The Roshans wish to keep her visit as low key as possible until she returns from the Maldives Thursday for a series of press interactions in Mumbai.
Hrithik wrapped up the final few days of shooting with Sanjay Leela Bhansali for “Guzaarish” before Barbara’s arrival.
Hrithik and his wife Susanne gladly played Barbara’s host on her arrival in Mumbai Monday.
About her current visit to India, Rakesh Roshan, the film’s producer, said: “We don’t want to create any unnecessary hype about her presence. But we do want to make it clear that we didn’t sign Barbara for ‘Kites’ because we needed any Caucasian girl.”
“Barbara is not just a pretty girl. She is an amazing actress. You have to see her in ‘Cosas Insignificantes’ where she had shaved off her hair. She is an outstanding dramatic actress,” he added.
Barbarba spent Monday in Mumbai with the Roshans and left early Tuesday morning for the Maldives.
She leaves Mumbai May 2 and will join Hrithik for the US premiere of “Kites”.
