IBNS-CMEDIA: Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan on Wednesday left his fans panicked after he shared an image on Instagram where he could be seen on crutches.

Hrithik said he was injured after he suffered from a muscle pull.

In his mirror image shared on Instagram, the actor could be seen standing with the support of crutches.

In his long Instagram post, Hrithik wrote: “Good afternoon. How many of you out there ever needed to be on crutches or a wheelchair n how did that make you feel?”

“I remember my grandfather refusing to sit on a wheelchair at the airport because it wouldn’t align with his own mental image of himself as ‘strong’. I remember saying ‘But Deda, its just an injury and nothing to do with how old you are! It will help heal the injury n not damage it further!” It made me so sad to see how strong he needed to be just to hide the fear n embarrassment on the inside. I couldn’t make sense of it. Made me feel helpless. I argued that the age factor is not applicable cause he needs the wheelchair for an injury and not his old age. He refused n kept the strong image on display for strangers (who literally didn’t care). It worsened his pain and delayed the healing,” he said.

“There definitely is merit in that kind of conditioning, its a virtue. It’s the mentality of a soldier. My dad comes from the same conditioning. MEN are strong,” he continued.

Roshan wrote: “I believe true strength is being relaxed , composed and fully aware that nothing, not crutches, not a wheelchair, not any inability or vulnerability – and certainly not any sitting position can lessen or alter the image of that GIANT that you are on the inside.”

He said strength is not always being Rambo against all odds.

Speaking on the mishap, he said: “Anyways, pulled a muscle yesterday woke up wanting to reach out about this notion of strength. This is ofcourse a bigger conversation , the crutches is just a metaphor.If you get it, you get it.”

Hrithik was last seen in the movie Fighter.

The movie hit cinema halls last month ahead of India’s Republic Day celebration.
