Actor Hrithik Roshan says that despite not having back-to-back blockbuster hits at the box office, he chose a script that offered a huge challenge. But, he did rule the part with Super 30, striking a chord with viewers around the world.
Hrithik Roshan was seen playing the role of a Bihari teacher in his last movie Super 30, which has become a huge success at the box office. The handsome hunk had to go for a major transformation to don the rugged role of a teacher who lives in a small house in Patna. What was one of the biggest challenges for the actor was learning the language and the body language of the north Indians.
In a recent candid chat, Hrithik Roshan opened up on the outstanding responses for his performance in Super 30 and said: "Taking up Super 30 was indeed a difficult decision for me. It's not like I've had back-to-back blockbusters to take on a film like this, which is not in the commercial realm. It's not a mainstream film.
Hrithik Roshan continued: "So, when I heard the script, it seemed a difficult call to take. It was a big risk. But I'm a curious soul. I wanted to take on this adventure and do something that pulled my heart strings. Mentally, the calculation didn't seem to be a commercially viable one. But my heart wanted to do it.
"I wanted to find out what would happen if I did it. Doing the film, I learnt a lot of things. Like it's important to follow your heart rather than box-office calculations. I felt strongly about this film. I was guided by my instincts. I'm extremely happy I took that call to do it," the Bollywood actor added.
Hrithik Roshan's performance was widely hailed by the critics and the audience both, while the film has been jotted down in the history to be one of the few films which have been declared tax free in over a record number of 8 states in India. Now he is all set to treat the audience with his action-packed role in War, which is all set to release on October 2.
