May 18, 2010, (Sawf News) - Michael Jackson had a chance encounter with 'Kites' lead pair Hrithik Roshan and Barbara Mori while they were filming in Los Angeles in late 2008.

The 'Thriller' singer had reportedly been trying to seal a deal for the 15 bedroom mansion for seven years.
Recalling the encounter Hrithik reportedly said, ""I've been a huge Jackson fan since childhood. So dad [Rakesh Roshan, the films producer and fourth person in the photo] requested the mansion owner that we'd like to come over and meet Jackson. Instead he turned up in the room to meet us. That meeting is etched in my memory."
