Hrithik Roshan has recently been approached by The Indian Stammering Association (TISA) to become their brand ambassador,He has opened up about his life struggles to cope up with speech issues. The actor has voiced out his opinion against the social stigma associated with disabilities previously too, on many occassions.
The krissh actor reportedly disclosed that he used to stand in front of the mirror and talk. He used to also record his voice and learnt how to sing too.
The actor who is well known for his amazing delivery of dialogues and punchlines on screen with amazing expressions and accent as well had shared insights from his struggles with stammering. The actor, as per a statement, also confessed that he could only fulfil his dream of becoming an actor after undergoing speech therapy.
HRITIK INFORMED,“I’d practice every day to overcome the speech issue, I still do for an hour at least so that I can control the secondary actions like twitching and all. The unacceptability to stammering was not only bothersome in my childhood but also prevailed till 2012, long after I had become a film star.”
“I have now accepted myself as a slow speaker, I have to go through the sentences for a fraction of a second in my mind before saying them aloud. For a long period, it was a struggle for me to accept this, but now I am fine with it,” the Krrish 3 actor acknowledged.
During an early stage of his career, he also revealed that he had to let many scripts that had long monologues and speeches go, since he wasn’t confident of pulling it off. He also recalled going to Dubai in order to accept an award but was struggling to say the name of the country properly then. He had to practise his speech multiple times and after that he delivered it smoothly later.
He also disclosed that he was set free after the breakthrough Neuro-Linguistic Programming came into his life in 2012. But he still needs practice, he asserted. “Stammering is an underrated challenge because its gravity isn’t discussed much, it is grave because it is related to your confidence as a human being,” he further said.
