Hrithik silences mischief mongers:

A few weeks ago, a section of the press had falsely spread stories that Hrithik Roshan had a miniscule role in the much-awaited Fiza. Hardly there in the first half of the film, he appears only towards the climax of the film, the report stated. But Hrithik Roshan put an end to rumours concerning his role in the film by stating that he is there from the first frame onwards. “On the contrary, the film should’ve been titled Amaan (the character he portrays in the film),” he joked. Shedding light on his role in Fiza, Hrithik revealed that he was not playing the stereotype in the film. “That’s where the film scores,” he said, adding that working with Jaya Bachchan and Karisma Kapoor was an enjoyable experience. And what about Khalid Mohamed, who turned director with the film? How was it working with a fresher? “He is too good. Watch the film and you will agree with me,” he shot back. Click for a bigger picture Khalid Mohamed denied reports that the film was inspired by Costa Gravas’ Missing and Kamal Haasan‘s Tamil film Mahanadhi. “I saw Missing much after I started Fiza. But I have used Costa Gravas’ editing technique in the film,” he said. The Culture Company in association with UTV Motion Pictures has produced Fiza. The two companies have not decided their future strategies yet. “Everything depends on how Fiza fares at the box-office,” Sanjay Bhattacharjii, Vice President, UTV Motion Pictures, told IndiaFM. On his part, Pradeep Guha said that they started shooting the film in October last year and would be releasing the film in September, thereby keeping the budget in check and not going haywire vis-a-vis the economics of the film.

Fiza revolves around the relationship between a widowed mother (Jaya Bachchan) living in the hope that her son, Amaan (Hrithik Roshan), will return one day, and her daughter Fiza (Karisma Kapoor) who, fed up with living with uncertainty, resolves to go in search of her brother. Hrithik Roshan, director Khalid Mohamed and producer Pradeep Guha addressed the press on 27th August at The Royal Meridien, Sahar.
