I’m the kind who can make bad look good, says Hrithik Roshan

Hrithik Roshan is sporting a mean new look and an attitude to boot!

With ‘Krrish’ about to release and Sussanne expected to deliver in April, After Hours caught Hrithik in an emotional mood

With such huge expectations from you and ‘Krrish’, are you nervous?

I never think of myself as a good actor who can pull off anything. Whatever comes is from my hard work. I don’t think I am a very talented person.

What’s special about this film?

We’ve made a film never before attempted in Hindi cinema. Fantasy has been a part of our culture, but we only associate fantasy with the mukut and the bow and arrow. In ‘Krrish’, we have gone beyond that.

You’ll be a dad in a couple of months. Excited?

I’ve no words to describe my feelings. I am yet to comprehend the miracle that’s growing. I will know once I set my eyes on the baby. I do get anxious, but I have learnt to be calmer about it.

Are you going to be anything like your father?

To live up to that image is a big challenge. There’s a saying that rings quite true, ‘the day you realise that your father was always right, is the time when you have a son who thinks you are wrong.’ I think that sums it all up.

Your success is compared to Abhishek Bachchan’s. Does it affect you?

Yes it does. I’m a firm believer in competition. I have been insecure about my past work and of all the actors that I have worked with. Believe me, most actors are, though not many admit it.

Do you keep a tab on the box office status of other actors?

It’s nothing calculated. Competition just adds more fuel into my run. My potential and capacity are tested. I’m more concerned with how I can be better than the competition.

Did you have to work hard to play a bad character in ‘Dhoom 2’?

(Laughing) I’ll say this - I’m the kind of guy who can make bad look good!

But being too good can be boring…

I agree with that. But can you imagine how bad I can be with this goody-goody image? I can do all the naughty things and still pretend to be this wonderful guy.

So you are saying you have been a great actor off-screen?

(Laughing) I might just wink to that.
