Hrithik Roshan’s mom is now wellMarch 4th, 2009 - 6:18 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, March 4 (IANS) Hrithik Roshan could not attend the Filmfare award function as there was a bit of a health scare at his residence. The superstar’s mom fell ill on the evening when he was awarded best actor for “Jodhaa Akbar”.
“She’s well now. Everything will be fine in time,” Hrithik said Wednesday.
Hrithik also regrets missing out the award evening Saturday. “It (’Jodhaa Akbar’) was a special film on many counts. It was my first historical and costume drama and I’m unlikely to do another of this for a long time. ‘Jodhaa Akbar’ was a radical departure from anything I’ve done so far. And I couldn’t have asked for a better culmination after two years of gruelling hard work.”
Hrithik’s father Rakesh Roshan said: “We were all getting ready for the Filmfare awards, looking forward to Hrithik bringing home another trophy when my wife complained of uneasiness. We couldn’t take a risk as she had a heart scare earlier.”
However, Pinky Roshan didn’t have to be rushed to a hospital. “It never came to that,” Rakesh said.
“We called the doctor home and Pinky’s condition was under control after medication. Anything could’ve happened. That’s is why we decided to regretfully cancel our evening at the Filmfare awards. But I’m sure there will be many more occasions for Hrithik to get awards.”
