“I am no god of dance. I am very happy that I have become a symbol of dance, so that through me, so many talented gods of dance will get an opportunity. I am happy and blessed about it,” Hrithik said.

“But I’m not the best dancer in the country, city or my neighbourhood. I’m just a very hardworking dancer,” he said.

While unveiling the music video of the dance reality show Just Dance, Hrithik, who is making his television debut with this show, shook his legs with media persons. The show is slated to go on air from June 18 on Star Plus.

When asked if he finds folk or any other form of dance difficult, Hrithik said, “I find every dance difficult. I start with zero. Whenever I start, I feel I can’t do it and then I keep rehearsing.”

Talking about his idols in dancing, the 37-year-old actor said, “One of course is the true god of dance - Michael Jackson and the other one is Shammi Kapoor. He goes beyond steps as his body just moves to music.”

Hrithik however refused to name anyone from the current crop of actors saying, “It is difficult for me to name because if I miss out some name they will feel bad.”

The actor, who proved his dancing prowess in his first film Kaho Naa Pyar Hai itself, will judge the show along with choreographers Farah Khan and Vaibhavi Merchant.

Asked how he managed to juggle between his film career and his television commitment, Hrithik said, “The definition of a successful man is not depending on how much money a person has earned or how much fame he has, it is about how he manages his time.”

“If you are a slave to your time, then you can’t be successful man. The person who takes out time for everything he wants to do, that person is truly successful. Time management is important. It’s an everyday practice that I’m learning. There are too many things happening so I need to improve my time management techniques,” he added.
