He shares, " "I saw the public pouncing on Hrithik (Roshan), some were pulling his shirt, some were reaching out for his hair, some were trying to hug him. I somehow reached out to him and took him out and he was just completely shocked because no one had anticipated such a reaction. He was shocked and he looked at me and said, 'Is this good or is this bad?' I said this is great." Credit: Ispice
