Hrithik Roshan is excited and escatic currently and we don"t blame him. After a long gap, the actor has had two big hits back-to-back, Super 30 and War. Two extremely different characters, yet nailed to perfection, Hrithik has impressed the audience with his acting chops and his on-point looks and we can"t help but appreciate the actor"s efforts too. In a recent chat with Filmfare, the actor opened up about how he thinks the audience has evolved over the years and why he feels that it is a great time to be in movies.
Talking about content being the king in the industry now, he said, 'I am happy. It gives a lot of scope to actors and directors. It relaxes the maker because he knows it"s the content and the story that will work and not the star. I"ve always looked for a script that touches me. A decade ago, Super 30 might not have done 10 per cent of the business that it did now. So times have changed. It"s all for the better.'
He further spoke about this shift in the industry and living through both the phases, he said, 'Honestly, I am happier in this phase. Today, the audience doesn"t want the ideal. They want the truth.'
Hrithik also threw some light on the kind of movies he"d like to do from now on. Talking about choosing content driven movies, he said, 'Whatever I do now, even if it is a film like War, it"s got to be real. It has to be convincing. Today you can"t sell a character on the star"s name. The character has to stand supported by a realistic script. It"s a fantastic time to be in the movies. Content is the star of the film. We"ll get to see better films and not just the commercial masala cinema, which I believe is now history. I guess that will not work anymore.'
