Actor Hrithik Roshan has recently opened up about dealing with mental stress during the shooting of his film ‘War’ which saw him in an action-packed avatar. During his recent appearance on a podcast with fitness trainer Kris Gethin, Hrithik revealed he was almost on the verge of depression and was completely lost after the release of the film. He stated he thought he was dying while doing War as he felt he wasn’t prepared for the film and was up against a really big challenge. This explosive revelation of Hrithik has left everyone shocked!
Talking about how the film took a toll on his mental and physical health, the Krrish actor said, “I feel as light and as fast as our last transformation. I thought I was dying when I was doing War. I wasn’t prepared for the film and I was up against a really big challenge. I was trying to achieve perfection for which I wasn’t ready. After the film, I went into adrenaline fatigue. For 3-4 months, I couldn’t train, and wasn’t feeling good. I was almost on the verge of depression. I was completely lost and that’s when I knew I needed to make a change in my life.” ALSO READ: Hrithik Roshan Gets TROLLED As He Returns Mumbai With Saba Azad And Kids From Vacation; Netizen Says, 'Gf Bas Thodi Hi Badi Hai Iske Bacho Se’
The 48-year-old actor went on to explain that it all boiled down to him not living the kind of life he should have – health and body-wise. “Somewhere along the way, I started feeling that it is okay to relax. I have to remember that even when I am playing characters like a visually-impaired man (in Kaabil), or a school teacher (Super 30), I cannot no longer let go of the lifestyle I have. This is not a transformation for the film. This is me trying to find the lifestyle that I maintain for the rest of my life. It is for longevity,” Hrithik further asserted.
For ‘War’, the actor had undergone a drastic physical transformation and showed off his ripped abs and toned physique in the film. Siddharth Anand’s directorial also starred Tiger Shroff and was a commercial success grossing over Rs 475 crore, thus becoming the highest-grossing Indian film of 2019 and one of the highest-grossing Indian films of all time.
Hrithik will next be seen in the upcoming movie ‘Fighter’ with Deepika Padukone.
