Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan is currently enjoying the success of his latest film 'Fighter', directed by Siddharth Anand. The film, which also stars Deepika Padukone, Anil Kapoor, Akshay Oberoi, Karan Singh Grover, and Sanjeeda Shaikh, is expected to surpass the Rs 200 crore mark at the domestic box office today. In the latest entertainment news, Hrithik Roshan has pulled a muscle and he posted a picture of himself on crutches. Hrithik Roshan took to Instagram to share an anecdote about his grandfather who refused a wheelchair at the airport to maintain his image of strength. The actor said that this made him sad, looking at how his grandfather was hiding his fear. 

The superstar then talked about how true strength is about accepting help when needed and being okay with vulnerability.

Check out the post here:

"Good afternoon. How many of you out there ever needed to be on crutches or a wheelchair n how did that make you feel? I remember my grandfather refusing to sit on a wheelchair at the airport because it wouldn’t align with his own mental image of himself as “strong”. I remember saying “But Deda, its just an injury and nothing to do with how old you are! It will help heal the injury n not damage it further!” It made me so sad to see how strong he needed to be just to hide the fear n embarrassment on the inside. I couldn’t make sense of it. Made me feel helpless. I argued that the age factor is not applicable cause he needs the wheelchair for an injury and not his old age. He refused n kept the strong image on display for strangers (who literally didn’t care). It worsened his pain and delayed the healing," he wrote on Instagram.

"There definitely is merit in that kind of conditioning, its a virtue. It’s the mentality of a soldier. My dad comes from the same conditioning. MEN are strong. But if you say soldiers never need crutches And even when they medically do, they must refuse, just for the sake of keeping the illusion of strong intact, Then I just think that the virtue has been stretched so far that it borders on plain stupidity. I believe true strength is being relaxed , composed and fully aware that nothing, not crutches, not a wheelchair, not any inability or vulnerability - and certainly not any sitting position can lessen or alter the image of that GIANT that you are on the inside," he added.

Further sharing an update, Hrithik Roshan wrote, "Anyways, pulled a muscle yesterday woke up wanting to reach out about this notion of strength. This is ofcourse a bigger conversation , the crutches is just a metaphor. If you get it, you get it."

Talking about 'Fighter', the new Hindi film released in theatres on January 25, and the movie opened to mixed reviews. 

Globally, the film is nearing the Rs 350 crore mark. 'Fighter' has already become the second-highest worldwide grosser of Hrithik's career after 'War'.

'Fighter' revolves around the Balakot airstrike carried out by the Indian Armed Forces. For the unversed, this was a retaliatory airstrike aimed at the purported largest camp of the terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM).

This action was taken in response to a terrorist attack in Jammu and Kashmir, which led to the deaths of nearly 40 CRPF soldiers.
