Hrithik Roshan, who was voted world's sexiest asian man last year, has always been in the limelight for some or the other reason. The Bollywood heartthrob has gone through several ups and downs in his personal life but has excelled in his professional life. There is no dearth of controversies surrounding him.
Here are the top five controversies of Hrithik Roshan:.
Closeness with Barbara Mori
Roshan scion's closeness with his "Kites" co-star Barbara Mori was visible to everybody during the movie release. The rumours of them in an affair was hyped to such an extent that Mori was blamed for Roshan's split with wife Sussanne. Also, it was said that Sussanne left home after she got to know about the rumoured link-up. Indeed, father Rakesh Roshan was not happy with certain steamy scenes of his son and Mori in the film that he edited them out. It is said that he had even forbid Hrithik to work with her again.
Divorce with Sussanne
Everybody was shocked when the 'perfect world' of Hrithik Roshan and his wife Sussanne Khan lasting 11 years, came crumbling down. People made various assumptions, but none was confirmed. While some blamed Sussanne's proximity with Arjun Rampal or Roshan's closeness to Barbara, others named Hrithik's mother Pinky Roshan as the reason behind the divorce.
Salman Khan commented on "Guzaarish"
After the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Guzzarish" featuring Hrithik and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan that didn't do well at the box office, Salman Khan's comment triggered fire. He had said, "koi kutta bhi nahin gaya", which means it wasn't even watched by dogs.
This made Roshan junior furious and he slammed Salman Khan, saying: "It's not heroic to laugh or make fun of a filmmaker just because his BO collections are not up there with yours. 'Guzaarish' is a super success in its own way."
Lip-lock with Aishwarya Rai Bachhcan
A steaming lip-lock scene in "Dhoom 2" between Hrithik and Aishwarya Rai created controversy. The scene didn't go well with the Bachchan family as the former Miss World was about to tie knots with Abhishek Bachchan then.
Increasing intimacy with Kareena Kapoor Khan
Initially, Hrithik was supposed to debut in films with Kareena Kapoor with the film "Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai". But, unfortunately, Bebo walked out the film and the offer went to Amisha Patel. Though later, Roshan and Bebo did several movies together including "Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham", "Yaadein", "Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon", "Mujhse Dosti Karoge".
Both were rumoured to have a link-up at that time. But wife Sussanne Khan came in between and slammed the rumours. It is said that Hrithik promised his wife that he will never work with Kareena Kapoor again.
