Be your own strength, says Hrithik Roshan

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

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.
