I added my own style: Hrithik Roshan on doing MJ's iconic moves
For the title track of the forthcoming film "Bang Bang", Hrithik Roshan has grooved a la his dance idol, the late King of Pop Michael Jackson. But the Bollywood actor says he's added a dash of his own style to the number.

Hrithik has idolised Michael Jackson since the time he first moved to a dance beat, and he used to learn the moves through play and pause mode for hours.
"I love his style and energy! So, when Bosco (choreographer) and Sid (director Siddharth Anand) said 'Michael Jackson', at first I thought there's no way I could match up, but then I reframed that and did it for my love for him in my own style, my own way," Hrithik said in a statement.
The experience was "fun" for Hrithik, who said, "It's my ode to the inspiration he (Michael Jackson) has been."
The video of the song also features Katrina Kaif.
"This is an out-an-out dance and party track. It's high on glamour, scale and Katrina and I have danced our hearts out," he added.
Produced by Fox Star Studios, "Bang Bang" releases on October 2. The film is directed by Siddharth Anand.
