with equal amount of gusto and energy. Well, it’s good to see him, and may be we can all learn a thing or two from him as an actor and a performer,” he ends.
