Action is not about blowing up cars but more about planning and strategizing, says Bollywood star, Hrithik Roshan. Hrithik has said Hindi cinema became so used to "spoon-feeding" that action films became "very boring" to watch.
"It was like 'What's happening?' The action was for the sake of action...People think action is about blowing up cars. It's not. Action needs intelligent writing," he added. Hrithik further said he is now seeing a change in the action genre. “Now it is changing, and with War, I hope people start understanding that action needs to be devised according to the brain of the character,” Hrithik Roshan says.
The 45-year-old star, who is fondly referred to as the Greek God of Bollywood for his striking looks, called Hollywood star Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible films a benchmark. “A Mission Impossible is a benchmark. It’s all in a very intelligently crafted screenplay and all the characters are very intelligent. They do not spoon-feed you," said Hrithik.
