Hrithik Roshan and His Speech Problem

Speech disorders are a blow to confidence levels. Speech disorder implies to the inability to communicate effectively. Stammering is a type of speech disorder where in the person repeats a letter and thus is not able to speak fluently. Stammering can be overcome with the help of speech therapy sessions. A speech pathologist helps to overcome this type of speech disorder by identifying the main cause. Read on the truly inspiring experience of Hrithik Roshan who overcomes his Speech Disorder.

We are all in admiration of celebrities. We find them to be perfect in every respect, but in reality this is not the case. Celebrities too have to deal with problems. Celebrities have a tough life as they have to maintain the perfection in order to get public adulation. Many celebrities suffered from some disorder which they overcome by a strong will power. Any disability or disorder can be overcome by sheer determination. One such example of overcoming disability through will power and strong determination is our very own Actor Hrithik Roshan.

Hrithik’s Disability

His burning desire to become an actor made his determination of overcoming stammering more strong.

Overcoming Stammering a Life Changing Moment

When Hrithik decided that he had to overcome his stammering, he joined speech therapy classes. With his determined perseverance and will power, Hrithik could overcome his speech disorder. He used to repeat all the alphabets in different manners so as to have a strong grip on pronunciation thereby boosting his confidence levels. He used to practice in front of the mirror alone in a room for long hours to improve his speech skills.  He used to practice and still does for long hours. He is also quite open about his speech disorder and this openness without a feeling of shame or guilt has in turn made him more confident in front of people.

Practice Makes Perfect

Hrithik still practices speech therapy everyday for an hour so as to prevent relapsing into speech disorder again. By practicing regularly, Hrithik has managed to overcome his disability.

Hrithik is an actor so he needed to have a clear diction and good speaking skills. It must have been very difficult to overcome his disability. But i am glad that he overcame or else we would have missed out a great actor.
