Hrithik feels it's impolite to call disabled people 'differently abled'

New Delhi [India], Mar. 3 (ANI): After playing roles of Rohit in 'Koi Mil Gaya,' Ellen Masceranhas in 'Guzaarish' and Rohan Bhatnagar in 'Kaabil,' Hrithik Roshan may have felt a deeper impact of these characters on his life.

The 43 year-old-actor revealed that while doing 'Kaabil,' he understood that using the word 'differently abled' for disabled people is not polite.

"Kaabil was a different experience for me personally. Perhaps more than the accolades and the box office success what will remain with me is an invaluable understanding. I perhaps realized for the first time that the phrase differently abled is not a polite word for disabled people. They are ACTUALLY differently abled. I didn't play Rohan Bhatnagar as a disabled guy, I played a guy who believes in himself. My way of seeing them has changed forever," he said.

The roles he played in 'Koi Mil Gaya,' 'Guzaarish' and 'Kaabil' connected with the audiences in their own unique ways. Although, all these three characters are different, there was a common thread in the way Hrithik played these characters, with all of them are emotionally intelligent.

Hrithik's performance in 'Kaabil' has been universally applauded and it played a major part in the film's success. However, for Hrithik, the success of the film is not the only take away from the movie, fighting the limitations of his personal life and delivering a supreme performance as Rohan Bhatnagar is what has been truly gratifying for the actor.
