Hrithik was last seen in Kaabil


  • "Being a director requires internal calling," said Hrithik
  • I don't have that calling, he revealed
  • Hrithik's father Rakesh Roshan has directed and produced many movies
Actors are trying their hands at production and direction but actor Hrithik Roshan revealed that he doesn't want to direct films. The Agneepath actor, who recently gave a blockbuster hit, Kaabil, told news agency IANS that though he can formulate concepts but creating something from scratch is what he is unsure of. Hrithik, 43, was quoted by IANS as saying: "Being a director requires internal calling. I don't have that calling. People might say that I am very involved, I have ideas but having an idea about something, tweaking something or adding something is different from creating from scratch. I don't think I have that." Hrithik's father Rakesh Roshan is a Bollywood director who is famous for his Krrish installments.
Bollywood actors like Anushka Sharma, whose second production venture Phillauri also performed well at the box office, and Amir Khan, who has films like 3 Idiots, Dangal and PK under his production, have been successful in trying new verticals in the industry. Ajay Devgan has also directed and produced his last movie Shivaay.
Hrithik also talked about writing a book on his own journey. He shared that though he's not a good writer, he is planning to write his autobiography. "I have thought of it, but I am not a writer. I am still thinking of it," the actor was quoted by IANS as saying.
An Unsuitable Boy, Rekha: The Untold Story, Dilip Kumar: The Substance And The Shadow, and Khullam Khulla are some popular biographies of Bollywood celebrities. Also, reports suggest that Shah Rukh Khan is working on an autobiography.
Hrithik, who got divorced from wife Sussanne Khan on November 1, 2014, will next be seen in Krrish 4, which will be the fourth instalment of the Krrish franchise.
