Bollywood heartthrob Hrithik Roshan has finally decided to quit smoking and asked his fans to join in.
The 36-year-old star, who was on two month break from Twitter while filming for Zoya Akhtar’s ‘Zindagi Milegi Na Dubara’ along with Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol in Spain, returned to the social networking site on Thursday to make the announcement.
"Hello tweeple!! Giving up smoking today! Any of u disgusting smokers wanna join me?? Love to the rest of u non smokers!! (sic)," Hrithik wrote on his Twitter account.
The actor reportedly got hooked on to cigarettes while filming for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Guzaarish’, in which his character is shown to be a wheel chair bound smoker.
There were reports of actor kicking the butt in June but the actor had denied it. "Read news that I’m trying 2 use nicotine patches 2 quit smoking. Not true. I smoke 2-5 cigarettes a day now not d best thing but if well balanced wth exercise n diet, not too bad either. will let u know when I decide to quit cold turkey!which should be verry soon!! (sic)"
Hrithik, whose last film ‘Kites’ was a box office disappointment, will be seen alongside Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in ‘Guzaarish’ this November.
The actor is in Spain shooting for ‘Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara’ opposite Katrina Kaif. Hrithik’s next film is Shekhar Kapoor’s ‘Paani’ which is presently under pre-production.
