Career Profile

Hrithik Roshan is an Indian film actor known for his versatility and work ethic in addition to great dramatic range. Roshan has won six Filmfare Awards and established himself as one of Bollywood's highest-paid and most respected actors.Hrithik's maternal grandfather—famous director-producer J. Om Prakash—first introduced his beloved grandson on-screen at age 6 in the hugely successful Aasha (1980), by secretly having his camera crew film without the little boy's knowledge as he danced spontaneously while 'visiting Grandpa' on Grandpa's movie set.

Hrithik's one childhood speaking role—his only substantial film performance as a child—came about at age 11–12 through a family emergency, of sorts: The boy originally cast as Govinda, the title character's adopted son in director J. Om Prakash's Bhagwan Dada (1986), fell seriously ill just as shooting was supposed to start. They needed a boy immediately, so at the very last minute his grandfather suggested taking Hrithik.

After completing school and college, Hrithik turned down a Masters Degree scholarship for further study in the United States, to concentrate instead on film. To learn filmcraft from literally the ground up—he started off sweeping floors, then gradually progressed to more demanding responsibilities like story development, camera work, direction, and editing—Hrithik spent the next six years as a largely uncredited assistant to his father, director Rakesh Roshan, from Khel (1992) through Koyla (1997).

After small appearances as a child actor in several films throughout the 1980s, Roshan made his film debut in a leading role in Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai in 2000. His performance in the film earned him Filmfare Awards for Best Actor and Best Male Debut. He followed it with leading roles in Fiza and Mission Kashmir (both released in 2000) and the multi-star blockbuster Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001).

After several less notable performances, he starred in the blockbusters Koi... Mil Gaya (2003) and its sequel Krrish (2006), both of which won him numerous Best Actor awards including both the Filmfare Award for Best Actor and the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actor, together, for Koi... Mil Gaya. Roshan received his third Filmfare Award for Best Actor for his performance in the action film Dhoom 2 (2006), and his fourth for Jodhaa Akbar (2008) For Jodhaa Akbar he also won Best Actor honours at the Golden Minbar International Film Festival, his first international award beyond the Indian film industry.

He later received further acclaim and Filmfare Best Actor nominations for his work in the drama Guzaarish (2010), the hit romantic drama Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011), the revenge drama Agneepath (2012), and the superhero adventure Krrish 3 (2013), the latter two of which rank among the highest-grossing Bollywood fims of all-time. He has thus established himself as a leading contemporary actor of Indian Cinema.

Apart from acting, Roshan is a stage performer and playback singer, endorses several major national and international brands, has hosted the hit TV show Just Dance, and has also launched his own clothing line named "HRx" .

During a shoot in Thailand for his upcoming film Bang Bang (2014) with Katrina Kaif, Roshan suffered a head injury from a stunt accident. On 7 July 2013 he underwent brain surgery at Hinduja Hospital, Khar, Mumbai, to relieve a chronic subdural hematoma. He will feature in Ashutosh Gowariker's period drama Mohenjo Daro . He will also pair up for the third time with Katrina Kaif in Zoya Akhtar's Road alongside Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol.
