It may seem like an odd compliment to some but when Hrithik Roshan says his co-star Katrina Kaif works “like a man”, he only has praise in mind. The hit pair, who were seen in 2011 flick Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (ZNMD), will reunite for Siddharth Anand’s Bang Bang.
Talking about Katrina, Hrithik says, “I’m so excited about working with her again, after ZNMD. She works like a man. I respect the labour she puts into her work. We are here for work and glamour is something which just comes with it.”
The 39-year-old is equally thrilled about stepping into Tom Cruise’s shoes in this official remake of Hollywood action-comedy, Knight And Day (2010). “I’m excited about this film. It is something that I have never ventured into. We have a new, young and wise team,” he says.
Hrithik, who is right now tied up with the post production work of Krrish 3, also has interesting projects like Karan Malhotra’s Shuddhi and Shekhar Kapur’s Paani to look forward to. Talking about the former, he says, “Shuddhi will start after Bang Bang, sometime around January next year. I’m kicked about this project. Agneepath team — Karan Johar, Karan Malhotra and I will be back.”
After over a decade of making his way to the A-listers of Bollywood, Hrithik believes success comes when “dreams turn to challenges.” “Once you live enough of life, you realise that all those dreams that you are afraid of are only challenges. They will make you nervous, which is full of good energy. It is all of this that has got me where I am today,” says the actor who once used to stammer.
