Film-maker Ashutosh Gowariker, who has cast Hrithik Roshan for the lead role in his upcoming period drama, says that the actor has a striking disposition that is best suited for his film. “Hrithik has a larger-than-life personality. Be it the role of a superhero or Akbar, he plays it to perfection, and makes the film look believable,” says Gowariker.
The film-maker, who started his career as an actor on TV, says he would love to make a comeback to acting if he gets the time. “I would love to [act again]. I really enjoyed acting. But direction is a very demanding job. Balancing both is difficult. I don’t allow anything to distract me,” he says.

Gowariker is also producing an upcoming show on TV — about a girl who decides to climb Mount Everest. Giving details about the show, he says, “I got the ­freedom to tell a story [through this show]. It will be a new concept for the audience. It has both drama and adventure.”
