Mumbai: Hrithik Roshan, who is currently running busy with the hectic shooting schedule of ‘Agneepath’, went all out of his way for a ‘Just Dance’ contestant.
He wanted to communicate with a contestant, who was hearing impaired, so the actor especially learnt the signs language by taking private lessons from a tutor.
The contestant will appear on the soon-to-aired reality show ‘Just Dance’. “He wanted to be able to express his thoughts to them,” reveals a source to a daily.
One of the participants at the show who came for auditions, Nimeet Kotian, a 21-year old boy was deaf and mute. Duggu was extremely touched by the boy’s story.
“He wanted to praise the mother for instilling such good values in her son and asked his sign language teacher to teach him to communicate what he wanted to say to the mother. After he was done `talking`, there was not a dry eye on the sets,” reports a source.
An insider said to a daily, “Hrithik also sent across a message on a video to a young girl who had auditioned in London. She is hearing impaired since childhood but danced beautifully. Hrithik was so impressed by her performance that he recorded a message for her in sign language and asked the channel to send it to her.”
