Hrithik Roshan Biography

With papa Roshan's blue eyes and mama Pinky's jaw line Hrithik Roshan's arrival was bound to break records in the world of Hindi films. His fabulous dancing and emoting skills were an added bonus that led to the birth of a star. Hrithik Roshan is a star adored by adults and kids likewise.

It was indeed after a long time an actor sent an entire nation into frenzy and generated an unprecedented hysteria. In the process, a sizeable dent has been created in the popularity rating of the Khans. Hrithik finally exploded the myth that the Khans were invincible.

Armed with the best banners in the town, Hrithik jumps from one set to the other. Works in shifts but the amazing quality that goes on to make the young man an adorable actor is his humility.

The position that Hrithik has achieved today puts even veterans in a fit of insecurity but the boy takes his success in his stride. He still goes around learning and taking tips from his seniors. A thorough gentleman, Hrithik does not take refuge in cheap tricks of hiding girlfriends/wives under cover. Suzanne Khan, daughter of Sanjay and Zarine Khan is his beau, and he has no hassles in letting you know about it.

Wanted to quit the film business altogether after his father Rakesh Roshan was shot at and wounded by hitmen sent by the Bollywood mafia, but changed his mind.

Fought hard to overcome a stammering problem.

Worked for many years on the sets of his father Rakesh Roshan in various functions, including sweeping the floor and serving tea to the stars, to learn the business from scratch.

Believes in the good in every person, a character trait often misinterpreted by others as gullibility and/or na�vety.

Got 30000 (!) marriage proposals on Valentine's day 2000.

Was the victim of a defamation campaign in late december 2000. Rumors were spread that he stated in an interview that he hates Nepal and its people. This immediately led to riots in Nepal, cinemas showing his films were attacked, posters burnt, Hindi movies banned in general for some days and several people shot dead by the police. The events made headlines all over the world and the governments of Indian and Nepal got involved as well. Anti Indian/Hrithik sentiment died down quickly when it became clear that the alleged statements were a fabrication and the rumors were spread by a malicious third party, possibly the Bollywood mafia, still pissed about not getting the foreign rights to Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai (2000). Nepal born actress Manisha Koirala played an important role in getting the news to the people in Nepal that the accusations were false.

In January 2001 Hrithik Roshan was again involved in a controversy. This time about a poster created and used by the Democratic Alliance in South Africa in November 2000 to woo Indian voters. The poster used his face without permission. The ANC reacted angrily and threatened to ban his films.

On January 14 2000 Hrithik Roshan entered a cinema to attend the premiere of his first film Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai (2000). When he came in some people recognised him but not much happened. When the film was over there was a stampede and mass hysteria broke out. He got mobbed. The police had to come and escort him out of the cinema and away from a crowd of thousands. It was the first day of Hrithikmania in India, which held the country in its grip for many months to come.
