Hrithik Roshan to make first public appearance post his surgery today Less than a month ago, Hrithik Roshan underwent a brain surgery (on July 7). But the actor has already resumed work. Today, in what will be his first public appearance post-operation, he’ll launch the trailer of his upcoming film, Krrish 3. Hrithik feels the superhero film, directed by Rakesh Roshan, has made him a stronger person. “The journey (of making a film) in itself is a huge reward. Making movies is a way of serving people. And in that process, it adds a lot of growth to oneself too. I have grown a lot through the challenges of Krrish 3. It has helped me become a stronger, better and more powerful person,” says Hrithik, adding that he “felt powerful even on the operation table”. 


He says he feels immense gratitude for all the support he has received from millions of well-wishers. He adds, “There’s no reason not to feel powerful at any point in your life. You shouldn’t be controlled by your environment. If you keep your attitude strong, you can sail through anything.” Post the injury (which took place on the sets of Bang Bang), is he going to be more careful while shooting? “Pain is a sign that something is wrong and you have to pay extra attention to it. I’ll take more precautions in the future,” he says, but adds, “If my mind can imagine something, I’ll do it, but carefully.”





The Curious Case of Hrithik

Promoting an action film can be gruelling, especially after you’ve gone through a complicated brain surgery. But just like his character in the film, it is safe to say that Hrithik Roshan is stuff superheroes are made of. Despite the odds, Hrithik, speaking to Mirror for the first time since his surgery, sounds wonderful. “I do get the occasional headache, but overall my health is much better,” he says smilingly. “I’m in a happy frame of my mind, and I cannot wait to unveil the first look of Krrish 3.” Portraying as many as three strikingly different looks, Hrithik says the journey has been a fairly challenging one. “The Rohit look was very difficult to attain. Koi Mil Gaya released in 2003, so we needed the character to look aged.” Like Amitabh Bachchan in Paa, Hrithik spent nearly four and half hours to get ready for those scenes with a prosthetic expert. “Mike Stringer (best known for Lord of the Rings trilogy) was flown in to do the makeup and prosthetics. He was present for two schedules,” he says. 


Before approaching the character, Stringer sat for multiple screenings of Koi Mil Gaya. Then both, Hrithik and Stringer, tried out several looks before they took a final call. “Rohit’s character will continue to have child like qualities, but he will also look like a father (to Krishna). Ï had to balance that out. And importantly, that character wants to make everyone around him happy. So that element had to be retained,” Hrithik says. Since the prosthetics had to be done on-set, Hrithik would report for work five hours in advance. On the other hand, Krishna, who is seen as Rohit’s son, didn’t need any make-up whatsoever. And for Krrish, the superhero? “The mask which is based on Krishna’s chakra is a slightly enhanced version of the original,” explains the actor, who has recently finished the film’s dubbing. “I had to modulate my voice in three different styles, but the final product looks pretty good,” he concludes.
