Hrithik Roshan and Sonam Kapoor made an appearance yesterday to promote the song Dheere Dheere, their new single for Bhushan Kumar that’s a remake of the original Dheere Dheere from Aashiqui. It was a rather awkward event all round, but what was surprising was when a journalist threw out a question to Hrithik – “What do you have to say about your link-up rumours with Kangana?” There have been rumours for a while, of course, but you gotta wonder how the journo had the balls to ask that question.
Hrithik seemed pretty stumped too, because after a split second pause, he just said, “Oh my God! Mindblowing.” Sonam then interjected, saying, “He just said he was single.” (Not entirely accurate, since she said she was single when asked who in her life she’d dedicate Dheere Dheere to. Hrithik, meanwhile, just said there was no one in his life that he wanted to dedicate the song to.)
That was, of course, the end of it – Hrithik didn’t seem to want to say anymore, the PR rep in the corner intervened, and the host tried to move on to something else. Hmm!
