'Agneepath' vs. 'Krissh 3': Hrithik
It was after long that actor Hrithik Roshan returned to the action genre when he opened his innings at the BO this year with the blockbuster 'Agneepath'. The actor himself admits to having missed not having done it in a long while till 'Agneepath' happened. So is he making up for all the lost action by pushing the envelope further with the Krissh installment?
"I see it as pushing the envelope as an actor, not in a particular genre though," he says.
Explaining further, he adds, "The action in 'Agneepath' and 'Krissh' is far different from each other. It's like having two genres of action itself. 'Agneepath' was like raw fury unleashed, in terms of hand combat and man-to-man action. It was realistic. 'Krissh', I think is more of stunts and much more daredevilry and dependent on the camera work than just pure display of physical power. So, in that way I don't think it's taking action further from 'Agneepath' as such, just taking action in a different direction altogether and taking it higher literally."
However, the actor doesn't deny that 'Krissh 3' might just set the bar higher for action films overall.
"I'm not looking at beating anyone in the genre, but yes, I want the audience to enjoy every minute of the film's action. I've always said that I only want to better myself and my aim's not beating others at the BO. So all I'm trying to do is push the envelope from where I'd last left it," adds Hrithik.
The actor also waves off all buzz of there being a doctor on sets at all times to attend to Hrithik's bad back. "I've been through hell all the months that I suffered for my back pain, but this time around I made sure that I am 100 per cent okay before I take on any action. If there's one thing that doing action in all these years has taught me is that no one should ever take their bodies for granted and despite all the flying and kicking around, my back is well-taken care of," says Hrithik. "I am still pushing my body, but doing it the right way this time," he says.
