Money for me is not a motivator: Hrithik Roshan

Added by harini on Mar 23, 2012

Hrithik Roshan, who is currently busy playing superhero in ‘Krrish 3’, said that it was his life long dream to be a superhero.

“I’ve been emulating superheroes all my life; a recurring childhood dream was to fly. After doing that in my dreams for all these years, it’s suddenly coming true in real life,” said Hrithik Roshan to a daily.

The actor said that his 6 year old son, Hrehaan, was currently in the same phase and keeps jumping off the stools.

“I had to sit him down and explain the laws of gravity,” laughed the actor.

Last year during the shooting of the movie Hrithik Roshan had a major accident on sets which resulted in knee injury and a double slip disc. Watching his son pain, Hrithik Roshan’s father and producer of the movie Rakesh Roshan almost shelved the project permanently.

“I was in a dark place that was full of negative vibes,” he said.

The actor consulted friends, therapists, surfed the Internet and finally connected with trainer Kris Genthin and his nutritionist wife Marcia Johnson, who helped him, get back in shape.

The actor, who called ‘Greek God’ due to his drop dead gorgeous looks and body, said that he had no attachment to the tag ‘Greek God’.

“No, there’s no attachment to the image of a Greek God because I know it’s all transitory. For me, this body is just a torso, a pair of hands and legs and a stomach that everyone has. The idea is to use food and the gym as tools to sculpt a body and lifestyle, which can benefit me professionally and personally,” he said.

The actor is planning on taking a long and much needed vacation once the movie is completed. He said that during his vacation he plans on sharing the know-how with other health enthusiasts soon.

“Once we wrap up Krrish 3 in August-September, I’ll take time off and work on that. For now, it’s about dreaming big with Krrish and Rohit Mehra (name of Krrish’s father in the film), and about completing the trilogy that began with Koi Mil Gaya (2003),” he said.

The actor, whose last movie ‘Agneepath’ was a blockbuster hit and earned him his entry into 100 crores club, said that he was glad of the appreciation coming his way.

“I’m happy. Though I have started understanding the business now, I don’t get into figures. Money for me is not a motivator, it’s the creativity that counts,” he said.

“I’m just elated with the response my portrayal of Vijay Dinanath Chauhan has elicited. I’ve had to work hard for a year-and-a-half to enter this club, but it was worth it. It’s reaffirmed my belief in the power of a good script and a director’s vision, while nullifying my reservations about remakes,” he concluded.
