Biography

Often hailed as the "Greek God" of India, Hrithik is a revered actor, known for portraying an array of roles. Rising to stardom in 2000 with his debut, Hrithik has amassed a huge fan following over the years by impressing audiences with his acting, dancing and recent foray into singing. Hrithik was born into the influential family of the Roshans, who are known in Bollywood for their contribution to the industry. His uncle Rajesh Roshan is a prominent music director and has composed memorable numbers for some of his films. Hrithik’s father, Rakesh Roshan, is one of the most revered directors in Bollywood. He was a well known actor in his day, with enjoyable films like Khoobsurat and Khatta Meetha to his credit. As a director he is known for all time classics like Khoon Bhari Maang, Karan Arjun and Koyla. His mother, Pinky Roshan, is the daughter of the famous director, J. Om Prakash. Hrithik attended Bombay Scottish School for his education. After his graduation from Sydenham College, Hrithik returned to India to learn about films. He had a stammer as a child and had to undergo therapy for it. Roshan was first seen in Aasha (1980) as a child artist. He went on to do similar roles in a few more films of the family. He began assisting his father on films like King Uncle and Karan Arjun. Hrithik made his debut as a lead hero with Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai (2000), a film directed by his father Rakesh. The film went on to become a box office hit and earned Roshan his debut Filmfare Award. The film made him a star overnight and he came to be known as the heartthrob of the nation, for his huge female fan following. His subsequent films like Fiza (2000) and Mission Kashmir (2000), impressed the critics but failed to perform at the box office. Karan Johar’s Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001) brought Hrithik back into action but it was followed by unsuccessful films like Aap Mujhe Ache Lagne Lage (2002), Na Tum Jano Na Hum (2002), Mujhse Dosti Karoge! (2002) and Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon (2003). He came back to the limelight with Rakesh Roshan’s Koi... Mil Gaya (2004), in which he played the role of a mentally challenged boy, who meets an alien and enhances his intelligence and abilities. It earned him his second Filmfare award. In 2004, he appeared in Farhan Akhtar’s Lakshya, where he portrayed the character of an aimless boy, who later finds his calling in life after joining the armed forces. The film was a success and his performance was well received by critics. His rise to undisputed glory began with Krrish and Dhoom 2 in 2006. Krrish was the sequel to Koi... Mil Gaya. Portraying the role of a superhero, Hrithik won the hearts of the audiences and critics. Krrish was nothing less than a superhero cult, with Sony releasing story based games on the movie. Dhoom 2 was another extremely successful film for Roshan, giving him the title of superstar. Dhoom 2 also earned him his third Filmfare Award. He won his fourth Filmfare award with Jodhaa Akbar (2008), a love story of the Mughal emperor Akbar and his Rajput wife Jodhaa, played by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. His role of a paraplegic magician in Sanjay Bhansali’s Guzaarish (2010) was a controversial one. The film explored the delicate issue of euthanasia he earned critical acclaim for his acting skills, in spite of the audience’s lukewarm response to the film. In 2011, Roshan acted in the drama Zindagi Naa Milegi Dobara which was a blockbuster. He also lent his voice to a couple of songs in Guzaarish and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. He then played the role of the angry young man in the 2012 remake of Agneepath (1981), also titled Agneepath. The film was a raging success and earned him a Filmfare nomination. He later starred in Krrish 3 in 2013, which was also a hit. However, his latest film, Bang Bang! (2014), failed to impress Indian audiences. His upcoming film is Ashutosh Gowariker's period drama Mohenjo Daro, scheduled to release in 2016. Known for his sharp features including his aquiline nose, chiseled jawline, and piercing green eyes, Hrithik earned ‘ Asia’s Sexiest Man Award’ in 2013. He is known to train with fitness trainer Kris Gethin and has earned the sobriquet of ‘Greek God’ for his Adonis like looks. Hrithik married his long-time girlfriend Suzanne Khan in 2000 and they have two sons - Hrehaan and Hridhaan. However, the couple ended their 14 year marriage in 2014. Roshan has polydactyly, a condition of having more than usual the number of fingers. He has two thumbs. Apart from films, Hrithik endorses brands like Mountain Dew, Joyalukkas Jewellery brand, RADO, Acer, Reliance and more. He also has a casual wear homegrown brand HRX and recently launched an online gifting portal sendmygift.com.
