Actor Hrithik Roshan, who was in Switzerland, shooting for ‘Krrish 3’, rushed to Mumbai on hearing the news of Yash Chopra’s sudden demise, to be with his close friend Uday Chopra.
Tells a source, “He has cancelled shooting for four-five days to be with Uday. He took the first available flight out of Zurich to be in Mumbai by evening.”
The actor is said to be very close to the Chopra siblings, Aditya and Uday.
Fact: Not many know that the title ‘Darr’ had been borrowed by the Chopras from Hrithik. Back then, Hrithik had made an amateur film by the same name.
Back to Switzerland, a source has been quoted as saying to a daily, “It’s quite uncanny that Oct 21 was supposed to be Yash Chopra’s last day at a film shoot (he was to be part of a special song for Jab Tak Hai Jaan). But since he passed away sadly, the Swiss government organised a special event in a train named after Yashji.”
Adds the source, “Hrithik and his entire family along with the ‘Krrish 3’ crew lit candles in front of the train.”
It is also heard that the actor cancelled his mother birthday celebrations. “The plan was to celebrate Pinkyji’s birthday in Switzerland with a small private party. In fact, the entire family including Hrithik’s wife Sussanne and sister Sunaina were in Switzerland for the party,” says an insider.
