Hrithik Roshan ends the year on a high
The hunk has another endorsement up his sleeve
Hrithik Roshan who is having a phenomenal run at the box office with two back to back hits in 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' and 'Agneepath' will end 2012 on a high as he receives two more accolades.
Hrithik has been chosen to front popular manufacturer, Mattel's 'Hot Wheels' toy cars. The actor had already shot various commercials and endorsements for the brand in Mumbai earlier this year. Hrithik even attempted to enter the Guinness Book of World Records earlier this month when he attended the event in India in conjunction with Hot Wheels to launch the world's largest vending machine – a 25 foot play station called the 'Hot Wheels Thrill Machine'.
Last week Hrithik attended the 12th Marrakech International Film Festival in Morocco, as 100 years of Indian cinema was celebrated with viewings of classic films, with a special retrospective screening of Hrithik's greatest silver screen moments, including 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara', 'Jodhaa Akbar' and 'Agneepath'.
Hrithik and wife Sussanne walked the red carpet at the opening ceremony with other big names in the industry. The couple also attended the 'Tribute to Indian Cinema' segment where he met the Prince of Morocco.
Speaking about the Marrakech International Film Festival, Hrithik said: "I was truly delighted and honoured to be at the Marrakech International Film Festival. This is a very special year for Indian cinema, and to see the industry celebrated in this way globally is such a momentous moment. I'm absolutely humbled that some of my films have been chosen to be screened at the festival. I hope audiences fall in love with the original movies all over again."
Whilst in Morocco, Hrithik and Sussanne also participated in a brand publicity photo shoot for their friend Christian Louboutin's luxury shoe brand. The photos featuring the actor and his stunning wife will be seen in various top magazines across America.
2013 will see Hrithik in the Indian remake of the Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz starrer 'Knight and Day' with leading lady Katrina Kaif. The year will culminate with the release of his home production, 'Krrish 3', releasing on Diwali 2013.
