"In my mind, there are no comparisons, because Agneepath for me, is just another film," he said when asked if he was prepared for the inevitable comparisons with Big B when this Karan Johar remake releases on January 13, 2012. "There's no manipulation and calculation. I reacted to the script instinctively and related to it without a thought for the original Agneepath. And there is no effort to do things differently, but just convincingly," Hrithik added.
Before starting off for the promotions of his upcoming release Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Hrithik recalled his gruelling schedule with action sequence shot on rocky mountains. “I don't think I have worked this hard in my entire life...I feel like I have been steamrolled, I must be getting old," he continued, "I was dragged on my back and chest. I had ice packs on my knees and elbows and returned home black and blue. I have a zillion scratches and bruises on my stomach."
Hrithik is satisfied for being able to can some incredible stunts. "It's this passion for good cinema that drives you to take all this pressure and pain," he said. Taking 'Just Dance' very seriously, Hrithik let his hair down at the wrap-up party of the show in Diu. "I threw my hands and legs around and just let myself go. I must have looked stupid but it was a liberating feeling to be finished with the action. And soon, the rest of the crew and cast were taking a cue from me and joining in. It is about celebrating the little moments in life and enjoying them without inhibition," he told.
Talking about Amitabh Bachchan, Hrithik showed his excitement about the veteran's recent release Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap. "I have just seen the promos and they took me back to the time, when I was 12 years old and Amit uncle was doing films like Deewar, Hum and Shahenshah. The film is a treat for Bachchan fans and I am one of them," Hrithik told.
