Hrithik Roshan who turns a year older today, has much to celebrate this birthday. Unquestionably amongst the country’s finest actors, he delivered one of the best performances of 2022 with ‘Vikram Vedha’ and is now all set to leave audiences enthralled with ‘Fighter’, India’s first aerial action entertainer.
Always the one to choose quality over quantity, the actor explains how he has only done films that he actually wanted to and has never sacrificed a great script. This motivation and wisdom pours into the actor’s personal life too, as he now looks at his birthday as an opportunity to spend time doing the things that fulfill him.
When asked if birthdays still excite him, Hrithik says to a publication, “I used to see it (his birthday) as a fun day but then somewhere along the way it started becoming a chore, a duty, must celebrate, must party….Birthdays came with a slight sense of discomfort. But today, I see it as an opportunity to spend time doing things that would fulfil me. I may still do the exact same things, but now it’s out of my own desire and sense of fulfillment rather than a self-imposed mandate.”
Hrithik Roshan always keeps it real on and offscreen and continues to remain one of the most loved icons on social media thanks to his sprinkles of humour, dollops of wisdom and a real and relatable take on everyday life.
Ask the actor what his biggest learning has been in these 49 years and he is quick to respond, “That peace is not high up there at the top of pyramid that we hope to reach someday after all the work is done….wrOr at the end of the day’s work. It is, in fact, the base and foundation of every thing and every action in every moment. We need to start at peace. The very state of being at the beginning should be peace.”
After unanimously winning praise and accolades for his performance in ‘Vikram Vedha’, Hrithik Roshan now breaks new ground in 2023 with ‘Fighter’ which marks his first collaboration with Deepika Padukone.
