Because of the actor’s struggle with speech problems, Hrithik realized the importance of such disabled children and thus, he started a foundation for their assistance. He wanted to be very tolerant, patient, and empathetic by taking up such philanthropic activities.
In his earlier interviews, Hrithik had spoken about his stuttering affected him mentally. He felt that stuttering was one of those disabilities wherein people who can speak mock such stutters. Kids may feel that they are funny while teasing people who have speech problems but it really is mean. So, such children really have to go through a lot of mental pain while dealing with others.
On the work front, Hrithik will be featured in Fighter, which is an action-thriller film and will also have Deepika Padukone in the main lead. The shooting of the film is in progress in Assam.
