Doctors told me that I couldn’t become an actor. - Hrithik Roshan recalls his childhood struggle 

One of the biggest stars of Bollywood, Hrithik Roshan recently opened up about the challenges that he had to face while growing up and how he felt dejected because of them. While he is known for his amazing physique and slick dance moves, there was a time when Hrithik had a stammering problem and doctor even told him that he cannot be an actor because of a certain issue with his spine.

According to a recent report in The Indian Express, Hrithik said, "I have sometimes felt that life is very unfair. In school, I had such a bad stammer that I couldn’t speak. I never had any friends, or girlfriends. I was very shy, and would come back from school and just cry. School days were very painful…on top of that, doctors told me that I couldn’t become an actor. There were problems with my spine, doctors said ‘you cannot dance’.”

Sharing how these problems affected him, the actor added, “I was so broken, that I would wake up for months, and would think it is a dream, a lucid dream. It was so heartbreaking and relive that feeling of knowing that I could not become an actor…I am disabled. So it was very traumatising.”

Hrithik concluded by saying, “Now when I look back, I thank god, thank you for giving me the problem where I could learn how to be strong, I learnt perseverance and if I did not have a broken spine and speech impediment…for the day to be there, you have to have the night."
