Why Hrithik Roshan can't stop smiling

It’s a Friday Hrithik Roshan will not forget in a hurry. Zoya Akhtar’s Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara opened to amazing collections in New Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore, and has re-established the light-eyed actor as one of the most bankable stars in showbiz. The equity of his forthcoming films has now shot through the roof!


The reason Hrithik is smiling is not this. Duggu is happy that his performance in the film has come in for high praise from trade analysts, reviewers and, of course, his coterie of friends. Says trade analyst Vajir Singh, “Few big actors have the confidence to take on films where they are not hogging the show entirely. With this film, Hrithik has once again proved how good an actor he is. His performance is outstanding and his name features high on the list of the five most bankable stars in Bollywood.”


Shah Rukh Khan, who had a special screening of the film at Mannat over the weekend, says, “Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol share screen space with Hrithik, but he is the protagonist. He has the love and the story. He has emoted amazingly with his eyes and his silences convey everything. He’s rivetting, refreshing and looks fabulous too.”


Karan Johar, whose Agneepath will be Duggu’s next release, is also blown over. Says KJo, “For the first time, Hrithik has done a “slice of life” film. His body language and easy dialogue delivery makes you wonder if there is anything Duggu cannot do. If you ask me to describe his performance in one word, I would say: brilliant!”


Hrithik was born to be a star. He has a movie star quality about him that is unparalleled in the fraternity. The fact that he can be the man-next- door in ZNMD, the superhero in Krrish or the angry man seeking revenge in Agneepath tells you that his selection of roles are brave yet superbly strategic.


The Times Of India’s film critic Nikhat Kazmi also feels that Hrithik’s metamorphosis from an uptight, money-minded stock broker to a carefree vagabond is a class act. And the one who sums it all up as far as HR’s performance goes is trade guru Taran Adarsh.


Says Taran, “Hrithik takes up challenges for himself with every project he chooses. He tries to outdo himself by pushing the limits. In ZNMD, he is in terrific form interpreting an extremely intricate and exceptional character fluently, channelling every emotion in the book through his eyes.”


Now you know why Duggu’s smile just reached his eyes!
