Excerpts from the interview:
Simi:Are you a different Hrithik from the one who was here 5 years ago?
Hrithik: Not really, but of course there are changes, I have learnt a lot, learnt to accept a lot ... a lot of me, and the way I am, I am less awkward now, more of myself.
Simi:Today is the job getting easier or harder?
Hrithik: Easier for sure, until Koi Mil Gaya happened, there was this conditioned mindset of how a hero is supposed to be, and I was just trying to fit into that mould. That's not acting. It was during Koi Mil Gaya that I felt the true plight of an actor.
Simi: You met at the traffic light?
Sussanne: Actually, we just saw each other. It was a typical filmy scene.
Hrithik: Very filmy.
Sussanne: We were both parked parallel to each other, I just looked at him, he looked at me ..
Hrithik: The entire way from that place to our homes, our cars were chasing each other...
Sussanne: And we were pretending like we were not paying attention.
Simi:Hrithik, You never had a girlfriend before?
Hrithik: I had dates
Sussanne: Not serious .. he didn't have a girl friend .. girl friend ...
Hrithik: 4 days, 5 days and the girl was like, "I love you" ... and I was like, "dude, love doesn't happen this way."
Simi: He used to write a lot of poems?
Sussanne: He was a poet in the making, I am not joking.
Hrithik: Now, don't get there.
Sussanne: How many poems he has written, they were outstanding, he was only 21, and the poems that he had written as if he has lived his life.
Simi: Duggu, we know how much you had to overcome to become an actor, in what way was Sussanne part of that struggle?
Hrithik: Let's just say that if she wasn't there in my life, I would not have become an actor.
Simi: Your shy and known boy friend became an overnight phenomenon, a national craze? What did this do to you?
Sussanne: Oh my god, I was shocked, in the sense, I was totally overwhelmed, I couldn't believe that whatever I felt about him has come true and in such a big scale.
Simi: But what happens to the equation, when suddenly a person who is just yours, every woman wants him?
Sussanne: But I love that. It was the biggest high. I felt so proud and he knew that ... if you are going to get involved with an actor or a star, you can't get upset when he is being appreciated by other woman, take it as a compliment, because he loves you, it never made me feel insecure.
Simi: When did you decide that you wanted to marry her?
Hrithik: I knew that I could not live without her, I needed her and I wanted her, to be with her when I wake up in the morning, in my life and in my room and marriage was the only way I could get there.
