With back-to-back two hits, Hrithik in an interview with PTI, said: "I was fortunate that I had films I was empowered by. I felt so much love and passion for these two films. From now on, I am going to set my benchmark higher. I felt more encouraged after success. It is an important success for me," Hrithik Roshan told reporters here at the success press conference of War. My instincts were very strong and if it would have failed, then I would have been affected. The most important thing for us in creative life is to be able to trust our instincts and if your instincts get reaffirmed and get strengthened, it empowers you a lot," the actor stated further.
