Films made with honesty cross language barriers: Hrithik

Hrithik Roshan and Barbara Mori"Of course, I want to dance and do all the things that made me what I am today. But, I want to do that with honesty. 'Dhoom 2' was an honest film. It promised fun, action and item numbers. It was a film which you could sit back and enjoy with your popcorn. Where as 'Kites' is a slice of life...real and intense. You cannot put 'Dhoom' songs in the story track," Hrithik told PTI.

To a question on whether 'Kites', which releases on May 21, wil open frontiers for him beyond Bollywood, Hrithik said, "That's not my call. I react to scripts."

"Every film has its own destiny no matter where it has been made," he said.
Hrithik felt that Indian films do not find takers at the international level because Indians are conditioned in their mindsets to repeat past successes.

"We use songs as a way of garnering an initial for a film even if it does not fit into the scheme of things and the world that the film is supposed to be in. We are very happy in our little pond and we know what works here and what does not. This is very commercially manipulated and those are not the kind of films I would want to do anymore," the 36-year-old actor said."The film is a simple, straight forward love story. My character is a guy born and brought up in Las Vegas and if he meets a foreigner, he will use English. If he starts speaking in Hindi then it is commercially manipulated. We should be unafraid to make an honest film as it will find its own level," he said.

The 36-year-old actor said working with Mexican actress Barbara Mori was an enlightening experience.

"She comes from a different school of thought. But, the approach to art is same. I had to ask questions that never occurred to me earlier," he said.On why he does few films, Hrithik said every creative person has to follow his own pace.

"A creative person cannot calculate and manipulate his creativity. If an actor starts thinking from his mind, creativity will suffer," he said.According to Hrithik, he is on a mission to find out his true potentials and he is doing it at his own pace.

"Krrish gave people the confidence to think that more super hero movies can be made here. Earlier the concept was non-existent. Dad and I were challenged to raise the bar," he said.

On his character in Kites, he said, "I play a street smart guy...he is a loner, living a hand to mouth existence. His mission in life is to become rich as he believes money will end all his sufferings."
