Hrithik Roshan doesnt like doing his own stunts for this reason 

Action is one of the most popular cinema genres throughout the world and action stars often take pride in performing their own stunts for movies. However, superstar Hrithik Roshan, who has starred in action heavy films like 'Krrish', 'Dhoom 2' and 'War' to name a few, believes that it is stupid for actors to try to do their own stunts.

In an old interview, Hrithik had told Lehran, "I don’t believe in doing your stunts yourself. I feel it is stupid. It should be banned. The reason I say this is because it shouldn’t be an ego trip. You are an actor, you are creating a magical world, a fantasy world and there are a lot of things that go into creating that fantasy, your makeup, your dialogues, your hair, your clothes, it’s all made to make the unreal look real.”

Further sharing why stunts should be left to trained professionals, Hrithik added, "People are specialised in doing specific jobs to help you create that entire fantasy world bit by bit. A stuntman’s job is to do stunts. He comes into that space, does his job, creates one more bit of that big picture, and you carry on. If you have an ego there… it’s like saying ‘I will write my own dialogues.’ It’s silly.”

In his superhero film 'Krrish', Hrithik was compelled to do his own stunts. Talking about that, he said, "In Krrish, I had to do my stunts. I didn’t want to and I wish I could have avoided it. I would have had happier and painless nights and mornings. It would have helped me perform better if I would have avoided them. But I had to do them because stunts in Krrish were character-based."

He added, "The way he stands, runs and moves, is all a part of his character. If I have to fall down the stairs, I would not do it myself. There are people who are trained to do that. Krrish was a different ballgame. I was the one who had to create that character and stunts were a big part of his character.”
