Hrithik Roshan marks 20 years in Bollywood as his debut movie ‘Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai’ turns 20 today. Here’s a recap of all the success the actor has achieved over the years.
Even though, Hrithik was referred to as a one-film wonder after the super success of ‘Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai’, he managed to make a big comeback. He gave lots of flops after his debut film. ‘Fiza’, ‘Mission Kashmir’, ‘Yaadein’, ‘Aap Mujhe Achche Lagne Lage’, ‘Na Tum Jaano Na Hum’, ‘Mujhse Dosti Karoge!’ and ‘Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon’ – all the films were massive box-office disasters. The sole respite Hrithik had during this period was the multi-starrer ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ where he played the 3rd lead after Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. However, he rose like a phoenix pretty soon.
Rohit from ‘Koi…Mil Gaya’ was a challenging role given that he had to play a man who was mentally a kid. Hrithik awed everyone with his performance as Akbar in ‘Jodha Akbar’ and as the super thief in ‘Dhoom 2’. One of the most challenging roles Hrithik played was of a quadriplegic in ‘Guzaarish’ where his body movement was restrained. Over time, Hrithik as Karan Shergill in ‘Lakshya’ swooped the nation with his performance, despite the movie being a flop at the time of release. And once again, Hrithik as Rohan Bhatnagar in ‘Kaabil’ and Anand Kumar in ‘Super 30’, Hrithik won hearts of millions.
The actor is multi-talented and never stuck to one genre, Hrithik has ventured in action movies as well and has given us our very own superhero with ‘Krrish’, he has also given superb performances as Rajveer Nanda in ‘Bang Bang’ and as Agent Kabir from his most recent movie ‘WAR’, Hrithik smashed through box-office records.
The superstar has amassed a massive fan following over the years not just across the nation but throughout the world. From cricketers to Bollywood celebs, Hrithik’s fan following is everywhere.
Hrithik’s list of accolades and recognition is long, from being crowned as the Entertainer of the Year to topping the list of Sexiest Asian Man in the world thrice in four years, Hrithik has come a long way. He is also one of the few Indian actors to have a statue of themselves at Madame Tussaud’s in London. The superstar has also won awards like the Rajiv Gandhi Young Achiever’s Award and the National Citizen’s Award.
Needless to say, the actor has come a long way from ‘Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai’ and has a long way to go. Let’s wait and watch what his next project would be.
