Actor Hrithik Roshan was born in India on January 10, 1974, and mostly works in Hindi films. He is well-known for his dance prowess and has played a range of roles. Having earned several accolades, including six Filmfare Awards, four of which were for Best Actor, he is among the highest-paid actors in India. Based on his fame and revenue, he has been featured in Forbes India's Celebrity 100 many times since 2012. Rakesh Roshan, Roshan's father, and he have regularly worked together. In the 1980s, he had a few short roles as a child actor in a number of films, and he went on to assist his father as an assistant director on four of his projects. He won several honours for his first major part in the financially successful Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai (2000) film. His fame was cemented with his roles in the terrorist thriller Fiza (2000) and the ensemble family drama Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham... (2001), however these roles were followed by a string of critically panned films.
A turning point in Roshan's career was the science fiction film Koi... Mil Gaya (2003), for which he won two Filmfare Awards. He went on to play the title character in the film's sequels, Krrish (2006) and Krrish 3 (2013). His performances as a quadriplegic in Guzaarish (2010), the Mughal emperor Akbar in Jodhaa Akbar (2008), and a burglar in Dhoom 2 (2006) brought him accolades. His major roles in the action thrillers War (2019), Bang Bang! (2014), Super 30 (2019) biopic, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011), Agneepath (2012), and Bang Bang! (2014) brought him even more financial success. The latter is his highest-grossing film.
In addition, Roshan made his broadcast debut in 2011 with the dancing reality series Just dancing. He rose to become the highest-paid movie star on Indian television at the time while serving as a judge on the latter. In addition to starting his own clothing line and endorsing various businesses and goods, he is active in several humanitarian projects. Sussanne Khan, with whom Roshan had two children, was his wife of fourteen years.
Because he was born with an additional thumb fused to the one on his right hand, several of his contemporaries avoided Roshan, which made him feel alone as a youngster. Since he was six years old, he has stuttered. This has caused him issues in school, and in order to avoid taking oral exams, he has pretended to be sick. Speech therapy every day benefited him. When Roshan was six years old, his grandpa Prakash got him his first acting role in the 1980 movie Aasha. Roshan danced in a song that Jeetendra acted out, and Prakash paid him ₹100 for the privilege. In a number of family film ventures, notably his father's 1980 feature Aap Ke Deewane, Roshan made uncredited cameos. He made an appearance in the song "Shehar Main Charcha Hai" from Prakash's Aas Paas (1981).
Originally, Roshan was supposed to star alongside Preity Zinta in Shekhar Kapur's postponed Tara Rum Pum Pum as the lead actor in his feature debut. Rather, he played the lead role in his father's romance drama Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai (2000), costarring with Ameesha Patel, another debutante. Roshan portrayed two characters: Raj, an NRI who falls in love with Patel's character, and Rohit, an aspiring singer who is brutally murdered after witnessing a murder. He worked with actor Salman Khan to strengthen his physique, practised acting, singing, dancing, fencing, and riding in order to get ready. One of the highest-grossing Indian films of 2000 was Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai, with worldwide receipts of ₹800 million (US$10 million).
Roshan wed Sussanne Khan in a private ceremony in Bangalore on December 20, 2000. Although Khan is a Muslim and Rohan is a Hindu, Rohan claims that he respected Khan's religious views just as much. Hrehaan (born in 2006) and Hridhaan (born in 2008) are the couple's two sons. After splitting up in December 2013, Roshan and Sussanne completed their divorce in November 2014. They both insisted that their parting was friendly. Roshan sued Kangana Ranaut, his co-star in Krrish 3, for cyberstalking and harassment in 2016. Ranaut filed a countercharge, disputing the allegations and saying that his case was an attempt to hide an affair. Later that year, the Mumbai Police closed the investigation due to insufficient evidence.
After two attackers shot his father, Roshan thought about leaving the film business. He became embroiled in controversy later in December after it was said by Nepalese publications that he had said in an interview with Star Plus that he detested both Nepal and its people. This resulted in nationwide demonstrations, the exhibition of his films being outlawed, and four fatal street shootings. The people of Nepal vowed to "bury alive" him should he return there. Roshan, according to Star Plus, "did not touch upon Nepal." After Roshan produced a two-page response in which he denied having made any claims against the nation, the violence subsided. Manisha Koirala, a Nepali actress, assisted with distributing it to local TV stations and publications.
