New Delhi: He is blessed with drop dead gorgeous looks, and can cast hi spell with those speaking eyes. The man is known for his powerful acting skills and is one of the revered actors in Hindi cinema. Any guesses, who is he? None other than Hrithik Roshan. The actor turns a year older today.
Hrithik started his illustrious career in the year 2000 with papa Rakesh Roshan’s ‘Kaho Naa…Pyaar Hai’, the film not only created a history of sorts, but also gave us a dancing superstar. Duggu (as he is fondly called), made his big screen debut opposite Amisha Patel in the movie, who was also a debutant actress.
With Hrithik’s first film, he was tagged as the possible threat to the three Khans. His fan following included maxim number of females. It was his debut film which made him an overnight star. However, Duggu had to face severe criticism, as most of his film thereafter failed to create the same magic on screen. He has received several Filmfare trophies for his impeccable acting on screen.
Many wrote him off as one-film wonder, but Hrithik made sure he continues to rule the hearts. His performance in ‘Fiza’ and ‘Mission Kashmir’ was appreciated by all. He again stormed with daddy cool’s directorial ventures ‘Koi… Mil Gaya and ‘Krrish’ series. It was ‘Dhoom 2’ and ‘Jodhaa Akbar’ where his style and acting abilities were seen.
His role of a paraplegic in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Guzaarish’ was critically acclaimed, however the film bombed at the Box Office. ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’, ‘Agneepath’ and the superhero film ‘Krrish 3’ are seen as some of Hrithik’s best films.
He married his childhood sweetheart Sussanne Khan in 2000, however the two decided to go separate ways in December 2013. Their divorce got finalised in Bandra family court on 1 November 2014. They have two sons—Hrehaan and Hridhaan from the marriage.
