So how was the actor feeling ?
“I am good,” came the answer.
Well, maybe not on top of the world but getting there, as he delved into the philosophy of his brand HRX, saying the X factor was the lengths to which he could go to empower himself and people around him.
The actor said that a lot had happened in his life lately – injuries, emotional upheaval.
“I take full responsibility about whatever is happening in my life, instead of blaming people and circumstances. I have had to realize it’s about me. Yes, there are times when the possibility of a good future seems impossible, but I realize one has to get I with it!
Empower yourself. Coax your mind into believing you can! Give it your best shot. Today my weakness has become my biggest strength. When I connect the dots, it all makes sense. No one gives a shit about what’s happening in your life. You have to overcome the challenges of the past what if something monstrous lies ahead I have to keep moving forward and that’s what my brand is about, living the best life you can. You owe it to yourself,” Hrithik said.
When asked about how the past year’s injuries and his divorce happened together and how he was holding up, Hrithik’s response was from the heart.
“What can I say, what can I do? When it happens to someone you can give advice, when it happens to you, you got to face it. Someday, I will have answers. At the moment, there are just questions. I have lost sense of objectivity. But the worst you can do is blame yourself with the dreaded ‘why me?’ Never do that. Face the challenge,” was the actor’s response.
Saying he had a fabulous birthday with his sons on a yacht, the man who the Khans also fear as competition said, “I love competition. Yes, there are times when I don’t want to surface from bed but I tell the Almighty ‘Ok, bring it on. What do you want me to face today, what challenge is coming my way?'”
With his back on the mend, the actor said he was looking forward to the tough action scenes in Bang Bang and in life as well too.
Well, all we can say to this superhero is may the force be with you.
