In his 12-year-long career, Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan has played myriad roles like an aspiring singer in his debut film Kaho Na Pyaar Hai, a challenged boy in Koi Mil Gaya, a superhero in Krrish, a Mughal emperor in Jodha Akbar, a conman in Dhoom, a quadriplegic in Guzaarish and a workaholic in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Despite taking everyone by surprise with his power-packed acts, he still feels that he is a bad actor.

In an interview to PTI, Hrithik Roshan says that he thinks he is lacking even today. "I feel I am a very bad actor. My premise is that I can act well only when I am in a character. I have to know everything about the character so if I am not living I can't act it. I have to be that person... if I am not the person then I will be doing bad acting," PTI quotes him as saying.

Hrithik also admitted that he can't imitate anyone. "If you ask me to imitate I can't do it. Some may do it as they have talent. I get into the character completely then only I can act. I try to understand the character and then do it," he said.

In his initials days, he rocked at the box office, but he could not repeat the same with his later releases. Hrithik Roshan said, “It was January 14, 2000 when my first film as an actor was released. I have completed 12 years in the industry...I am so happy about it. I feel 12 years have not ended, not passed but its still a new beginning. It feels really nice when I think about the blessings. I really feel I am blessed."

However, Karan Johar's latest movie is a remake of Agneepath and Hrithik Roshan is reprising the role of Vijay Dinanath Chauhan, which was originally played by Amitabh Bachchan. The film also features Sanjay Dutt, Priyanka Chopra, Rishi Kapoor in pivotal roles. The film is up for release on January 26.
