The Athleticism of Hrithik Roshan

I managed to catch about 15 minutes of "Krish" on Cartoon Network today.

It so happened that Krish decided to show up in the 15 minutes that I watched. I had read an article about Hrithik Roshan's workout and was mighty impressed by his discipline and hard work as portrayed in that article. Pretty good one about his body building efforts and how he managed to get massive and lean.

However Krish made one thing clear. Hrithik is about as athletic as Kung fu Panda. He runs like a cow. And makes it so obvious that he is on a cable during the large leaping scenes that it would have been better if they had not erased his cable from the scene.

His running action breaks momentum so much that I am even surprised he moved forward. Keanu Reeves in Matrix is also like a duck but at least he was like an athletic duck. It's so disappointing to see well built guys move like they have never moved in their lives.

Just shows how much we idolise shape over actual mobility and agility. I wonder if our stars have ever run a mile in their lives.

Until next time.
