Current Bollywood News: Hrithik Roshan plump avtaar in Guzaarish

Hrithik Roshan has proved himself time and again with his sheer dedication to all his characters that he has played on-screen till date. He is definitely a star by carving a niche for himself with each of his films and portraying his character with a perfect ‘T’.

Right from his debut film Kaho Na Pyar Hai to Lakshya and Krissh, he has proved his mettle as being one thoroughbred performer. So has he done with his upcoming release. Keeping his perfection intact in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Guzaarish, Hrithik Roshan has slogged day and night to fit into the character of the magician that he plays in the film.

He actually ceased all his physical exercises and gym sessions for a couple of months at a stretch before shooting started. Well, you must be guessing that that why would health conscious man like Hrithik Roshan do that for? The answer to it is that since he plays the role of a magician in the film, who suddenly develops a disease and gets paralyzed, he was supposed to look the character by putting on a lot of weight.

This was definitely not an easy task for him. Hrithik who is admired for his toned physique has actually put in a lot of efforts to gain weight for the film. Amusingly the star had to eat and drink everything that a top rated star is not expected to eat like vada pau (fried cutlet and bread), samosa etc for months together.

However, this was a treat for him as he got a chance to relish all these foods to his hearts content as he must not have tasted them for years despite loving them so much. This role of a paraplegic gave him an excuse to just gorge on every bit of food that he could lay his hands on. Thus we get to see a plump Hrithik in the film.

The movie releases on the 19th of November.
