Hrithik Roshan discovered one thing about the gorgeous Aishwarya Rai during the shooting of Dhoom 2 – the sequel of Dhoom .
Hrithik told a newspaper recently that he was shocked to see the kind of intelligence that Ash puts in her character. “I was quite shocked to see the kind of intelligence she lends to her characters.”
“It was quite a task matching up to the world’s most beautiful face,” Hrithik added.
Hrithik is often described as a perfectionist but for ‘Dhoom 2’, he said that he had “loosened up this time and was quite chilled out.”
But while filming the action thriller, which also stars Abhishek Bachchan , Bipasha Basu and Uday Chopra , “slowly and steadily, Ash made me aware of the fact that I was having a bit too much fun with the role and should start taking it more seriously.”
In ‘Dhoom 2’, Hrithik and Ash are for the first time doing roles with shades of gray in their careers.
But Hrithik plans to go one up on Ash when they begin shooting next month for a period romance Jodha Akbar – a 16th century love story to be directed by Ashutosh Gowarikar .
“This time in ‘Jodha Akbar’ I will make sure that I take my character very seriously, and turn the tables on her so that she will be inspired by me, just as I was by her in ‘Dhoom2′,” Hrithik said.
‘Dhoom2′ is scheduled to release on November 24, 2006.
