Unlike many actors who leave no opportunity to turn social work activities into nice photo-ops, Hrithik traces a different line. After playing the role of a quadriplegic in GUZAARISH, Hrithik is so moved by the plight of these patients that he has started actively engaging in helping such people.
Hrthik's physiotherapist Dr. Indu Tandon, who helped Hrithik research his character in the film and taught him the body language of people who are quadriplegic, reveals Hrthik's secret. Say's she, 'After Hrithik came in close contact with quadriplegics, he was moved by their plight. We as a country still need to do a lot to take care of such patients. Now, Hrithik has started financing some patients and even rented an apartment for one deserving patient in Andheri. Hrthik's concern about such patients is so strong that he plans to start a long term association with their cause so that he can highlight their plight and help them in a better way.'
With Hrthik's little known secret about his social work busted, this gesture is only going to add to his popularity.
