Hrithik croons for Kites

MUMBAI: He can act well, dance well and now he has attempted to sing as well. The green-eyed star has rendered his voice for Anurag Basu’s much awaited film Kites.

In fact the director was the one who suggested Roshan to sing for an English song in the film. The actor had been initially apprehensive over the idea. But once Basu convinced him, he was a game for it. He immediately put his heart and soul to get his sur aur taal right.

Incidentally his co-actor Barbara Mori was supposed to sing along with him. However the plan didn’t work and singer Suzanne has sung the part.

The recording was done while the studio was in pitch dark! “When the actual recording was to be done, I got them to switch off all the lights in the studio because I wasn’t being able to get my best out. Only when the whole studio was blacked out, did every note fall perfectly into place,” said Roshan

He further said that the team loved his first take itself and didn’t allow him to improvise on it.
