He was a paral­ysed ma­gi­cian in Guzaar­ish (2010), a grown up boy with a mind of a 10-year-boy in Koi… Mil Gaya (2003). Yet ac­tor Hrithik Roshan says his up­com­ing film Kaa­bil, where he will be seen as a vis­ually chal­lenged per­son, is the tough­est role of his ca­reer. And the 43-year-old seems to have a strong rea­son to make such a state­ment.

“There are a lot of risks I have taken in this film in terms of my per­for­mance, by not mak­ing it stereo­typ­i­cal. All ac­tors have their crutches; they have a way of di­a­logue de­liv­ery, or they fall back on com­mer­cial tricks. All of us do that in our films. But I have not used any of that in this film. In fact, I have not even acted in the film keep­ing the au­di­ence in mind. Cater­ing to the au­di­ence is al­ways an easy thing to do,” says Hrithik.

While he as­serts that play­ing this char­ac­ter was a great ex­pe­ri­ence, he does con­fess that he was hes­i­tant about his choice, ini­tially. “I was a lit­tle more afraid with this film be­cause I knew that it was go­ing to be dif­fi­cult. I have not done a char­ac­ter like this in a long time. By this, I mean a char­ac­ter with emo­tional depth and the one which has this kind of a growth graph,” he says. How­ever, he is happy he took up the chal­lenge. “I en­joyed do­ing this role be­cause it was dif­fi­cult,” says Hrithik, adding, “Ev­ery film comes with its dif­fi­cul­ties and it is a good thing be­cause if it’s an easy role then it gets bor­ing.”

The film di­rected by San­jay Gupta, also stars Yami Gau­tam as the lead, along­side Hrithik.

As ac­tors we have our crutches. We also fall back on com­mer­cial tricks, but I haven’t used any of that in this film HRITHIK ROSHAN, AC­TOR
