Film maker Rakesh Roshan got emotional on the day of his son 40th birthday. He said “My wife and I want Hrithik to be happy and at peace with himself, no matter what.”
“Since along with Rajinikanth and Sridevi I also played the lead in Bhagwan Dada, I was there on the first day of shooting when Hrithik had to give his first shot. It was with Sridevi. I was so nervous and embarrassed that I hid behind a pillar on the sets, just watching my son quietly. I could see him very quiet, not communicating with anybody. I thought he was just not interested. But when he gave his first shot he was perfect I realized my son had it in him to be an actor. We already knew he was a natural-born dancer. Before that I thought of him as quiet boy lost in his own world of studies and school.” He added.
