Actress Yami Gautam, who is sharing screen space with superstar Hrithik Roshan in the forthcoming film Kaabil, said he is one of the most hardworking and selfless actors she has ever worked with.
Talking about her experience of working with Hrithik, Yami told IANS here: “He (Hrithik) is such a selfless actor. We actors always work hard for our good performance, but he is concerned about the whole scene, including the performance of his co-actors, dancers and everyone.
“There were scenes where he would give a retake even though he was perfect, but I wanted to improvise something. He is an actor and works for the totality of the scene.”
According to Yami, Hrithik, who is known for his good looks and larger than life personality, is otherwise a very humble person.
“Whether it is on set or off the camera, he never made you feel that he is a star. He is a happy-go-lucky person and on set, he is an actor. That’s why I call him a truly inspirational personality,” Yami said.
Yami says the superstar is unaware of the tags given to him and is a simple person in real life. “Hrithik has been given tags like Greek God, Superstar, God of Dance etc but he is unaware of these tags. He is a simple person who wants to give his best and help others also get their best in the most selfless way. I am not that generous. He is very inspiring,” Yami told.
The actress also says she was nervous to work with Hrithik onn the romantic film. “I have never met Hrithik socially so when I first met him on sets I told him,’Hi, I am nervous’, to which he said, ‘Hi, I am also so very nervous’. He said ‘glad you said it, I am so relieved.’ He said, ‘it’s good to be nervous’.”
Yami is thankful to co-star Hrithik, director Sanjay Gupta and producer Rakesh Roshan for having faith in her. The film is set to open in theatres on January 25.
