"I love Singapore," exclaims Hrithik when he met tabla! at a hotel in Juhu, Mumbai earlier this week. "I have been there so many times for work and holidays.
The longest time I have spent in Singapore was when we were shooting Krrish. I was there for almost two months and by the end, I knew the city like the back of my hand," he adds.
The 39-year-old Bollywood superstar will be back in the city for the Singapore International Deepavali Shopping Festival next week and he is looking forward to the visit. "I am expecting a lot of love when I am in Singapore for the shopping festival and an opportunity to give a lot of love.
This will be an opportunity to meet all my fans there. And to spread the word about Krrish 3. I am looking forward to having a great time with everyone in Singapore. So, get ready Singapore, I am coming."
While shopping is one of his favourite activities in Singapore, Hrithik isn't sure he will get a chance to indulge on this trip. "I don't know if I'll have the time to shop but if Sussanne travels with me, she will be a great help to the economy of Singapore," he says with a laugh.
Also high on his list of why he loves Singapore are the country's gastronomical delights and its people. "I love the food in Singapore. The variety and quality that you get there is mind-boggling. The people are very nice.
I get a chance to walk on the road which is not a luxury I have here in India. I get recognised by only every sixth person. But it's nice because I get a chance to meet my fans. Singapore is a great place to relax."
Hrithik has fond memories of his various holidays in Singapore with wife Sussanne and sons Hrehaan and Hridhaan.
