The friendship between Bollywood hunk Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif seems to have deepened, after they started shooting for their film "Bang Bang".

Hrithik has found a good friend in Katrina post his separation from wife Sussanne, The Times of India reported.

A source from the film unit said that the growing bond between the lead pair of "Bang Bang" is evident during the shoot in Manali.

When Hrithik was recovering from his separation with childhood sweetheart Sussanne, Katrina is said to have boosted his morale. Even when Katrina and Ranbir had a tiff during the New Year holidays, it was Hrithik who supported her.  

"Both are recovering from recent heartbreaks and have found an anchor in each other," TOI quoted the source. 

The source also said that when the "Krrish 3" actor was hospitalised, Katrina first met him after returning from her Ibiza trip with Ranbir.

"His injury delayed Bang Bang and Katrina's schedule was knocked for a six. But she stood by his side and accommodated all the date changes without complaining. On the contrary, she was always trying to cheer him up by calling him up or sending his text messages," the source added.

Hrithik and Katrina were shooting for the film in Shimla and from there the whole team came to Manali to shoot a song.

"In Shimla, they spent a lot of time discussing life and cinema after pack up. They were very chilled out, chatting with the hotel staff and would even pose for pictures with them. The equation is just as good in Manali where they will shoot a song in almost sub-zero temperature."
