  • 'Good looks should not become part of your internal character,' he said
Actor Hrithik Roshan says he is yet to like any Hollywood project offered to him, and that a good script will always be his priority while selecting projects. Hrithik is the star of films like Krrish, Dhoom 2, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobaraand Bang Bang!. The 42-year-old actor was last seen in Mohenjo Daro, which did fairly well at the box office. He will next be seen in crime-thriller Kaabil, which also stars Yami Gautam. Excerpts from an interview with the Lakshya actor, who was recently elected the third most handsome face in the world by a global online survey on
Q: What does it feel like to be chosen the third most handsome man in the world next only to Hollywood stars Tom Cruise and Robert Pattinson?
A: Well, handsome is as handsome does. I am honoured, of course. I told my sons to remember to always thank people for compliments. This is a compliment, not an achievement.

Q: Flattered?
A: Good looks should never become a part of your internal character. To not care about how you look will make you look even more attractive.
Q: It is an incredible honour for our entertainment industry. Do you agree?
A: To be counted in the world's top 10 of anything I guess gets eyeballs, so in that regard, yes. It's good.
Q: With your international looks, why are you not doing films in Hollywood?
A: I haven't liked anything yet. It's not about Hollywood. It's always about a good script for me.

Life is good. No matter how you see it, there is always something good happening. The magic is in your perception.

Q: How do you react to compliments about your looks?
A: I react to them like one should react to a compliment. I smile and say, thank you. Neither do I reject it, nor revel in it.
Q: Incredibly you have beaten the myth that good looking people can't act. Your comments?
A: Every single good actor has broken that myth. Mr Dilip Kumar, Mr Amitabh Bachchan, Marlon Brando and Brad Pitt are lookers and shakers. Being attractive in life is not something as static as a single frame in a picture.

Q: What, according to you, is the hallmark of handsomeness?
A: What makes you good looking is how you are expressing yourself and that comes from how you are interpreting life.
