'Beating someone at the BO? not my goal!'
With two back-to-back superhits under his belt, or rather cape, one would expect actor Hrithik Roshan to be on a film signing spree. But the star, who's at present shooting for the sequel of 'Krrish', says that he is not planning to sign any film till August. "I've been working non-stop these past months and once I wrap up 'Krrish 2', I just hope to take it a little easy. I am not looking at signing any film right away," he says.
As for his last release 'Agneepath' that's created a history of sorts, by crossing Rs 125 crore, Hrithik agrees that it's gone beyond expectations. "History used to be my worst subject in school, it's suddenly become my favourite now that 'Agneepath' has created it!" he exclaims. Talking about the risk back then, he adds, "It's weird because up until the release of the film, I really didn't fathom what we were up against! I really didn't realise the extent of the risk we had taken and what we would stand to lose if it had not worked." The fear was however non-existent through the making of the film for both him and the director Karan Malhotra, reveals Hrithik.
In retrospect now we agree that it was because of the script which had totally engulfed us as artistes leaving no room for any other emotion to fester. We gave it our heart," he says.
As for his return to the caped crusader franchisee 'Krrish', though Hrithik admits that there are higher expectations this time around, he explains that he doesn't let that pressure get to him. "I just want to give in better than my best always, not only for this film, but I do it for all of my films." And though he doesn't deny that everyone is competition, he says that he looks at competition only as an inspiration to do better. "I don't let myself get under the pressure to beat someone at the BO. That's not my goal. I believe that the real fight is with your own self. Like I said, all I want to do is try to better myself, that's all," he smiles.
