Hrithik RoshanActor Hrithik Roshan, who donned the superhero avatar in the 'Krrish' franchise, doesn't need a superwoman in real life.

'I don't think I need a superwoman in real life because I have my mother (Pinky), wife (Sussanne) and sister (Sunaina). They are my superwomen and I'm glad to have them in my life. They hold a very special place and I don't want anyone else to replace it,' Hrithik told reporters here Monday.

He was speaking at the meet-and-greet event organized to celebrate the success of Krrish 3, which has reportedly minted over Rs 200 crore worldwide.

When asked how it makes him feel to play a superhero, he said: 'Being a superhero is like playing any one of us because we all have it inside us. It has been a great journey for me and I learnt a lot by playing the character.'

'I have learnt about several values a superhero posses and his service to the world. Even if we have five percent of those values, we can make the world a nicer place to live,' he added.

Rakesh Roshan-directed and produced Krrish 3, which also features Kangana Ranaut, Priyanka Chopra and Vivek Oberoi in important roles, has done exceptionally well in Tamil Nadu as well.

How Hrithik trained for Krrish 3

Hrithik followed the Body by Design plan which consists of three phases. The fundamental phase starts with basics of strength training to prepare your body for the intense training in the coming weeks. It involves isolation, compound and multimuscle movements to work the muscle to its full capacity and separate development from one muscle to the next, which helps create a toned appearance.

The second or the momentum phase focuses on strength and muscle development to add density to the muscle because the denser the muscle, the more calories are required and burned to maintain it this is when your body starts to turn into a calorie-burning machine.

The last phase or DTP (Dramatic Transformation Principle) is highly intense and really pushes your limits a notch higher. It is an advanced level though the exercises are simple, they place a distinct stress on your muscles that will push them to produce previously unimaginable results. And Hrithik is certainly a living proof of this workout plan.

Due to his knee injury and slipped disc, Hrithik did a lot of CrossFit and functional training along with the DTP plan. After 10 gruelling weeks of hard work and dedication, his body was transformed to what it looks today. (Read: Hrithik's body was transformed in 10 weeks)
