Hrithik Roshan was born on 10 January 1974. His father Rakesh Roshan is an erstwhile Bollywood star who has now turned a producer and director, his mother Pinky Roshan is the daughter of producer director J. Omprakash. He has one sister, who is older than him.
Hrithik began his Hindi film career as a hero with Kaho Na Pyaar Hai in the year 2000. The film was directed and producer by his father Rakesh Roshan. The film went on become a stupendous box-hit catapulting Hrithik to overnight stardom. Even the songs of the film were all really very popular. His role in the film won him both the Flimfare Best Male Debutant award and the Filmfare Best Actor Male, which is a rare feat indeed.
In the subsequent years he went on to act in films like Fiza, Mission Kashmir and Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham. He also acted in a bunch of films between 2002 and 2003 which were panned by both, audiences and critics.
But, Hrithik soon tasted success again with Koi… Mil Gaya (2003), its sequel Krish (2006) was also a huge success. In 2006 he acted in Dhoom 2. The movie was a huge hit and Hrithik was simply loved by the audiences in the film. For his efforts in Dhoom 2 and Jodha Akbar which was released in the same year and was also successful, he won the Filmfare Best Actor award.
In the following years he acted in Guzaarish (2010), Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011) and Agneepath (2012). His acting in Guzaarish won the hearts of the critics, but unfortunately couldn’t win the hearts of the audiences.
But, the other two films Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011) and Agneepath (2012) were both huge commercial successes and reaffirmed Hrithik’s superstar status in Bollywood. As far as personal life is concerned Hrithik married Suzanne Roshan in the year 2000.
