hrithik roshan in guzaarish movie

Hrithik Roshan had worked hard for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Guzaarish", but it didn't work out at the box office. The star says that if they had shown "some happiness, my body and abs", it would have worked.

"Each film has a scene which has its own level. Had I set a balance in 'Guzaarish' then it would have worked. Finally it's a business, but if we had a balance in the emotions it would have worked," said Hrithik, who is right now looking forward to his forthcoming film "Agneepath".

"If we would have shown some happiness, my body, biceps and abs in my younger days, it would have made a difference. Maybe we missed out on that," added the Bollywood heartthrob who played a paraplegic patient in the movie.

Released in 2010, "Guzaarish" deals with the sensitive issue of euthanasia and even won critical acclaim, but it couldn't set the cash registers ringing.

The film's box office fate notwithstanding, Hrithik says Ethan, his character in "Guzaarish", will always be close to his heart.

"I agree with Ethan to a large extent. He did not want to die. He has written books, he is a radio jockey... so after living his life, now he wants to die with his eyes open," said Hrithik who recently turned 38.

What makes him happy is that people still talk about the movie, he said.

"After six months, when I met people and when they said that they saw the film on DVD later, they say why didn't we see this film when it was released... After all this, I feel we missed out on the balance. May be, if we had some balance in the promotions, it would have clicked," he said.

    All I ll say is... Guzaarish was one more masterpiece from SLB:) Hrithik portrayed the character of Ethan beautifully!

    Yes the mass probably wanted to see what Hrithik is stating here... but the story did not require it & I personally loved the movie. The movie was about Ethan after he suffered from his accident and it was beautifully done!

    Admire Sanjay Sir for bringing such a beautiful masterpiece to us! Khamoshi, HDDCS, Devdas, Black, Saawariya...are all my fav's too!

    I Completely disagree with Hirthik on this one. The Film is among one of my most favourites, in my opioinion it had the right amount of emotion and story. Everything was depicted beautifully. I am 17 year old girl and i would have rather see him in the character depicted than some "hot guy" showing his body around. Why doesn't bollywood understand that item girls, rap songs, showing skin is NOT what is seen as progress? People who go to watch movies like dhoom with illlogical and a poor story rather than a sensible film like Guzaarish with great acting and story telling suck. Bollywood has become a shit hole with crap films with meaningless stories. Bring back movies such as Devdas, Veer-Zara HDCCS, Mohbattein etc.
