Hrithik Roshan: A Superhero Without The Cape
I remember the time when his movie “Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai” was released, the minute I saw Hrithik, I was like “Haan, mujhe pyaar hai!” It might sound cheesy but it’s true. I mean, look at him! No wonder he’s voted as the ‘Sexiest Asian Male’ of the decade! With those Greek God like looks, killer dancing skills and versatile acting, Hrithik has won us over.
But, like they say, diamonds don’t attain perfection early on. Metamorphosis is time consuming and people take time to shine. Hrithik Roshan, wasn’t always the boy who seemed like perfection. Like most of us, he also had his share of adversities to deal with.
Imagine, a child who wanted to be an actor struggled to speak while everyone else around him spoke fluently. It took a lot of speech therapy sessions and practice for him to be able to talk like everyone else.
After overcoming this obstacle, there was more in store. Seriously, everytime I overcome something, obstacles be like “Picture abhi baaki hai mere dost” but we do find a way to get inspired from celebrities like Hrithik Roshan.
He was also suggested not to take up acting as a profession, as it demanded a lot of physical strain on the spine. He also suffered injuries in the year 2010 and 2013, he did take a break but never gave up!
According to him, “If you are not rediscovering yourself and pushing boundaries, then you are not alive. Everybody wants to change something about their life, but they are either too afraid, too lazy, or too comfortable with 'the way things are'. That's not a natural state because nature is constantly evolving and urging us to follow suit”
He also penned down a poem for his son which is a classic example of #MyMarkMySignature moment.
"Darr se mat darr, kuch alag kar
6 ungliyon walaa kabhi kalakaar nahi ban paayega
darr tujhe ye samjhayega
par tu aatmavishwas dikhayega
tu darr se aankh milayega
darr se mat darr, darr ka saamna kar
aage bad, kuch alag kar
zindagi ke harr modd pe tujhe darr satayega
aur usi dard ka faayeda bina chuke ye darr uthayega
tujhse kahega ki tu aage kuch nahi kar paayega
par kya wo likhkar de paayega ki tu haar jaayega?
teri har kamzori par ye darr ghar banayega
par tu apna hunar dikhayega
usi kamzori ko tu apna taakat banaayega
aur uss din ye darr, tujhse darr jaayega
darr ka khel nidarr hoke khel
darr se mat darr, aage badd
bhula de darr. kuch alag kar..."
So, whenever I need some motivation, this poem is my go to! Be it the big screen or ads, epic dance moves or killer action scenes, Hrithik has done it all and has never failed to charm us with his charisma.
Now that you’ve got your dose of motivation, go ahead and “bhula de darr, kuch alag kar.”
