Hrithik Roshan, known for his dancing prowess, performed what he calls his career’s toughest dance sequence for Guzaarish. The actor, known as a hot bod of Indian showbiz for whom staying away from junk food is a way of life, also bent his fitness rules for the love story.

Hrithik, known as Bollywood’s best dancer who mesmerised his fans with his exotic moves in songs like Ek pal ka jeena, Main aisa kyun hoon and Idhar chala main udhar chala, says he had to work the hardest for a dance sequence in Guzaarish.

“There is a dance sequence for which I had to work the hardest in my life. Never worked so hard. For one month I trained for it. It’s not a long piece of dance, but the kind of dance it is, it’s very tough.”

Choreographer Ashley Lobo designed the moves.

“Ashley told me to take a three-time spin and then stand back straight. If you’re not used to dance, you can take four-five months to learn it, but I just had one month. All the steps are mostly jazz, ballet kinds. It’s a lot about the form, the stance, the spins – it’s the toughest thing I’ve tried,” said Hrithik.

“None of my songs, until now, have spins because that’s something I’m really bad at. If it’s a spin, it’s a half spin. This was the first time I tried a full one. It was also difficult because the entire song is with a ball in the hand. I’m playing with the ball and I’m also dancing,” he added.

The actor had to look fat for his role in the movie, and so had to pack on some pounds. “I didn’t workout for six-seven months. After 15 years, I found out the taste of batata vada and samosas. I binged like anything,” Hrithik told IANS in an interview.

“I had the liberty to have all the fried stuff because I had to look fat in some parts of the film. But when I was on this toxic programme, health took a very bad shape.”

All that hogging had a negative impact on his medical reports.

“For 15 years, I lived such a healthy life with a proper diet and workout. Then suddenly such a major shift, so my medical reports had gone crazy and the doctors were forcing me to stop it. But I enjoyed it because it was an excuse to eat whatever I wanted to,” added the 36-year-old actor.
