Hrithik says he wasn't excited when he read 'War' script at first

Mumbai, Oct 2 (TIWN) Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan says he was not "excited" when he first read the script of 'War' as he thought it was too "frivolous and superficial".

'WAR', which also starred Tiger Shroff and Vaani Kapoor, was directed by Siddharth Anand and produced by Aditya Chopra.
The visual spectacle became an all-time blockbuster in the history of Indian cinema and Hrithik made the country drool over him with his effortless charm and mastery over breath-taking action sequences.
On the film's second anniversary, the actor revealed his first reaction to the movie's script.
He said, "Well, it's complicated. When I read the script I didn't see anything in it that excited me. It was too frivolous and superficial. And I was into 'real' cinema like Super 30 at the time. On hearing my reaction both Sid and Adi rushed to my house and it took 5 mins worth of reframing for me to GET the film. Adi said look at it as an entertainer like Dhoom: 2."
The actor added, "And then we sat and went through the entire script AGAIN and I thoroughly enjoyed it. And also realized my folly. Sometimes, it's important to GET how the director wants to interpret the script. And having done Bang Bang with Sid, I could trust in what they were saying."
He also spoke about his character Kabir from the film and said, "I saw it as an opportunity for me to try and bring in weight and depth into the film with Kabir's character which is otherwise not seen in such movies. That aspect really excited me. I think the best way to make movies which are 'not so deep' is to have characters who are really, really deep. It's fun then."
