November 12, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): Hrithik Roshan is one of those dedicated stars of Bollywood who would go to any length to portray his characters on screen in the correct manner. This star has set a record with every film of his by looking the character he portrays to a perfect ‘T’.

Right from his debut film Kaho Na Pyar Hai to Lakshya to Krissh, this actor has proved his mettle as being one thoroughbred star. Thus, in keeping his perfection intact even in his forth coming flick Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Guzaarish, Hrithik Roshan has reportedly worked a lot in order to bring himself into the character.

So what exactly did he do for this flick? Well he just gave up on all the physical exercises and the gym for many months at a stretch just before shooting started.

Now why did he do that? The answer is that since in this flick he plays the role of a magician who suddenly develops a disease and gets paralyzed, he was supposed to look the character by putting on a lot of weight.

As Hrithik maintained a very lean and slim physique always, he had to put in a lot of effort to put on weight. So how did he manage to put on so much weight in just a few months? Well the answer to this question is quite amusing. Reportedly the star had to eat and drink everything that was considered a no no for a top rated star. That means he had to eat street food like vada pau(fried cutlet and bread), samosa etc for months.

Of course the star was having a gala time and relishing all the food that he had not tasted for years despite loving it a lot. This role of a paraplegic gave him an excuse to just gorge on every bit of food that he could lay his hands on. Thus in the film the Hrithik that will be seen is quite a plumpy avatar of his original self.

The movie releases on the 19th of November.
