The actor who carries two thumbs on his right hand, surprised the nation with his mind blowing acting skills, arch angelic looks,well sculptured body and exceptionally good dancing ability, instantly rising to unimaginable heights of fame and stardom with his 2000 blockbuster debut, ‘Kaho Na Pyar Hai’ opposite Amisha Patel. Hrtihik Roshan is known as a perfectionist and a control freak.Like most of his Bollywood counterparts he has had his share of controversies. His alleged affair with his Kites’ co-star Barbara Mori resulting in an emotional turmoil in his marital life, made it to the headlines as soon as the cat was out of the bag. He was seen having generous amounts of alcohol at functions and parties as well.
Hrithik was confronted with the misfortune of the attempt of assassination of his father Rakesh Roshan at the beginning of his career which had a devastating effect on him and even made him contemplate of a very early retirement from films. He was in for more trouble when a handful of Nepalese students claimed that the superstar had passed derogatory comments against Nepal and its citizens culminating into a riot.The Bollywood heartthrob has also had the honour of being the youngest male actor to unveil his own wax figure at the prestigious Madame Tussuad’s Museum in London. He has been in the news of late for his proclaimed support towards the concept of euthanasia, better known as mercy killing. This is perhaps because of his latest movie Guzaarish in which he impersonated the challenging role of a paraplegic who fights in the court asking for euthanasia.Five of his must watch movies would beyond doubt include Koi Mil Gaya, Jodha Akbar, Krissh, Kaho Na Pyaar Hay and Dhoom 2.
Be it action, drama, romance, comedy or sci-fi, people have seen him grow as an actor and he has won many accolades for his unnerving performances in the various genres he has played. These films strike a chord and are unforgettable not because they provide entertainment but because they are well made and there is something meaningful about them. All his movies can be distinguished by the passion with which he acts to create an everlasting impression.
