Come October 2, actor Hrithik Roshan will know if all the effort he put testing and daring fellow actors on Twitter before the release of his upcoming action thriller, Bang Bang, was worth his while or not.
Hrithik, and his film's leading lady Katrina Kaif, skipped the customary city tour promotions and television spotting, putting in all their faith in the industry-wallahs for the promotion of the film.
Challenging his Bollywood colleagues for almost a month now, throwing odd dares at them with hashtag #BangBangDare, Hrithik roped in actors Ranveer Singh, Farhan Akhtar, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Priyanka Chopra and more recently Salman Khan among others which led to some entertaining results.
While he asked Aamir to 'drop the transistor' from the PK poster, in which he features nude except for the strategically placed transistor, Salman has been dared to present a painting with a message. Though the two are yet to give Hrithik a befitting reply, they are not the only one to be sitting on the prospect of taking the dare on as of now.
Here it is. 2 d one who is more about other people than himself, PAINT!! And give d world a message! ANY! @BeingSalmanKhan qubool ?- Hrithik Roshan (@iHrithik) September 30, 2014
Others who are yet to complete their Bang Bang dares are Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor.
While Arjun has to incorporate Bang Bang's iconic line "5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Bang Bang" in any iconic style from cinema, Shraddha is challenged to record a song sans make-up.
Meanwhile, actors Shah Rukh Khan, Ranveer Singh and Farhan Akhtar's dare have been quite sensational and quirky.
As a part of his dare Shah Rukh shared his workout video showing off his well chiseled and enviable body from his upcoming film Happy New Year.
Ranveer Singh took idiocy and quirkiness to a whole new level by performing a gig on Main Aisa Kyun Hoon dressed in Hrithik's Krrish costume in the middle of a road in Mumbai.
Farhan Akhtar too obliged his 'Mental Boy' by riding a bicycle in the middle of the road in Mumbai wearing a skydiving costume.
Bollywood's leading ladies Nargis Fakhri and Priyanka Chopra salso proved that they are sturdier than one can imagine. While Priyanka did not shy away from flexing her muscles, that too in heels, Nargis had an interesting rap song she recorded and posted as her rejoinder.
Those challenged initially by Hrithik Roshan were actor Uday Chopra, photographer Dabboo Ratnani, his sister-in-law Farah Ali Khan.
Going by the enthusiasm, one can't wait to see what Bang Bang is all about.
