Hrithik's Perseverance


Friends, this is not my compilation. Found this on the net... Thought of sharing it here...

Hrithik Roshan, who had a speech impediment in the past, recently got the best compliment he could ever receive. There was a scene in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Guzaarish that required him to give a five and a half minuite long monologue which they were going to break into two minutes each. Hrithik however, surprised the team by delivering the entire monologue at one go. 

The scene was about Hrithik, before becoming paraplegic, remembering a women from his past. Sanjy had decided to break it into three parts so as to not pressurize Hrithik much. However, before Bhansali could call out 'Cut', Hrithik kept continuing and delivering the full dialogue intensely. His performance showed that he had worked really hard on rehearsing it. Bhansali walked up to him after the shot and was speechless. 

At first, Hrithik thought he hadn't done it properly. But he was stunned to hear Bhansali tell him that he was in Bachchan's league, referencing Hrithik's speech to Amitabh Bachchan's speech in Baghban. Hrithik was overwhelmed by the compliment as it shows that his hard work to overcome his stammer has paid off.

Great post, Harish. Yes, rehearsals can dramatically improve our performance.. When I was a child, I consciously avoided rehearsals (with DRAMATIC results!) because I had a strange faith that somehow some kind of miraculous fluency will help me in the final act..
It took me about 30 years to get out of that superstition..that mindset.
Good reminder.
