April 13, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan and his co-actor Barbara Mori, whose chemistry has been the talk of the town for a while now, even though their film Kites is yet to release. However, Barbara wasn’t very sure of working with Hrithik and had her doubts about the actor after watching some of his videos on YouTube.
Apparently, after she had been signed on for the film by the Roshans, she looked through some of Hrithik’s videos on YouTube and was unimpressed. She discussed her uncertainties with the Roshans. On learning that his co-star on such a major project was unsure of working with him, Hrithik gave her DVDs of his films Koi Mil Gaya, Lakshya and Dhoom 2 when he met her before the shooting of Kites.
Hrithik states that Barbara had watched some of his not-so-nice videos on YouTube when his father, Rakesh Roshan told her that he would be her co-star. He made her watch the DVDs in order to prove to her that he was a good performer and also to give her an idea about Indian cinema. The DVDs also changed her opinion about him.
Hrithik asserts that it wasn’t just Barbara whose opinion changed. Everyone else who watched the DVD also had a change of opinion.
