Actor Hrithik Roshan stunned his fans when he announced in 2013 that he and his wife of 13 years, Sussanne Khan, were separating. The couple divorced last year. Known to be reticent, Hrithik never spoke about the divorce or his life as a single man. Now, for the first time, the 41-year-old speaks about his bachelorhood.
How is bachelorhood treating you?
Well, nothing much has changed in that sense (smiles). But I am enjoying that. Aur kya boloon main (what else should I say)?
You recently moved into a house that many are calling your bachelor pad.
I don’t want to say much, but it’s fantastic. I am loving it (smiles).
On the work front, you have been busy with director Ashutosh Gowariker’s next for a long time now.
Yes, it is taking time, but we are having a great time working on it. We are making a great film, and I am extremely proud of it. I am enjoying working with Ashutosh for the second time (after Jodhaa Akbar; 2008). The rest is for everyone to see, how it takes shape eventually. But I think it’s a great film.
Have you signed any other film?
Well, all I can say is there will be two-three new announcements very soon.
Are you doing director Sanjay Gupta’s next film?
It’s not finalised yet. I haven’t signed the film, but we are in talks.
The back injury that you had sustained during the shoot of Agneepath (2012) gave you trouble recently. How is your back now?
It’s absolutely perfect. It was bad, but sometimes through the bad, something amazing happens. Through this bad, I have found a way to make my back the strongest it has ever been. I don’t think I will ever have an issue with any part of my body again. The kind of things I have learnt is amazing. I found a good doctor, so I am all good and sorted now.
Besides the brain surgery you underwent in 2013, you’ve had a few other injuries too?
You learn (in situations like these) how to be patient, creative, and not to waste your time sitting and wondering. Instead, you should keep moving. Things ultimately settle down, and the body heals itself. Plus, as long as your mind is healthy and creative, and you stay focused on things that you are enthusiastic about, even if you are in bed, your body will heal.
