I have no regrets, wouldn’t change a thing: Hrithik Roshan on his Bollywood career

In a candid chat, Hrithik Roshan talks about his career, the importance of sports and fitness and more.

On screen, he has portrayed a variety of roles - from a blind man to a quadriplegic and a mentally disabled character. Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan has said he feels “more evolved” every year and with every film.

Is there anything he would like to change about his journey? “Not at all! It has been an amazing journey so far and hopefully there is a lot more to come. Not only did I get a chance to be a part of some amazing films, but also work with some really talented people. I have no regrets and I wouldn’t change a thing,” he said.

Asked if he sees himself directing in the future, Hrithik said, “I love acting, it’s my passion. Maybe someday if I feel it’s the right time for me to go behind the camera, I will. I’m a man who loves challenges.”

Hrithik, who is the son of filmmaker Rakesh Roshan, made his acting debut in 2000 with the blockbuster Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai.

Touching almost two decades in Hindi filmdom, the actor has been a part of several films like Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Koi Mil Gaya, Krrish, Dhoom 2, Jodhaa Akbar and Guzaarish.

“It’s been 17 years since I made my debut in Bollywood and as I look back, it’s very nostalgic for me. My time in the industry has taught me a lot and helped me grow into the person I am today. My career in the movies has been very rewarding and I cherish each moment,” said Hrithik.

The actor was last seen on screen in Kaabil, where he portrayed a blind man seeking revenge for his wife’s murder. The Hindi film industry has seen a sudden surge of message-based films in the industry in the recent past.

Asked if he feels Bollywood is seeing a new phase where films with messages and dealing issues are taking over commercial films, he said: “Indian cinema is the largest in the world and has stood the test of time, making it so unique.”

“Cinema in India is the biggest form of entertainment and with a great impact on people. In today’s day and age, I feel films have become a powerful medium to deliver a message to the audience,” he said.

Hrithik spoke to IANS in the capacity of being the brand ambassador of luxury timepiece brand RADO, for which he launched a new sport inspired collection earlier this week. “Watches for me are just not an accessory but an integral part of my wardrobe and style. They are also the best way to keep track of time as I believe time management is the key to success,” he said.


I regret not learning the guitar, so I made sure my kids did: Hrithik Roshan

Hrithik will reportedly soon start working on the Anand Kumar biopic, Super 30

When Hrithik Roshan is in the house expect a mad, mad fan frenzy to ensue. And that was exactly the case on Tuesday evening at The Palladium, Mumbai where the Kaabil star launched the a new luxury sport watch collection. "I don't know what I have done to deserve so much love," said a clearly overwhelmed Hrithik. From the look of it, he has it all — a successful career, a band of dedicated fans and some really cool projects in the pipeline, what more can one want? So when T2 Online asked him if he has any regrets in life, we really expected him to turn around and say "none whatsoever." But Hrithik had a totally different response ready.

Taking a moment to calm himself down after the frenzy, Hrithik let out a deep sigh and said, "I regret not having learned to play the guitar. So I made sure my kids did." On the surface, this might seem a rather vague response but it speaks volumes about how close he is to his little boys. As a father he obviously wants his sons to have everything he couldn't. And that's a sentiment that resonates with every parent.

Duggu often gives us glimpses of his two boys — Hrehaan and Hridhaan — on his social media accounts and the deep bond between the three clearly comes across.

At the event, Hrithik also admitted that he's become a bit lazy and indulgent in life post Kaabil. "I've eaten too much (laughs) and perhaps celebrated the success of Kaabil for far too long," he said. But the 43-year-old actor did mention that he is now all set to get back to business.

Though he was unwilling to divulge any details about his next, the biopic based on Anand Kumar, tentatively titled Super 30, "until there's an official announcement on it", he didn't deny it either. And this ain't a fangirl speaking, but Duggu does look fitter and leaner than ever. And with the delish light stubble, we cannot help but wonder if this is his look for the film! Well, if it is, it totally gets a thumbs up from us.


No success without punctuality: Hrithik

Bollywood superstar Hrithik Roshan says punctuality should be one's ultimate ' Lakshya' to become ' Kaabil' in life.
The actor, who is a brand ambassador of luxury watch brand Rado, attributes his time management skills to his father, renowned filmaker Rakesh Roshan.

"Time management and being punctual is extremely important. My father has always stressed upon this thing and has repeated its importance several times," the 43-year-old told ANI as he recently launched a new collection of the brand.

"According to my father, whatever good has happened in his life is because he was punctual. That is why he gives a lot of importance to time and I think I have inculcated that from him. I truly believe that if you're not punctual, it is impossible for you to be successful," he signed off.


The most important lesson Hrithik Roshan learnt from his father

GQ caught up with Hrithik Roshan who launched the new sports collection of the luxury watch brand Rado in Mumbai recently. Obviously, we had a few questions:

How many watches do you own?

Let's see how many events have I done for Rado (laughs). I own about 12 to 13.

And when did you start wearing watches?

I had one in school. I think it was a Swatch, the one where you could see the mechanism inside.

Let’s talk about time. If you were to time travel, what decade would you time travel to, the past or the future?

I’m traveling through time right now. This is the way I would like to time travel, actually go through it, live it. I don’t hope for getting to the future so fast. That is not a mature thought. Enjoy the wonder and the mystery. Let it all reveal itself to you.

And what does time mean to you?

Time, I guess, exists for you to use it well. I think I would co-relate success to time because I really believe that a truly successful man is a person who makes time to do every single thing that he wants to do or has to do. So a person who says, ‘I really want to but I don’t have the time, I can’t find the time’, that person is not a successful man. No matter how moneyed he is. But, a person who has been able to navigate time and been able to harness it, that person will make time for every single thing he wants to do or has to do. That person is truly a successful person in my opinion.

So how do you make time for all the things you want to do?

First of all, your premise has to be ‘I can make time for every single thing I want to do'. Once that is your premise, the possibilities open up and you realise that you can really actually do every single thing you want to do. There are days when I think I don't have the time for a workout and actually ended up doing a proper workout, either in my hotel room or a first class lounge or an airport or craziest of places.

What about your sons? Do they have watches or are they too young to have watches? Or do they just use smartphones?

Yeah, they have phones. Someone just asked me that question and it made me realise that they haven’t really come up to me and asked me for a watch yet. I’d like to think that somehow they are not restricted by time and they're actually on this timeless journey and they don’t find themselves restricted.

A word about punctuality.

Two words actually: very important. Puncuality was the most important lesson my father taught me. He believes he got his big breaks in his career because he was there before time. He also believes there is nothing such as being ‘on time’. You had to be wherever you had to be before time.
