It’s a known thing that one of the best looking men on planet Earth have been the Greek Gods. They oozed hotness with their tall stature, broad shoulders, chiseled features and deep eyes. Well nowadays its difficult to find such men in daily life.. and if there are any .. they are either taken or well… leave it. So we poor souls look towards Hollywood or Bollywood to soak our eyes… Now Hollywood is too far far away, so the next option is Bollywood and Voila… did we find our desi Greek God… Yes we did …none other than our very own 6ft tall, chiseled featured, green eyes… HRITHIK ROSHAN !!
Hrithik has a very powerful lineage..he was born to family of cinema personalities. His father, actor and director Rakesh Roshan, is the son of music director Roshan. His uncle Rajesh Roshan is a famous music director. So it was but obvious that acting and singing is in his blood.
Having overcome a stammering problem in his childhood, he went on to work as child artist in many films, before debuting in the blockbuster “Kaho na Pyaar hain”(2000) which changed his life forever. With girls falling for him everywhere, he saw stardom in such a short time and it made us think that hope he is not a one movie wonder like Kumar Gaurav. But he proved himself and did good serious cinema like “Fiza” and “Mission Kashmir” where his acting was praised apart from his looks.
His next lot of movies were hits and some were flops.. and then came his dad’s “Koi Mil Gaya”.. a sci fi film and the chemistry between Hrithik and “Jadoo” was something new to everyone. With this started the series of his “K” films directed by Papa Roshan. “Krrish” and “Krrish 2 “ gave us our own Indian superhero and he got a different set of fans… The Kids…!! But thinking of it .. by working within his home productions only, was he making himself exclusive to other makers?
“Jodha Akbar” made us go back in time and we felt that Akbar would have looked like this only, but then he did a ‘bromance’ movie “Zindagi na Milegi Dobara” and made us come to reality that he is the man of this era !! His last release was in 2014 and now after 2 years we are eagerly awaiting his period drama love story “Mohen jo daro” …where we are awaiting to watch the much tanned Hrithik.
But life has not been so easy for Hrithik since his childhood. His struggle to overcome stammering at a young age was a turning point. Later his marriage to childhood sweetheart Suzanne and then getting divorced after 14 years of marriage has made Hrithik a strong person. His brain injury and subsequent surgery has made him realize the importance of life. In all these difficult times, he has maintained a positive outlook towards life.
Right now Roshan Jr is embroiled in a legal battle with Kangana Ranaut which can aptly be called the “Battle of the exes”. The two, who were apparently dating in the past, slapped a legal notice against each other for tarnishing their respective images in the public. And we know that he would come out of this difficult situation too with optimism. In the meantime he is spending quality time with his sons and pampering them with father’s love.
But all this has actually taken a toll on his career. In an industry where if an actress is not seen for like a year, the next movie she does is called her “comeback” , Well Hrithik has not been on the silver screen for like 2 years.. his last screen presence was in 2014. And with young actors propping away every now and then and giving brilliant performances can we say that “Mohen Jo Daro” is his comeback movie??. His fight is not only to give a push to his career but also give competition to the young stars and also make his critics silent who say that Hrithik is a thing of the past….So would this movie give that high to his already sagging career or will our desi Greek God would be buried away in our memories forever. One thing is for sure we cannot lose such an incredible actor for sure…and we hope that this movie breaks all records and brings back Hrithik to the top again…. Only time can tell !!
