Hrithik Roshan, one would expect after such a turbulent year, would have changed as a person. Once a happily married man, he was going through the emotional stress of a separation and divorce almost at the same time as having brain surgery. However, if you ask him whether he۪s transformed, he is adamant he hasn۪t.
Roshan spoke to Filmfare and divulged, I did what we all should do in a situation like that. I understand that adversity is the gym for the mind. So when you۪re going through an adversity, you have to tell yourself that this is a gym for my mental muscles. How do I make them strong? What can I do to change my environment? What are my resources? What can I use right now to fill myself up so much that I can be independently happy and not base my happiness on someone else? Once you ask those questions, you get the right answers and you۪ve to pen them down and start planting those seeds. It۪ll take time, you have to have patience. But soon the seeds will sprout and you۪ll be sitting in that wonderful garden of yours, with all the blossomed flowers around you.
Talking about dealing with being separated from Sussanne and recovering from life-threatening brain surgery at the same time, Roshan said, They told me I wouldn۪t be able to work because of my surgery and because of the emotional stress I was going through because of the separation. (Pauses) It۪s a fate worse than death. It۪s worse than losing someone to death. Because in death you find a sense of closure. You know the person you love has died with love in his/her heart for you. But a separation is an entirely different kind of adversity_
Roshan also spoke about the success of his last offering Bang Bang۪ (2014) which went against the critics, My objective has been achieved. So it۪s okay if I haven۪t been able to please every single person in the world. You can۪t please everyone anyway. You respect their opinion. But you have to remember that an opinion is an opinion. It۪s not the truth. My truth is what I live by. So I۪m happy.
He is going to be seen in Ashutosh Gowariker۪s Mohenjo Daro۪ next. Aboutt he project, Roshan stated, It۪ll be fun because I enjoy doing things that aren۪t conventional. When I signed Bang Bang!, it wasn۪t something that was expected out of me. I love surprising myself and my audience. And Ashutosh Gowariker۪s Mohenjo Daro is going to be a fantastic surprise.
