Mumbai, Jun 20 : Sanjay Dutt says he is petrified of matching dance steps with the nimble footed Hrithik Roshan with whom he shares screen space in ‘Agneepath'.
The two stars were seen as father and son in ‘Mission Kashmir', few years ago and in this remake of Amitabh starer film by the same name, Sanjay will be seen as villain.
Dutt says he is working out with Hrithik these days. “It is a pleasure to work out with Hrithik,” says Dutt, who has taken to the gym with a vengeance.
He says that he has been giving a lot of strenuous exercises for Hrithik to follow and was amazed to see the younger actor perform it effortlessly.
“We have been sharing exercising tips with each other. I was quite surprised to see how effortlessly he took to some of the workouts that I suggested, and they were not easy ones. He is quite a sincere and fast learner. He is as passionate about his workouts as he is about his acting,” Sanjay said talking to reporters.
When asked if he would shake a leg with Hrithik, Sanjay said, “I am not going to dance with him. I am no match for him. I feel he is the best dancer among all the leading actors that we have today.”
“I have been a fan of his dancing right from the time I saw him in the song ‘Ek Pal Ka Jeena' from his debut movie ‘Kaho Naa Pyar Hai'. I remember seeing him as a kid when I used to meet his father Rakesh Roshan, but we did not interact then. It was only when we did the film ‘Mission Kashmir' that we bonded a lot on the sets,” he said.
As an actor, the one thing about Hrithik that impressed Sanjay the most was that he did not flinch one bit in doing retakes. “There were so many retakes and he was giving as many re-takes as needed and that to with equal amount of gusto and energy,”he recalled. PTI
