Mumbai: Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan, who has played myriad roles in his 12-year-long career, giving extraordinary performances in various movies, still feels that he is a bad actor.
The actor played an aspiring singer in his debut film, `Kaho Na Pyaar Hai` and went on to essay roles of a challenged boy in `Koi Mil Gaya`, a superhero in `Krrish`, a Mughal emperor in `Jodha Akbar`, a conman in `Dhoom`, a quadriplegic in `Guzaarish` and a workaholic in `Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara`, taking everyone by surprise with his power-packed acts. But he thinks he is lacking even today.
"I feel I am a very bad actor. My premise is that I can act well only when I am in a character. I have to know everything about the character so if I am not living I can?t act it. I have to be that person... if I am not the person then I will be doing bad acting," Hrithik said.
The 38-year-old also said that he can`t imitate anyone.
"If you ask me to imitate I can`t do it. Some may do it as they have talent. I get into the character completely then only I can act. I try to understand the character and then do it," he said.
He started his Bollywood career with a bang but the later releases could not ape the success of his debut movie `Kaho Na Pyaar Hai`.
"It was January 14, 2000 when my first film as an actor was released. I have completed 12 years in the industry...I am so happy about it. I feel 12 years have not ended...not passed but its still a new beginning. It feels really nice when I think about the blessings. I really feel I am blessed," Hrithik said.
In Karan Johar`s remake of `Agneepath` he is reprising the role of Vijay Dinanath Chauhan, earlier played by Amitabh Bachchan.
The film also featuring Sanjay Dutt, Priyanka Chopra, Rishi Kapoor in pivotal roles is up for release on January 26.
