Hirthik took to his Instagram handle to update about his injury with the fans and also penned a note about real strength and societal expectations for men to conceal their vulnerability.

Hrithik Roshan Shared Mirror Selfie With Crutches After Muscle Injury

Sharing a mirror selfie of himself, the ‘Fighter’ actor penned his thoughts about how men are conditioned by the society to not show or express their vulnerability.

The caption goes as, “Good afternoon. How many of you out there ever needed to be on crutches or a wheelchair and 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 and not damage it further!”

It made me so sad to see how strong he needed to be just to hide the fear and embarrassment on the inside. I couldn’t make sense of it. Made me feel helpless. I argued that the age factor is not applicable because he needs the wheelchair for an injury and not his old age. He refused and kept the strong image on display for strangers (who literally didn’t care). It worsened his pain and delayed the healing.

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. 💪

But if you say soldiers never need crutches And even when they medically do, they must refuse, just for the sake of keeping the illusion of strong intact. Then I just think that virtue has been stretched so far that it borders on plain stupidity.

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.

Strength is not always being Rambo against all odds with a machine gun saying “fuck em!” That’s applicable for sure. Sometimes. And it’s the kind we all aspire for. Even me.

But the more coveted one is strength when there is no one to fight on the outside. It’s that quiet fight on the inside between you and the “image” of you. If you come out of that one feeling like wanting to do a slow dance by yourself , then you’re my hero.

Anyways, pulled a muscle yesterday and 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. #beagiant #giantsdontgiveashit #strengthisgraceful”.

Along with fans, many celebs from the industry have wished speedy recovery to the actor through comments. Hirthik’s War co-star Tiger Shroff wrote “Get well soon❤”. Varun Dhawan wrote “Heal up 🙌”, Neil Nitin Mukesh wrote “Get well soon 🤗🤗 God bless ❤”.

A fan wrote “Speeeeeeedy recovery our blue eyed boy ❤️🙌👏thank you for always sharing ur trials and tribulations❤️🙌👏”.

Hrithik’s father wrote “More strength to you 💪🏼” while his girlfriend Saba Azad wrote “My love ♥️ you a giant if I ever seen one 💪🏽💪🏽”.
