'I really loved Rang De Basanti'

Hrithik Roshan in an exclusive interview to

In retrospect do you think that in working with your dad perhaps you won't feel shortchanged like you have been by some directors?

I don't think it's fair to compare directors or compare talent. Everybody is talented. My father himself has given a number of flops, so good films and bad films are a part of life.

So far it so happened that my better films were the ones I did with my dad. It just looks that way -- that my dad makes the best films for me. If that is the consequence of the love that he has for me then it is something to learn for other directors -- to love your actors like your sons. Because that will only amount to a better film.

I keep hearing this that -- 'it's your dad who takes out the best in you, is that because he is your dad and loves you so much' -- it's almost as if you are trying to discount my talent.

On the contrary if it is the film that makes me stand out and becomes historical hits, I'll say well tell the other directors to love their actors like their sons. If that condones a good product then that's what should be done.

You worked with Priyanka Chopra for the first time, what struck you about working with her?

She is a natural in front of the camera and is very unassuming. She is very much the person she is, she's not a fake. It's a combination of her talent and the person that she is.

She is also a person who looks at the big picture and is not only concerned about her own close ups. She is not only involved with what she's supposed to do in the film but looks at her work with the perspective of the entire film which is the work of a serious actor.

Any recent films that have stood out in your mind?

Unfortunately in this past year I haven't seen any films. The last film that I saw which struck a chord in me was Rang De Basanti. I really loved the film.

You were meant to be doing that film.

Yes, but unfortunately or fortunately I was doing Krrish and couldn't get the dates out.
