How did Hrithik Roshan earn his money and wealth?
Born to the famous Indian director Rakesh Roshan, Hrithik Roshan was not oblivious to the Bollywood Industry. He made his first appearance on the screen when he was only six, in his grandfather Om Prakash’s movie ‘Aasha.’ He earned 100 rupees from his grandfather for motivation. But his first speaking role was not until he was 12 in the movie ‘Bhagwaan Dada.’ Childhood was not the best part for Hrithik as he had an extra thumb on his right hand, which made him feel isolated. He also had to take daily speech therapy to come out of the insecurities.
His early education was at the Bombay Scottish School, and he graduated in commerce from Sydenham College where he also discovered his passion for dance while taking part in various dance and music festivals. Though he was diagnosed with Scoliosis at the age of 20, he was able to overcome the condition by slowly increasing the pace of his jogging, which, according to him, was the turning point of his life. Roshan liked being on the sets with his father, sweeping and making tea for everyone, and of course, learning acting. He got married to Sussanne in the year 2000. They have two children together. They got divorced in 2014.
Hrithik Roshan made his entry as a lead actor for the first time in a romantic movie ‘Kaho Na Pyaar Hai’ directed by his father, which brought him huge success and infinite compliments on his acting and dancing abilities. That film also led him to win Best Actor and Best Male Debut Awards at the IIFA Awards, Zee Cine Awards, as well as Filmfare Awards. He was the first actor to have won both Best Debut and Best Actor Awards in the same year for Kaho Na Pyaar Hai. It was considered to be the highest grossing movie in India in 2000. Roshan got encomium for his second movie ‘Fiza’ regarding his overall persona, including expressions and body language. With various other successful movies in between, Roshan’s big hit was ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham’, where he can be seen as a supporting actor, which turned out to be among the most successful films of B-Town. He also got nominated for the Filmfare Awards for Best Supporting Actor for the outstanding charm he brought to the role. His other remarkably successful movies include ‘Koi Mil Gaya,’ ‘Lakshya,’ ‘Krrish,’ ‘Dhoom 2’, ‘Jodha Akbar,’ ‘Guzaarish,’ ‘Agneepath’ and ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara,’ for which he took home, several awards as the Best Actor. However, ‘Krrish 3’, which lacked originality, gained him praises for his acting skills and became one among the highest grossing movies of all time worldwide earning $40 million.
Alongside acting, he was also seen judging a dance competition, performing on stage, also endorsing deals with Coca Cola, Hero Honda, and Tamarind. His brand value, in 2016, turned out to be 34.1 million dollars.
