The Krrish 3 actor drove down to a Shiv mandir in Panvel on Saturday evening

Hrithik Roshan has been following the tradition of visiting this particular Shiv temple with his folks every year since the last 12 years. So this year, even though he is busy shooting for Krrish 3 (with Priyanka Chopra), Bang Bang (with Katrina Kaif) and Shuddhi (with Kareena Kapoor Khan), the actor made sure he took this holy trip with his family and grandparents.

“Hrithik couldn’t turn down such an appeal from his grandfather so he requested the producers to shift the schedule slightly. Last night Hrithik drove down to Panvel with his entire family,” a birdie chirped. The Roshans reached their Panvel farmhouse on Saturday night (March 9) and celebrated Mahashivratri there the next day.

And wethinks, this year Hrithik’s visit holds a special significance because he is playing the role of Lord Shiva in Shuddhi, a movie based on Amit Tripathi’s book The Immortals of Meluha. Will Lord Neelkanth’s blessings work its magic on Roshan’s movie? Time to wait and watch peeps.

But till we do that, take a look at these images of Hrithik Roshan and his family in Panvel.
