Say What! Did Hrithik Roshan just admit that he isn’t comfortable playing sexy characters like in ‘War’?
Hrithik Roshan has time and again brought memorable characters to the screen. Hailed as the millennial’s star and sexiest actor in Asia, the actor spills the beans on how he brings the many nuances of the diverse range of characters he has portrayed on-screen. His projects like ‘Bang Bang’, ‘Dhoom 2’, ‘War’ keep swooning audiences like never before with his phenomenal looks! Playing ‘sexy’ takes a lot of hard work and that is what comes as an added insight from the superstar. Does he admit that he isn’t comfortable playing the sexy lead on-screen?
Hrithik shares, “I am frankly more comfortable doing characters where the exterior is not something I have to sell as ‘sexy’. Because it really is a lot of hard work, physically, and there is a chance to get carried away by that exterior.” Well said, we must say!
He further adds, “I need to be extra vigilant in each shot, to make sure my character is coming from a real place and does not appear pretentious about his looks when facing the camera. Unlike a character like Rohan from ‘Kaabil’ or Anand from ‘Super 30’ where it is just all heart — that to me is easier. But then again, the mental stimulation when playing people like Aryan from ‘Dhoom 2’ and Kabir from ‘War’ is just unmatchable. So, both have benefits.”
Hrithik Roshan’s last movie ‘War’ became the highest-grossing movie of 2019, collecting over Rs 300 crores at the box-office. With a legacy of challenging yet promising roles, Hrithik has a strong fanbase and unmatchable popularity.
While he imbibed the minutest characteristic of Anand Kumar to portray the Bihari teacher in ‘Super 30’, the ‘sexy’ agent Kabir’s transformation for ‘War’ just within months, was applauded all across. Hrithik had a super successful 2019 with two back-to-back releases and we are hoping he would make an announcement for his next project soon.
Hrithik had been roped in to play the lead in the ‘Satte Pe Satta’ remake to be made by Farah Khan and Rohit Shetty. However, after the massive success of ‘War’, Hrithik walked out of the project and since there the film’s fate has been in limbo. Let’s wait and see which film Hrithik decides to do next.
