It was an emotional moment for actor Hrithik Roshan, as he witnessed a screening of his debut movie Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai in New York and talked about his decade-long Bollywood journey leading to super stardom.
The 36-year-old, who is on a promotional tour for his upcoming international love story Kites in the US, was in New York to present a special screening of his launch vehicle at the BIG Cinemas Manhattan in Midtown East to an audience of competition winners.
Hrithik shared with the audiences the anecdotes from his early days as an actor and his overnight rise to stardom after Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai in 2000. He also introduced Kites where he has teamed up with Mexican actress Barbara Mori.
