Mumbai: Just a day after Salman Khan said ‘Guzaarish’ wasn’t even watched by dogs- “koi kutta bhi nahin gaya”, Hrithik Roshan has slammed the actor for making such a raucous comment.

The actor in a moral bashing to Salman said, “It’s not heroic to laugh or make fun of a filmmaker just because his BO collections are not up there with yours. ‘Guzaarish’ is a super success in its own way. In my opinion a hero never gloats. When you are super successful, it should in fact make you more gracious and loving.”

Asking Salman to be more humble than pompous for his this year’s hit; Hrithik went on say that he would not stand any person talking about Bhansali in such bad terms.

What’s more is that Bhansali too has spoken against Salamn saying, “If such an old and trusted friend can be so insensitive I don’t want anything to do with the entertainment industry.”

However, forgiving as Hrithik is, he said, “This is the time one should use to turn even enemies into friends...just give love, not laugh at others. By the time I finish this sentence, I have already forgiven his words, because I know deep inside he only has love for me and this must have been just a momentary lapse of judgement. Will expect a big hug the next time I meet him”.

But even though Hrithik might have forgiven Salman, a friend of Bhansali said, “What gives Salman the right to decide whether SLB donates to charity or not? Some people like to make a song and dance about their philanthropy. Others do it quietly. Again, Sanjay feels it’s about choices. The films Salman does and the way he projects his charitable causes are as much his prerogative as Sanjay’s approach to cinema and charity. Why comment on another person’s attitude to life?”
