On Thursday, 15th July, the movie Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara marks its 10 years. Hrithik Roshan shares how the film empowered him. Read below to know.
The movie Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara featured cast members such as Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol, Katrina Kaif, and Kalki Koechlin in prominent roles. The movie was helmed by ace filmmaker Zoya Akhtar.
Hrithik Roshan in conversation with Etimes said that “I would love to do another film like this where it’s with friends and it’s an ensemble. I remember when I signed this film on, a lot of my father’s friends were very concerned about me, out of sheer love for me. They thought I was making a big mistake, because I was playing one of the parts among three characters and it was certainly not the central character.”
Hrithik further added that “It wasn’t like I was the hero of the film and Farhan and Abhay were small parts of the film. The general rule at that time was that you have to uphold the star status, and I knew this film was talking about exactly the opposite. It kind of empowered me because it’s a story that I believed in, and I thought, ‘to hell with the status’, which is merely something that people give you.
“The work that you do is something that comes out of your own desire. That’s where another seed got planted in my mind about ensemble films. It’s what we don’t get to see much. Not being confined by my position in the film, or the need to remain protected, here letting go was such a beautiful feeling. I think that seed grew into me wanting to do other such films when other actors were hesitant. I love doing two-hero, three-hero, four-hero films… the more, the merrier,” The actor concluded.
The Director of the movie, Zoya Akhtar remembers this creation and shares a picture of the blue convertible car, which is considered as one of the highlights of the movie. She wrote in Instagram caption as “Time To Take The Car Out Again #znmd #10years #blueconvertible #spanishsky #ontheroad #onlyhappymemories #wheredidthetimego Thank You to the best Cast and Crew EVAH!” ‘The Greek God of Bollywood’ reacts in the comment section as “Hahaha yeah baby !” with the heart Emoji.
