Bollywood heartthrob Hrithik Roshan, who has just wrapped up Agneepath, a remake of megastar Amitabh Bachchan's iconic movie by the same name, says there is no comparison between him and the legend as it was "just another film" for him.
"In my mind, there are no comparisons, because Agneepath for me, is just another film," he said when asked if he was prepared for the inevitable comparisons when the Karan Johar film releases on January 13, 2012.
"There's no manipulation and calculation. I reacted to the script instinctively and related to it without a thought for the original Agneepath. And there is no effort to do things differently, but just convincingly," he said.
Hrithik returned from a month-long schedule of Agneepath in Diu, before leaving for promotions of his upcoming release Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.
"I don't think I have worked this hard in my entire life...I feel like I have been steamrolled, I must be getting old," he said.
Hrithik recalled his gruelling schedule, where action sequences were shot on rocky mountainous terrain.
"I was dragged on my back and chest. I had ice packs on my knees and elbows and returned home black and blue. I have a zillion scratches and bruises on my stomach," the 37-year-old actor said.
However, there is a satisfaction of having canned some incredible stunts, he said. "It's this passion for good cinema that drives you to take all this pressure and pain," he said.
