Hrithik, the magician

MUMBAI: In Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Guzaarish, Hrithik Roshan will feature as a magician for a sequence.

Sources shared that Bhansali did not want Roshan to fake the magic. Nor did he want the usual rabbit-from-the-hat kind of tricks. And to make his act look authentic, the filmmaker said to have appointed a real magician all the way from Ukraine!

The Ukrainian magician had been in Mumbai for a brief spell, to work with the actor. He taught the actor some of the coolest tricks, never seen in these parts. The magician will return next month for the rest of the shoot. It is heard that the magic parts have been scheduled for the final stage of the shooting. Incidentally, this new trade seems to have made Roshan’s sons very happy. These days Hrehaan and Hridhaan often enjoy magic of their papa dearest at home. Besides, Hrehaan even expects his father to be the official magician of the evening on his next birthday.
