It's all work, no play for Hrithik

The actor launched into beast mode for his upcoming film and is giving red carpets and social dos a miss Hrithik Roshan has busied himself with his upcoming romance-thriller, Kaabil, and is showing no signs of slowing down from the rigorous schedule, set to wrap up in June-end. Directed by Sanjay Gupta, and produced by Rakesh Roshan, the film features Hrithik as a blind man on the path of vengeance, opposite Yami Gautam and actor brothers Ronit and Rohit Roy as antagonists. 


Mirror photographer recently snapped the 42-year-old actor in character as he stepped out of his vanity van at a Bandra studio. “He had filmed for 12-hours at a stretch, which, assistants from the sets revealed, is an everyday practice. In fact, the crew recently took a break to attend the premiere of Ram Gopal Varma's latest release, Veerappan, their first weekend off ever since the schedule kicked off last month,“ a source informed Mirror. “Hrithik is pushing himself for the action sequences, and spends hours prepping for the stunts. He is extremely committed to the film's deadline,“ adds the source. 


While he's in beast-mode at work, Hrithik is keeping a low profile socially. He skipped the star-studded Preity Zinta-Gene Goodenough wedding reception, as well as Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover's nuptial celebrations. He was also conspicuous by his absence at Karan Johar's 44th birthday celebrations in London even though the Queen's City figures high on his list of holiday spots. However, he made it a point to attend a family lunch to celebrate son Hridaan's birthday along with ex-wife Sussanne Khan. He also took his sons out for a film screening last Saturday. 


Last seen on the big screen in the 2014 actioner Bang Bang!, Hrithik has been filming Ashutosh Gowariker's period drama, Mohenjo Daro, which also features debutante Pooja Hegde and Kabir Bedi. The Independence Day release is set in the era of the Indus Valley civilisation. After wrapping up the film Hrithik travelled overseas for 15 days for two back-to-back events. One week after his return, he dived into Kaabil. At a brand endorsement event the only media interaction he agreed to was releasing a ubiquitous statement for the product he endorses, apart from obliging the shutterbugs.
