[tps_footer]Even after his overbearing issues like stammering during puberty, spat with his childhood sweetheart Sussanne Khan and his ongoing legal war with actress Kangana Ranaut has not affected Hrithik Roshan’s positive outlook towards life a teeny bit. As he looks back, actor Hrithik Roshan firmly believes that he has been through the turmoils of life and has constantly evolved with time and this has only made him a better person. Wishful thinking!
“I constantly believe in evolving as a human being, an actor, and a performer. As I look back, I see myself as an evolved person who has seen great highs and lows and still soldiered on,” Hrithik told IANS in an interview.
The actor is currently in the news for his legal spat with Kangana Ranaut, who he was apparent dating. The two have slapped legal notices against each other stating that their image is being tarnished publicly!
Issues cropped up when Kangana hinted at Hrithik being her “ex” when she said in an interview that she fails to understand “why exes do silly things to get your attention”. The topic of discussion was Hrithik’s hand in getting Kangana replaced in the project by Sonam Kapoor in “Aashiqui 3”. Oops! Now we know who started the battle.
In an indirect jab to Kangana’s reply, Hrithik had later tweeted: “There are more chances of me having had an affair with the Pope and any of the (I’m sure wonderful) women the media has been naming. Thanks but no thanks.” Below the belt, don’t you think ?
This set the podium for their legal war.
When asked about how his good or bad times have influenced him as an actor or as a human being, he chose to let it go unanswered but said that while everybody wants to change something about their lives, they compromise with situation and time.
“I believe if you are not rediscovering yourself and pushing boundaries, then you are not alive. Everybody wants to change something about their life, but they are either too afraid, too lazy, or too comfortable with the way things are,” he said.
The actor is currently the brand ambassador of the watch brand Rado and recently launched the Swiss watchmaker’s chocolate brown high-tech ceramic collection. Which let us tell you, is fabulous!
Hrithik says that his ability to reinvent himself “in new roles resonates with the brand’s image to constantly innovate, making it a perfect fit”.
But at a time when some senior actors are facing criticism for choosing wrong brand endorsements, Hrithik says that he only works with those brands that inspire him.
“There is a high focus placed upon the importance of choosing a reliable, trustworthy celebrity to endorse or sponsor a company’s product, while still balancing the celebrity’s power to influence their consumers. And for me, I work with people and brands that inspire me. Our values and message need to be the same,” he told.
With time being such an important part in everybody’s life, the father of two feels that he always tries to be commit to his deadlines.
“Quite often we hear of our busy schedules and insane shoot hours. Despite this, it’s important to manage to be punctual and stay true to one’s profession. I try to be very sincere and committed to my films and deadlines,” he said.
Last seen onscreen in 2014 released action film “Bang Bang!” the actor is currently shooting for Ashutosh Gowariker’s directorial “Mohenjo Daro”. Also starring debutante Pooja Hegde and veteran actor Kabir Bedi, the movie is set in the ancient city of Mohenjo Daro in the era of the Indus Valley civilisation.
The movie marks Gowariker’s second collaboration with Hrithik after 2008 film “Jodhaa Akbar”. For Hrithik, “doing a period drama is always a challenge”.
“I am travelling back into time and it’s been a great journey and a great experience. The other movie (‘Kaabil’ directed by Sanjay Gupta and produced by Rakesh Roshan) is a love story-cum-revenge drama and it’s shaping well,” said Hrithik. Well Hrithik ,we wish you luck and may your legal cases make a peace treaty soon!
