Hrithik’s year of fame and glory

Year 2006 dispelled the notion that Hrithik Roshan cannot give hit movies outside his home banner Filmkraft.


Without a doubt Hrithik can be called the most successful Bollywood star of 2006. Although the year saw a hit movie each from Aamir Khan and Sanjay Dutt , but Hrithik’s charisma and magic remained unmatched.


For instance, Hrithik was the backbone of this year’s highest grosser Dhoom 2 . The movie’s super success also proved wrong those detractors who claimed that Hrithik succeeds only when he is directed by his father.


Speaking of which, Hrithik heralded a new Superhero craze in Bollywood this year with Krrish , in which he played a village boy gifted with extraordinary physical abilities.


In both films (Dhoom 2 and Krrish), Hrithik did awe inspiring stunts. He jumped from buildings, dived into gorges, took giant leaps and did many stunts that left him injured many times.


Later in the year, Hrithik became the highest paid actor in Bollywood after a multi-crore movie deal with AdLabs.


Presently, he is working in Ashutosh Gowarikar’s movie Jodha Akbar in which he plays Emperor Akbar. Quite a fitting role for him.
