Celebrity photographer Dabboo Ratnani is back with another stunning calendar shoot with Bollywood stars. As he is gradually unveiling one picture at a time, fans are eagerly waiting to see what magic he has created with his lens. Dabboo has already released pictures of Alia Bhatt, Vidya Balan, Tiger Shroff, Kriti Sanon, Abhishek Bachchan, Vijay Deverakonda, Kiara Advani to name a few. His frequent collaborator, Hrithik Roshan's picture is yet to be disclosed. 

Talking about Hrithik, Dabboo recalled the actor's first portfolio with him. The celebrity photographer revealed to an entertainment portal that his portfolio helped Hrithik bag his debut film, Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai (2000). "I shot Hrithik’s first portfolio before Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai. He got the movie because of it. His father, Rakesh Roshan called me after the photoshoot and said that after watching my portfolio, he decided to make a film with his son," Dabboo told.

Dabboo further shared, "When Hrithik came to me, he did not tell me he was Rakesh Roshan’s son. He was a junior to me in school, so we had that connection and he used that link to say how he got to know about me. He came to my house, showed me his clothes and through the whole time, he did not tell me his second name. He just introduced himself as Hrithik. It was only after Rakesh sir called me that I got to know he was his son."

He added, "Hrithik really loved that I did not discriminate on the basis that he was a star kid. I gave him as much attention as I did give to anyone else, and because of that, that friendship has lasted more than 25 years. He told me that he always wants me to stay honest with him. And with so much experience in the industry, they know who is genuine and who is fake."
