Hrithik Roshan has revealed that he is still struggling with stammering and "Dubai" is helping him to overcome it.

Roshan junior says that he still practices his speech therapy exercises every day to overcome his speech defects.

Speaking about his struggle, Hrithik recalled a time when he had to go to Dubai for an award. For his acceptance speech, he had to practice hard to say the word ‘Dubai’ and eventually did deliver it without difficulty.

He says that "Dubai" is one of the words that has helped him overcome the "D" word which used to be his handicap earlier. Hrithik says that he still practices his speech therapy with the word "Dubai".

According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Hrithik may soon become the brand ambassador of The Indian Stammering Association (TISA). Nine members of the association met the actor at his residence on March 15.

“I’d practise every day to overcome the speech issue, I still do for an hour at least so that I can control the secondary actions like twitching and all. The unacceptability to stammering was not only bothersome in my childhood but prevailed till 2012, long after I had become a film star,” the report quoted him as saying.

Hrithik will be seen next in a film called Super 30, which is based on the life of the maths wizard from Bihar, named Anand Kumar, who coached children from backward communities to crack the elite IIT examination. Hrithik made his debut as a child actor in Shah Rukh Khan and Madhuri Dixit’s Koyla and went on to appear as a hero in the film Kaho Na Pyaar Hai opposite Ameesha Patel.
