Hrithik Roshan man­ages to strike gold at the box of­fice, each time he works on a film di­rected by his fa­ther, Rakesh Roshan. Start­ing with his de­but film, Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai (2000) till the last one Kr­rish 3 (2013), the fa­ther-son duo has an un­matched track record. Hrithik, how­ever, says that work­ing with his fa­ther isn’t al­ways a cake­walk. “While I have worked with my dad a lot of times, I am ac­tu­ally com­fort­able with ev­ery di­rec­tor. Of course, my re­la­tion­ship with other di­rec­tors is frag­ile, and not the same as the one with dad. On other di­rec­tors’ set, I am an ac­tor, and my work ends there. But, with dad, I know that he won’t be able to hide any­thing from me,” says the ac­tor whose last re­lease Kaa­bil got him rave re­views.

Hrithik cred­its his fa­ther’s as­tute sense of busi­ness for the suc­cess of their ven­tures. “My fa­ther is a great busi­ness­man. When I am work­ing with him, I am as­sured that fi­nances will never go wrong be­cause he is very con­cerned about money and in­vest­ments.” In the same breath, he, how­ever, adds that it comes with its own dis­ad­van­tages. “I can’t af­ford to take my own sweet time to get ready for a shot. Dad is very par­tic­u­lar about dead­lines. So, we are al­ways work­ing to fin­ish a project on time and can’t be laid-back. On other peo­ple’s sets, I am the star. Here, I am just another per­son on the set.”

While be­ing acutely aware of his own strengths and weak­nesses as an ac­tor, Hrithik says that he has never been jeal­ous of another ac­tor’s tal­ent.

“When I saw Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, I ab­so­lutely loved Ran­bir (Kapoor) and Anushka (Sharma). But I have never felt that I could’ve done that role bet­ter. That thought never crosses my mind. I don’t get jeal­ous of another ac­tor’s suc­cess,” he ex­plains.
