Speaking about his childhood memories with the festival of Navratri, Hrithik shared, “Bachpan mein bohot khelta tha (garba, dandiya). Bohot mazza aata tha. Mujhe yaad hai ki meri daadi (Ira Roshan) jo hai woh mujhe samjhati thi, mandir main jo devi stapith hoti hai unke bagal mein meri picturon ki jo script hai woh rakhti thi, blessings ke liye. Aur mujhe samjhaati thi ki yeh jo utsav hai yeh unn devi ka utsav hai jisne burai ka sarvanash kiya tha. Uss devi mein bohot shakti hai.. Woh shakti mujhe aaj nazar aarahi hai, aap sab mein! Aur yeh saari jo shakti hai yeh main leke apne kaam mein daalne waala hoon. Apne kirdaar mein daalne waala hoon. Agar aapko mere kaam mein kabhi power dikhein, toh yeh yaad rakhna ki yeh power mujhe aapse mila hai.. Uske liye bohot bohot bohot shukriya. Agar aapka power na ho toh mera kuch nahi hosakta.”
