GURGAON: He is one of the most sought after male leads in Bollywood but Hrithik Roshan still doesn't consider himself as a good actor.

"I am not a good actor, in the sense that I can't just stand up and act. I take my time to get into the mindset of the character and say my lines. I really have to be the person that I am playing," Hrithik told reporters here Monday.

The actor was here along with Sanjay Dutt and Priyanka Chopra at PVR cinemas, in Ambience Mall for the promotion of their forthcoming film ‘Agneepath’, a remake of the 1990 film starring Amitabh Bachchan in the role of Vijay Dinanath Chauhan. The megastar had got the national award for it.

Hrithik revealed he was initially wary of taking up the role.

"My first reaction was why should I do it? This is an iconic role played by Amitabh Bachchan. But when I heard the subject, screenplay and basic story, it drove through all my pre-conceived notions as an audience, as an actor and it touched my heart completely," he said.

"It was so refreshing that I forgot about the old 'Agneepath'. Moreover it was a character that I was identifying with. I felt there is no reason for not to do this film," he added.

The film, produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions, is set to hit the silver screen on January 26.
