Be your own strength, says Hrithik Roshan
Actor Hrithik Roshan (right), who overcame stammering and a back problem, says that while the emotional support of family and friends is important in overcoming obstacles in life, it’s not indispensable.
“In my journey, my family was there as an emotional support. Without an emotional support, it becomes harder, but I would not advocate to people that without emotional support, you cannot do it (anything). I believe you have all the resources you need in life, within you.”
“Sometimes you feel the lack of love or someone who is not there to hold you or hug you, I will not propagate that... I believe that you can do without that and if you become the source of your own strength, it would be great. I know it is difficult but I have practised it,” adds Hrithik, who split from his wife Sussanne Khan in December 2013.
Hrithik was asked about the most important family member and especially the most important woman whom he would like to acknowledge for his success story. He took a pause, and said: “I think what supported me was a visual of myself five years from now. I chose to sit and visualise myself doing the things I wanted to do, which people thought that I should not be doing or may not be safe. But I could see my ideal or better me.
“I had a recurring dream of a man with his hair flying and who’s waving at me. And finally in the movie Krrish, I became that guy.”
He says he would like to share with the world his belief that it is possible to look at adversity in the face and still emerge victorious.
