MUMBAI: Few people know that Hrithik Roshan is extremely soft hearted, sensitive & generous as a person.
The actor, who has been supporting several causes, recently had a life-changing experience while preparing for his role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Guzaarish.
Roshan is playing a paraplegic in the film and in order to get into the character, he has been doing thorough research on the disorder to make sure he looks absolutely convincing.
Says a source close to the actor, "Hrithik is taking his role very seriously and has been reading up on paraplegia and watching videos to understand and study their mannerisms and behavior. In fact, he even visited several people affected by the disease to get a first hand account of their experiences."
But while the process helped him hone his acting skills, it has also left a deep impact on his mind. So much so, that Roshan is now actively taking part in helping people affected with paraplegia.
"The sensitive person that he is, the intensive study & frequent interactions with persons suffering from the disorder has moved Hrithik to a great extent. He came across some young, talented people who were left incapacitated due to paraplegia and immediately decided to his bit to help them," the source adds.
Pledging his solidarity to the cause, Roshan has decided to help the affected persons monetarily as well as through any other means possible.
