Endorsing a film, right after one has undergone a complicated brain surgery, can be torturous for a hero, not for a superhero.
Hrithik Roshan, Bollywood's first superhero, has gone to prove what stuff the superheroes are made of.
Despite the pain, the actor stepped out of his home to promote his film “Krrish 3”.
"I do get the occasional headache, but overall my health is much better," he says smilingly. "I'm in a happy frame of my mind, and I cannot wait to unveil the first look of Krrish 3," the buoyant actor said.
Apparently, Hrithik Roshan, who plays triple role in the movie, has donned three different looks for each of his character. Talking about it, Hrithik says that the film has been a fairly challenging one.
"The Rohit look was very difficult to attain. Koi Mil Gaya released in 2003, so we needed the character to look aged."
Apparently, Hrithik took nearly four and half hours everyday to get ready for those scenes with his prosthetic expert. "Mike Stringer (best known for Lord of the Rings trilogy) was flown in to do the makeup and prosthetics. He was present for two schedules," he says.
In fact, Stringer had multiple screenings of Koi Mil Gaya and tried out several looks before they took a final call. "Rohit's character will continue to have child like qualities, but he will also look like a father (to Krishna). I had to balance that out. And importantly, that character wants to make everyone around him happy. So that element had to be retained," Hrithik says.
And for Krrish, the superhero? "The mask which is based on Krishna's chakra is a slightly enhanced version of the original," explains the actor. "I had to modulate my voice in three different styles, but the final product looks pretty good," he concludes.
