Terrorist (Mission Kashmir), Mentally challenged man (Koi Mil Gaya), Superhero (Krrish).. Hrithik Roshan has done it all. Now for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s much-awaited Guzaarish, Hrithik apart from playing a paraplegic patient, will also be performing some magic tricks!
Says a source “Bhansali did not want Hrithik to fake the magic tricks. Nor did he want the usual ‘rabbit from the hat’ kind of tricks. The director wanted the magic scenes to look authentic, so a hunt was launched for a magician who would fit the bill. The yardstick was to find an expert who will give Guzaarish ample time and a comfort level with Hrithik.”
The search finally ended when Bhansali found an expert Ukrainian magician, who traveled all the way to India and spent time with Hrithik teaching his some of the coolest magic tricks that will be performed in the film.
“The Ukrainian magician was in Mumbai for a brief spell, to work with Hrithik. He taught the actor some of the coolest tricks, never seen in these parts. Now the star keeps his two sons entertained all the time, so much so that the elder one, Hrehaan, expects his father to be the official magician of the evening on his next birthday. If Hrithik wants an alternate career he can easily become a magician and give our PC Sorcars a run for their money”
All we got to say is, with each passing day Guzaarish is looking more interesting. Let’s hope Hrithik and Bhansali create on-screen magic, late this year!
