Actor Hrithik Roshan will sound the mahurat clap for the Marathi film Smile Please on 1 March at an event in Mumbai.

The film will be directed by designer-turned-filmmaker Vikram Phadnis. This is his second directorial after the Marathi film Hrudayantar (2017), which starred Subodh Bhave and Mukta Barve.

Hrithik Roshan shares a close friendship with Phadnis. He had a cameo in Hrudayantar in which he played himself.

Hrudayantar was about a little girl suffering from cancer. With her days numbered, she expresses a wish to meet her favourite actor Hrithik. The actor happily obliges and rushes to meet her.

Hrithik had also launched the trailer of Hrudayantar. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, on the other hand, had launched the film’s music.

Reacting to the gestures of the two artistes, Phadnis had told the Indian Express newspaper then, “What Hrithik and Aishwarya have done for us, we are indebted to them. It was important for Hrithik to act in the film, and I am glad he chose to go ahead with it and do it. His role in the film is just beautiful.”

The cast of Smile Please will be revealed at the launch.
