It was the first break for Hrithik Roshan in five years. And he seems to have enjoyed every bit of it.
"I had a blast. It is very important to live a life beyond the (film) sets. It is important that one must live on an island like Maldives -- get introduced to new cultures and meet new people from different parts of the world and learn from them.
"The place is heaven on earth."
He and wife Suzanne stayed at the Four Seasons Resort at Kuda Huraa.
"They have a private coral island, fringed with white sand and crystal clear water - the experience was too good to be true.
"Though I have travelled extensively abroad - mostly with my crew, Maldives is my favourite destination," gushed Hrithik.
