As a decade went by Hrithik got used to the complexities of show business and learnt to take each day and film as it came. He said he had understood there is nothing perfect in life and all one has to do is to give the best shot in whatever you do be it home or work. “When I was assisting my dad on his films, I thought all my problems would end the day I got a break in films. Little did I know that the day dad launched me was the beginning of my struggle. Now I have to constantly watch myself, because every time I fail, I am letting down my fans. I know I cannot succeed every time but I must have the satisfaction of giving my best’.
And that is something all his filmmakers will vouch for. His father Rakesh Roshan, Zoya Akhtar and director Ashutosh Gowariker who said he built special relationships with everyone associated in the film including the elephant in Jodha Akbar. Gowariker said Hrithik addressed the elephant like a beloved and wore the same perfume so that the animal remembered his aroma, as a result when we had to shoot them together, they were well synchronized.
