Hrithik is in happy as well as anxious state of mind. June 23 will obviously be one of the biggest days of his life when the most awaited film of the year will hit the screens. ‘Krrish’ with Hrithik Roshan in the lead will release. He is happy with the proceedings of his life and at this hour he is cool playing the role of a father for son Hrehaan. 



Excerpts from a chat with him: Congratulations for your newborn. How do you feel being a father? 


I just cannot put down in words how it feels to have Hrehaan in my life. It’s an incredible feeling. I feel he has the sweetest smiles. Truly after his birth everything has changed around me, even my life has changed. My approach towards things is different and more humane. Also I can manage time more appropriately. Earlier I used to get worried about things, now I feel more organized. I know what to do and when to do it, I know what time I have to be at work and what time I have to be at home. And I don’t mind the sleepless nights. 



So you’re turning to be an ideal dad? 


I haven’t reached that height yet. I consider my dad ideal and the best. He is more than a father for me. Our understanding and rapport is terrific. We can read each other’s mind very well. There is no ego or anything between us. I consider him to be my biggest support and strength. 



On the professional front you’ve been away from screens for long. Is their any insecurity factor that your contemporaries like Abhishek Bachchan have gone ahead of you? 


Competition has always proved good for me. When there is competition from actors like Abhishek Bachchan it instigates the feeling that you’ve to do better. On my part I just believe in doing the best work. I look forward to do the roles and character in the perfect manner. 



The release date of Krrish is nearing. Are you feeling worried or anxious? 


Frankly no. Actually I didn’t get the time to get nervous. So much work was in hand. Now I’m a bit free and so I’m participating in the promotion of the film. May be with the D-day approaching nearer there will be some anxiety. 



There so much hype about the film and your super hero image is catching fancy. Tell us more about it. 


The superhero concept is very new in Bollywood and with ‘Krrish’ it will be a changing trend in the Indian cinema. Here the superhero is not the savior. 



After your last film ‘Koi Mil Gaya’, it’ll be almost after two years you’ll be returning back on screen with ‘Krrish’? 


A film like ‘Krrish’ demands your time and energy and all the while I was busy doing the film. But I was frequently doing commercials like John Players clothing and Hide & Seek biscuits. 



After being in the industry for about seven years now, how do you feel about it? 


The journey has been a mix of good and bad. After a good debut with ‘Kaho Na Pyaar Hai’, I faced poor results at the box office. But hit films like ‘Koi Mil Gaya’ and ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ kept me going and here with ‘Krrish’ I’m coming with my eleventh film. 



The ratio of flops in your career is more than hit films. 


I agree out of the ten films that I’ve done apart from three or four the rest were not hits. But they were not absolute flops too. Kaho Na Pyaar Hai’, ‘Koi Mil Gaya’ and ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ were hits. ‘Mission Kashmir’ did good business and ‘Fiza’ got a very good opening. But because of flops in a row like ‘Yaadein’, ‘Lakshya’ and ‘Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon’, the flops got more highlighted. 



You’re doing different variety of films. But don’t you think playing a villain in ‘Dhoom 2’ and doing periodic films like ‘Jodha-Akbar’ holds some risk too?


As an actor I need to grow. I need to explore different things. There is risk but there is excitement as well. I’m doing the roles to the best of my efforts and I hope people will love me in them.
