'Impossible dreams can come true'

Nothing can be more disturbing for a youngster than to be dubbed a 'waster.' It can hurt even more when the world distances itself because he's different physically.

Hrithik Roshan endured failure, but didn't lose hope. "Life was tough for me. When I was a kid, nobody played with me because they thought I looked ugly with my extra thumb. It pained me. So once I thought of getting it surgically removed," he confides.

But I didn't. Slowly, I realized that the exterior is not the criterion for love and success."

Hrithik is readying for Lakshya , made by the Dil Chahta Hai team of director Farhan Akhtar producer and Ritesh Sidhwani. Hrithik believes playing Karan Shergill in the film was an enriching experience.

In the movie, too, he's dubbed a waster. But when he gets the opportunity, his entire personality transforms.

Hrithik says he identifies with the character. "There was a phase in my life I cannot forget. I was 18, I felt equally confused, hopeless and aimless. It's killing, but I hung in there. Today, I feel wanted, loved and glorious," he smiles.

Hrithik's journey is enlightening at a time when several youngsters are going astray.

"I can only say that when things looked hazy I held on to my belief. I took the difficult route to success. That's how you discover yourself," he says.

He began his journey as an assistant director and the rest is history. "You've got to start somewhere. Impossible dreams also come true," says Hrithik.

Hrithik, who is working with Amitabh Bachchan in Lakshya , feels it's an honor to share the frame with him. And about Prabhudeva, who choreographed him, Hrithik says, "Please don't compare us. It's an insult to him. He is far superior than I am."

With a clutch of awards in the bag, Hrithik's on a high. "I believe hard work cannot escape people. You will be appreciated. But again, I don't believe in resting on my laurels. It's time to take my next step."
