It has been a spectacular 20 years since Hrithik Roshan made his father Rakesh Roshan’s debut as an actor in Kaho Naa… Pyar Hai (2000) until his latest release, Siddharth Anand’s action thriller War (2019). The superstar, who faced a stuttering problem as a young boy (he volunteered and talked about it in his media interviews) – would rehearse for hours before hiring. Today he is one of the best actors of our generation and has received awards in the past few decades.

While some of his films may not have performed well at the box office, each of his characters was different and was appreciated by critics and audiences alike. Some of the actor’s roles are nuanced and gray, including Sanjay Gadhvis Dhoom 2, Karan Malhotra’s Agneepath, and more recently Siddharth Anand’s War.

Starting with a promising debut in Kaho Na … Pyaar Hai, the actor won the 2001 Best Actor and Best Male Debut Awards. In his first film, he made his debut in a double role as aspiring singer Rohit and NRI billionaire Raj Chopra surprised many, but the young actor’s confidence in both roles helped him.

In the same year, Khalid founded Muhammad’s Fiza Hrithik as an actor. His portrayal as Amaan Ikramullah won the hearts of many. Then, as Rohan Bhatnagar, a blind spokesman in Kaabil (2017) who decides to take revenge when his wife is raped and killed, Hrithik may not have received an award, but no one can take away his delicately nuanced accomplishment in it.

When we speak of Hrithik’s emotionally nuanced performances, Sanjay Leela Bhansalis Guzaarish (2010) deserves special mention. In order to give authenticity to his role, the filmmaker instructed Hrithik not to train regularly because he did not want him to look fit. Hrithik’s portrayal of Ethan Mascrenhas, a paralyzed magician who became a radio jockey and asked for mercy killing, made his fans go crazy.

Later, in Mission Kashmir (2000), it was Hrithik’s complex but sensitive portrayal of young Altaaf Khan that caught the eye. He impressed a young man traumatized by the discovery that his adoptive father (Dutt) was responsible for the death of his entire family, and his performance earned him much praise.

During his next films in the next few years, including Yaadein by Subhash Ghai, Aap Mujhe Achche Lagne Lage by Vikram Bhatt, Na Tum Jaano Na Hum by Arjun Sablok, production by Yash Raj Films, Mujhse Dosti Karoge! and Sooraj R Bajatya’s most important Prem Ki Diwani Hoon, whose supporting role as Rohan Raichand in Karan Johar’s ensemble family drama Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, in which Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Kareena Kapoor play the leading role, was not good out.

Hrithik again won gold with his father Rakesh Roshan’s science fiction superhero flick Koi … Mil Gaya (2003). When he played Rohit Mehra, a mentally disabled young man who came into contact with Jadu, an alien being, when Hrithik laughed, cried and connected with his alien friend and a gang of school children, the audience did the same and Hrithik swept everything The best actor is awarded again. With the superhero Krrish, KMG gave birth to a new crusader with an Indian cloak and paved the way for the successors to follow soon.

Perhaps one of his best achievements is that of his portrayal as Emperor Jalaluddin Mohammad Akbar in Jodha Akbar by Ashutosh Gowariker. Whether it was the brave warrior or a daring swordsman, a wise ruler, or a loving husband, every page of Akbar turned into hitherto. Farhan Akhtars Lakshya (2004) is one of the actor’s remarkable accomplishments that highlighted his versatility as an actor. For many, Hrithik’s role as Lieutenant Karan Shergill was loved by many and nominated for best actor by everyone.

We also saw Hrithik become an action hero in Siddharth Anand’s romantic thriller Bang Bang (2014) and action thriller War and in Karan Malhotra’s Agneepath as an angry young man Vijay Chauhan. In Bang Bang (an official adaptation of the Hollywood film Knight And Day), Hrithik went to the extreme and did some top-class stunts as secret agent Jaiwant / Rajveer Nanda.

When Aditya Chopra asked him to play the antagonist, a cool, stylish master thief, Mr. A / Aryan, in Sanjay Gadhvis Dhoom 2, Hrithik picked him up. The multi-dimensional aspect of such seemingly gray, complex, nuanced characters is excitingly different for the actor. He showed it perfectly when he played the former RAW agent (Kabir), who became a villain in the war. Hrithik can be characterized by action, romance, drama and emotions, but his ability to transform himself into a completely different person was demonstrated again when he described the mathematician Anand Kumar, who lives in Patna, in Vikas Bahls Biopic Super 30 (2019) played.

Whether it is a good, bad or gray character, Hrithik has received all sorts of awards. For Hrithik Roshan, films are not a business. Acting is his passion. For each role, the audience eagerly awaits which award it will win next. That’s the Jadu (magic) of Hrithik Roshan.
