The actor was shooting for an ad film at Mehboob Studio when he came to meet Sridevi in her vanity van. She was busy giving interviews to the reporters for her upcoming film.
He told Sridevi, "I promise, I will be there on the 4th. Actually I was supposed to leave on 4th night with papa (Rakesh Roshan) for my outdoor, but I will make sure I take the next day flight because I have to be there on 4th to see the film."
He praised her looks, saying, "You are looking beautiful. It is such a shock to see you back looking as fresh as ever. In fact, I don't think you ever looked this fresh."
"I am feeling so awkward because I don't know how to compliment you. You are looking so hot in the promos. Not just me, all my friends are just talking about your film. It is so heart touching," he told the actress.
Recollecting the shot, Hrithik said: "My first shot of my life was with you. I made so many mistakes. You were being very nice and making me comfortable. You are going to shock the entire nation and be a winner with 'English Vinglish'."
