This is why Hrithik Roshan is Mr Per­fec­tion

Over nearly two decades, Hrithik Roshan has played a va­ri­ety of char­ac­ters, in films span­ning sev­eral gen­res, but 2017 is when he achieved per­fec­tion in his own eyes.

Hrithik’s per­for­mance as a vis­ually im­paired man in Kaa­bil has been rated by crit­ics and fans as one of his top acts. He him­self says, “Frankly, I’ll know that maybe two or three years down the line, when I watch the film again. There are good chances of it be­ing the first film in my life that I’d be 100% sat­is­fied with.”

The ac­tor, who usu­ally has one re­lease a year — that’s how it has been since 2011 — ad­mits that most of the times, when he watches any of his films two-three years af­ter its re­lease, he isn’t fully sat­is­fied. “At that time, I could’ve thought the film was good, but later, I see the flaws and the mis­takes I made,” he says. That makes Hrithik feel that he needs to “evolve more as an ac­tor”.

He adds, “But I’m hope­ful that Kaa­bil is go­ing to score the max­i­mum points when I watch it again in two-three years. So, in that way, it may turn out to be my most sat­is­fy­ing film.”

Re­cently, Hrithik also did a spe­cial photo shoot with a vis­ually im­paired pho­tog­ra­pher, Charles Neves Rao. “The word ‘hand­i­cap’ ex­ists in my dic­tio­nary, but the con­no­ta­tion of that word is not a bad one,” says the ac­tor. He be­lieves that the con­no­ta­tion is an em­pow­er­ing one, and ex­plains, “Very few peo­ple have such an op­por­tu­nity, wherein you have an ob­vi­ous and ap­par­ent short­com­ing, but you can di­rectly at­tack it and turn your life into the great­est story ever told.”
