Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali was convinced right from the beginning that Hrithik could enact the character of Ethan perfectly. But when Hrithik was informed about the film and the character, he was a bit skeptical. Why?
The fact was that the star was not quite sure of playing a character restricted to a wheel chair due to physical disability. Hrithik was not sure whether he would be able to do justice to the role. The basic storyline of the film was different from all the roles that he had been portraying so far on the silver screen.
Things changed for the better the moment Sanjay Leela Bhansali read out the script to him. The deep feelings that were incorporated in each scene by the sensitive director and the delicate issue to be handled in the film moved Hrithik.
So impressed was Hrithik by the entire content and the deep characterization of the protagonist that he immediately said yes.
Well, the results are there for all to see through the promos. The actual accolades will come to Hrithik only after the film releases today.
