Biography of Hrithik RoshanHrithik Roshan is a Bollywood actor, one of the main sex symbols of Indian cinematography. He is a winner of a few Filmfare Awards. He played his best roles in his father's films, a producer and a film director, Rakesh Roshan: Kites, Found Someone, Say... You are in Love and some other films.
Difficult ChildhoodPinky Roshan is the actor's mother. A day Hrithik was born, January of 1974, woman's relatives predicted that she would be proud of her son's achievements one day. According to her husband, the film director Rakesh Roshan, no one could even imagine that Hrithik's acting career would be so successful. By the way, Hrithik's older sibling, Sunaina Roshan, became an actress as well, but she's little known outside India.
When the future actor was little, he was a real tomboy. It's understandable: when he was born, Pinky was only 21. She tried to combine her acting career with motherhood, and Rakesh dedicated most of his time to work. One day, when parents went to a party, little Hrithik went to the 13th floor of a skyscraper and started throwing beer bottles at streetwalkers. When they came home and saw it, Rakesh hit his son for the first time. Later he was sorry for doing that, for, according to the film director, Hrithik wasn't a bad boy. He was very sentimental and often cried. Attention and care removed all gaps in his upbringing.
The boy was ashamed of his birth defect - he has six fingers on his right hand. Parents decided not to remove their son's second thumb. Besides, when Hrithik was six, he began stuttering that's why his classmates from a Scottish school in Mumbai were bullying him. According to the actor, it felt like hell.
This speech defect made the future sex symbol of India dread of verbal tests. On the day of his test, he pretended sick or broke his arm to avoid it. When Hrithik turned 14, he started attending a speech therapist. It helped him to overcome the defect, but unfortunately, he didn't conquer it completely.
Everything seems normal until you start talking. The moment you start talking, you get stuck. And you don't know why. Your heart starts beating faster, and suddenly you realize that people are looking at you.
Acting CareerAfter school, Roshan received a Bachelor's diploma in the Economic and Trade College of Sydenham. At that time, he also started helping his father with the filming of Kolya as the third assistant of the film director. When most ordinary Indian boys went to nightclubs and made a play for cute girls, he lifted weights, worked on his articulation, and learned how to work with professional cameras. Members of the film set remembered a shy boy who was telling them, Everything is ready for the filming, sir.

Eventually, the father gave way to his son. Hrithik received two roles rather than one: he portrayed a poor guy who was in love with Amisha Patel's character, and he also portrayed his twin from a rich family. The young actor received Filmfare Awards for Best Male Debut.

I'm a problem solver, that's why I love them. They encourage me.
