Hrithik Roshan likes to prepare for his roles and there are no half measures for him when it comes to getting into the universe of the character that he is supposed to play. He delves into complex characters with a hunger because those are the ones that challenge him. Whether it is Rohit Mehra in Koi Mil Gaya or Ethan Mascarenhas in Guzaarish, when the character is nuanced, Hrithik is game.
In his next film Kaabil, Hrithik plays a blind man, whose life is blissed out till a certain untoward incident throws it off-gear. Knowing that walking, talking and dancing like a visually-impaired person was going to be a tough challenge, Hrithik who believes in internalizing the role, booked himself a room in a five-star hotel in Juhu, locking the world out. He didn’t meet anyone during this period.
Before the shooting of the other movies too, Hrithik cut himself off from the outside world to prep for his role. The actor who essays the role of a blind man in this one is on a mission to prove ability in his disability. He went underground so as to immerse himself in the mind of his screen character. Such dedication is bound to yield results. Like they say, the wait for Kaabil is well worth it.
Also starring Yami Gautam, Kaabil directed by Sanjay Gupta, is slated to release on January 25.
