Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil and Shahrukh Khan’s Raees are going to clash at the box office. Much has been said and written about the clash but Hrithik who is just back from a family holiday, says, “I am feeling relaxed at the moment.”
Talking further about the clash, Hrithik Roshan says, “They probably could not find an appropriate date other than January 25. However, Shah Rukh Khan and I are friends. Of course, friendship and business are two different things, but we will remain friends forever.”
The actor says it feels great when people from India call him an International Star. “When people here have given me the title of “International Star”, there is no need for me to work in Hollywood!”. Praising fellow actor Priyanka Chopra for doing well in Hollywood, Hrithik says, “Priyanka is a very talented actor. We can expect much more from her as she always surprises us with her performances.”
When asked why he thinks the Khans have not yet tried their luck in Hollywood, Hrithik says, “I don’t think that’s their goal. Maybe their ultimate aim is to do good films here in Bollywood.”
He also talked about Kaabil, “This character needed to be played honestly. Although we could see, we had to pretend being visually impaired. It was challenging but a great learning experience for me. Without Yami, this film would have not been possible at all. You’ll have to watch her splendid performance to see how she has done justice to her character.”
A doting father to his two boys, Hrithik says, “I always allow my kids to do whatever they want to experience, but I explain the good and bad effects of their actions to them. They need to tread their own path, fall, get up and keep walking. I do not wish to deprive them of trying anything. When they saw my film Mohenjo Daro, they came home and told me, ‘Papa the film is good’! Probably they must have heard about the film not having done well at the BO. Also after watching the trailer of Kaabil, they gave me 8.5 out of 10!” he says with a smile.
