HRITHIK to make his life his life the best
Action in Bollywood films was of the “dhishoom, dhishoom” variety till the 1990s, but advanced technology and increased use of special effects brought in a new twist. Technology may have made action safer but not easier, says Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan, known as much for his superbly executed action stunts in films and ads as for his acting. “Action is not easier (with better technology). Maybe it is safer,”.
Hrithik has done films like Mission Kashmir, Krrish, Dhoom 2 and Agneepath, all of which gave him ample scope to demonstrate the daredevilry that has won him so many fans. He recently wrapped up the action-packed Krrish 3, and even jumped off a cliff in Bali for an ad for aerated drink Mountain Dew.
“There is a lot more that you can visualise now than before. There is a lot more scope for you to think out of the box, and things which were unimaginable a few years back are now possible. At 39, and after over a decade of making his way to the A-listers of Bollywood, Hrithik, son of veteran actor-filmmaker Rakesh Roshan, believes success comes when “dreams turn to challenges”.
