Just on the heels of Barbara stating that he is a wonderful actor and a great human being, Hrithik praised her to heavens. He has acted with many top Bollywood actresses like Rani Mukherjee, Aishwarya Bachchan, Preity Zinta, Priyanka Chopra and others but he rated his Kites co-star above them. He claimed that Barbara is the best actress he has ever worked with. He added that he was bowled over by her first film, which has so much vulnerability, dignity and sex appeal in her.
Kites has been in the news ever since it was announced. It was rumoured that Hrithik's closeness to Barbara almost cost his marriage. Then the leak of their topless photos shocked many but they are still close to each other. Interestingly, Barbara is said to be very close to Hrithik's wife Suzzanne too.
Kites, produced by Rakesh Roshan and directed by Anurag Basu, is all set for release this Friday, May 21. It also features Kangana Ranaut in a special appearance.
