In Dhoom 2 , Hrithik Roshan has delivered his first hit outside his father Rakesh Roshan 's banner Filmkraft.

Hrithik was launched by his father in Kaho Na Pyar Hai in 2000. The movie became a superhit and Hrithik became an overnight star.

But then followed a string of films for Hrithik like Fiza Mission Kashmir Yaadein Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham Na Tum Jaano Na Hum Aap Mujhe Achche Lagne Lage Mujhse Dosti Karoge and Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon .

None of these films were hits except 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham' but it also consisted of superstars like Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik wasn't given any credit for that.

All this time Hrithik didn't have the dates to spare for his father but with the string of flops, questions were being raised about his credibility as a star.

But when he did work with his father in 2003, Hrithik rose like a phoenix and delivered a smash hit Koi Mil Gaya .

Hrithik then worked with Farhan Akhtar in Lakshya , which had good script, good performances but the film didn't exactly set the box-office on fire.

Hrithik returned to work with his father in Krrish - the sequel of 'Koi Mil Gaya' and the film was a superhit.

But now in 'Dhoom 2', Hrithik has not only delivered his first hit outside father banner Filmkraft, but also stolen the show.

Hrithik spent three months to train in roller-blading, and learn some snow and sand boarding, on the side, for the role in the thriller.

"I've done everything in this film that one aspires to do in an action film. What I had done for 'Krrish' was nothing in comparison. With some of the stunts, I even took a few tumbles and scraped through near-death experiences, but came out feeling most exhilarated and alive as ever," Hrithik said recently.

The critics too agree. "After being a super-hero in 'Krrish', Hrithik seemed to be heading where 'Dhoom 2' has now taken him. It absolutely consolidates his position as a complete performer. To top it, he looks like a Greek god," said trade analyst Komal Nahata.

The dances to Brazil-inspired songs obviously came easy to the supple-bodied actor. "I'm very proud of the songs that have been choreographed by Shiamak (Davar) and Vaibhavi (Merchant). I haven't danced to many such songs in my lifetime, though there is the whole myth of me being a dancing phenomenon," said Hrithik.

"I haven't had many dance tracks to my credit. But in this film, I have two and I am very happy with both of them," added Hrithik.

Hrithik knows that he has stolen the limelight in 'Dhoom 2', but being modest said, "I've been surprised by my own attachment to this film. It was supposed to be a joyride and something that I wanted to do for fun as I was doing only serious cinema in the recent years. But 'Dhoom 2' became something that I really got attached to. I enjoyed projecting Aryan's persona."

And in his father's own words, "Hrithik is finally receiving his due."

Seems like that 35 crore deal that Hrithik signed with Adlabs won't go waste.
