Hrithik Roshan plays the character of a blind man in his upcoming flick Kaabil and was in contact with a lot of visually impaired people to learn their mannerisms and observe their lifestyle closely. Hrithik has been bowled over by their lifestyle and is impressed with them as they are always happy.
The Kaabil star Hrithik Roshan was quoted as saying, "This fan even took a selfie with me, and I found it sweet that he smoothened his hair and then smiled for the camera. I learnt so much by spending time with them. They are happy people. There is nothing bechara about them. And they don't liked to be viewed like that. They go about their lives, just like us. During my research for the film, I heard of blind bodybuilders, lawyers, teachers, accountants, etc. And they do it all effortlessly. Observing them and spending time with them, helped me prepare for the role."
A source close to the actor quipped as, "This one is extra-special because playing a visually impaired character was a new experience for him. He spent a lot of time with people who were blind since birth and with those who lost their eyesight as children. Meeting them really moved him. In fact, he was surprised when one of them said that he was a fan of Hrithik because he couldn't understand how someone who has never seen him, can be a fan."
