We always remember and practice the signature step of the song “Ik Pal Ka Jeena” from Kaho Na Pyaar Hai. We admire the roles he played in Jodha Akbar, Dhoom 2, Guzaarish and Kaabil. We have seen him becoming the most happening man of Bollywood.
You might not believe that Hrithik has even served tea to the actors and swept the floors, as and when it was needed, while assisting his father on the sets. But over the years, this made his roots grow strong.
Here are some cute things about Hrithik Roshan that deserve a mention in his success story:
1. He Was A Stammer Bird In His Early Age
Yes. Due to Hrithik’s stammering problem in childhood, he hated to give oral exams and bunked the classes making simple excuses. But later, he improved his speech with the help of a speech therapist and today he is one of the finest dialogue delivers of Bollywood.
2. He Started A Speech Therapy Institution
Since, he faced a lot of embarrassment and problems due to his shuttering in his childhood day, he had a soft corner for those who had a similar kind of problem. So, in order to help those who are suffering from the same, he laid down the foundation of a Speech Therapy Institution.
3. Hrithik’s Real Surname is Nagrath And Not Roshan
Amazed? Definitely! It’s a thing to get surprised. Roshan is much familiar to our ears than Nagrath. But, the real and official name of Hrithik is Hrithik Rakesh Nagrath. Nagrath is his ancestral belonging.
4. Greek God Is The Fifth One In The Bollywood To Have A Wax Statue
After Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan is the fifth Bollywood celeb to have his own statue at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in London.
5. His Bloodline Is Music
He’s the grandson of Roshan Lal Nagrath and Ira Nagrath, who were famous classical music composers. Duggu (Hrithik) is a nephew of a well-known music composer Rajesh Roshan. Even Hrithik has given voices to songs in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and Guzaarish.
6. Our Krrish Is A Certified Diver
There’s no doubt we can call him Mr. Multi-talented. As always, Hrithik performs his all stunts by himself. Much to our surprise, Hrithik’s Daredevil stunt in “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara” was done without any double body. And the list is long.
7. He Is The Owner Of A Fashion Brand
He’s well known fashion tycoon and most stylish actor of Bollywood. Inspired by his title of Asia’s Sexiest Man, he launched “HRX” brand label for casual clothing. Of course, he loves to experiment with clothes, but this is a great experimentation.
8. He Is A Sensational Dancer
At the age of 21, Duggu was diagnosed with scoliosis, a spine deformity. After that, he suffered a head injury and underwent a brain surgery. Yet, after so many injuries and body dysfunctions, he is Bollywood’s Best Dancer.
9. He Was Once A Chainsmoker
It is better to ask a smoker how difficult it is to get rid of smoking. But Hrithik did it after five failed attempts. He mentions that it was made possible by reading the book titled, “Easy Way To Stop Smoking”, by Alan Carr.
10. His Debut Film Made Extravagant Records
Hrithik’s movie “Kaho Na Pyaar Hai” grossed 63 crores at that time. And in total bagged 102 awards, which led the name of the film to the Limca Book of World Records in 2003 for most number of awards in Bollywood.
These were some highlights from the life of ‘The Greek God of Bollywood’, who turns 44 today. Mr. Duggu (nicknamed by his grandmother) has truly proved the phrase “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara” with his strong dedication and devotion. We are all very pleased to see ‘Jaadu’ of this God.
Happy Birthday Duggu!
