He stirred a HritikMania, which continued for months in the whole nation, on 14th January 2000, with his debut movie, Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai..!!! So much was his craze, that he eventually got around 30,000 marriage proposals on Valentine's day, 2000..!!! :D
His total income from product endorsements in 2000 was estimated to be INR 20 crore..!!! Which was, by far the most among Bollywood stars..!!!
  • Although, in-spite of all his commercial success… he often avoids handling his finances..!!! His wife (when married) and (now) parents take care of his financial details..!!!
Hrithik is very fond of photography..!!! He used to document his daily life for many years by taking pictures and putting them in scrapbooks..!!!
  • Did you know that he wanted to quit the film business altogether after his father Rakesh Roshan was shot at and wounded by hitmen sent by the Bollywood mafia..??? But he changed his mind afterwards..!!!
Hailing from a Punjabi background, Hrithik graduated from Mumbai's prestigious Bombay Scottish School and took a Bachelor of Commerce degree first class from Sydenham College. He turned down a UCLA master's degree scholarship to enter films..!!!
To learn from the ground up, he toiled as an assistant on the family's film projects, gradually progressing from tasks like set-sweeping, tea-fetching, or clapper-loading from Khel (1992) through Koyla (1997), up to a major role in story development, camera, direction, and editing..!!!
All the while he studied acting, singing, dancing, fencing, riding lessons for years. He also learned martial arts to help himself with the action sequences and learned Urdu to sound more eloquent in his films..!!!
He also pursued bodybuilding (having always been hopelessly thin), and prepared himself extensively for his screen debut for years. He worked hard on his diction and physical appearance (strenuous workout routines).
Even today, he is a fitness freak and and a role-model to many (including myself), having trained with foreign giants like Kris Gethin..!!!
  • Having said that, this guy was diagnosed at age 21 with Scoliosis and told that he could never be an actor, dance and do all the things a Bollywood hero needs to do..!!!
In late 1999… when he, as a lead actor, arrived on the sets (in Kashmir) to start shooting Mission Kashmir, his first film Kaho Na… Pyaar Hai had not yet released to theaters… so no one recognized his face..!!!
When he turned up for the first day's shoot, dressed as a Kashmiri militant, which he portrayed in the film… security thought Hrithik really WAS Kashmiri - because of his fair skin and light colouring - and refused to allow him on set..!!!
.
As an adult, whose successful acting career was only possible thanks to long years of speech therapy to overcome a crippling childhood stammer… In 2009, Hrithik inaugurated an upgraded Audiology & Speech Therapy department at the same hospital which had helped him..!!! He also donated INR 2,000,000 (20 lakhs) in the memory of his grandmother Ira Roshan..!!!
He often visits terminally ill children in hospitals, who desperately wish to meet him..!!!

Hrithik has a fondness for cats and the actor is also said to have a big heart. When terminally ill patients express their desire to meet Duggu, he always obliges. In 2000, when he made his debut with Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai, the film broke all records and swept all the major awards that year. Since Hrithik had become an overnight sensation, his fan base increased and girls across the country were swooning for him. It is said that on Valentine's Day that year, he received 30000 marriage proposals.
Hrithik, who loves to perform his own stunts and has suffered many injuries during shoots, was also diagnosed with scoliosis when he was only 21. Scoliosis is a medical condition in which a person's spine is curved from side to side and it appears like 'S' or '?'. Hrithik was told that he could not attempt dancing acts but he proved everybody wrong.
Hrithik's popularity is so much that he became the fifth Indian to have his life size statue at the prestigious MadameTussauds wax museum. According to reports, it was allegedly one of the most daring figures the museum ever created.
While assisting his family in films, Hrithik would toil and would often sweep the floor and make tea for everybody on sets. But he remained undeterred about his dream. The actor, who had a major stammering problem, was extremely thin, took up dancing lessons and even bodybuilding in order to bulk up. He further took speech therapy classes to work on his stammering. Hrithik then debuted in 2000 with Ameesha Patel in his father's production, Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai.

Things You DIDN'T KNOW About Hrithik Roshan
So you think you know everything about your heartthrob Hrithik Roshan, who celebrates his birthday today, January 10?
Do you know who his dance idols are? Or which car he drives? Or even who coined the name 'Duggu,' that's he lovingly called by those close to him?
With his first pay Rs 100 that he received from grandfather J Om Prakash for shaking a leg next to Jeetendra in the 1980 melodrama Aasha, Hrithik Roshan purchased 10 Hot Wheels cars, which were a huge rage among little boys back then
His official surname is Nagrath not Roshan.
Hrithik attended Mumbai’s Bombay Scottish School, which boasts of a starry alumni courtesy celebrities like Aamir Khan, John Abraham, Ranbir Kapoor, Abhishek Bachchan, Aditya Chopra and Ekta Kapoor.
London (United Kingdom) and Phuket (Thailand) are two of his favourite holiday spots. Though he has never travelled to Japan
Did you know Hrithik was friend Farhan Akhtar’s original choice to play Akshaye Khanna’s Sid inDil Chahta Hai as well Shah Rukh Khan’s role in Don (although he appeared in a cameo forDon. He was also offered Swades and (Siddharth’s role) Rang De Basanti.
A complete action buff, the superstar roped in Hong Kong’s Tony Ching, known for choreographing daredevil stunts in films like Shaolin Soccer and House of Flying Daggers, to design the thrills for Krrish and Krrish 3
.The Kaho Naa…Pyaar Hai hero’s first watch, a Swatch, was a gift from his (then) girlfriend Sussanne, brought out of her own pocket money.

controversy about affair with kangana:
In a recent tweet,
Hrithik Roshan
had mentioned that the chances of him dating a pope are much higher than the women the media is linking him up with. Though the tweet did not point a direct finger at anyone, but it did not miss our notice that the tweet came right after Kangana called him an "ex" in an interview with PinkVilla. Also the fact that Kangana is the only woman in the past few years who Hrithik was alleged to be dating, sort of confirms our doubt that their relationship might not have been "alleged" after all. However, what we couldn't figure out was why and how things between the duo could have gotten this ugly and looks like we have our answer. According to a report on BollywoodLife, the two reportedly ended on a bad note since Hrithik, who is very careful about his image, rubbished the relationship rumours, and this naturally did not go down too well with Kangana, who is open and verbose. The report quoted a source saying that Kangana was upset because Hrithik has been making her look like a desperate stalker when that was definitely not the case. The source further added that Kangana might just spill the beans if she has to.
Kangana Ranaut recently made headlines when she referred to Hrithik Roshan as her 'ex' in an interview with PinkVilla. So when she was asked about her ouster from 'Aashiqui 3,' Kangana went on to say that these lame rumours have been doing the rounds and that she knew where they were coming from. She later went on to say the unexpected. Perhaps hinting at Hrithik, who was supposedly the reason why Kangana was ousted from 'Aashiqui 3', the actress said that "exes" do silly things to get your attention. Hrithik, not the one to take things lying down, took to Twitter to subtly lash out at the actress, he wrote, "Ther r more chances of me having had an affair with d Pope dan any of d (Im sure wonderful)women d media hs ben naming. Thanks but no thanks." Ouch! Now that was quite a bold statement. We wonder what Kangana has to say about this.
While Hrithik and Kangana's not-so-subtle out lash at each other have raised many eyebrows, making people speculate about their alleged hidden affair, take a look at other B-Town celebs who were rumoured to be dating..

1. His First Watch was gifted to him by his then girlfriend Sussane Khan from her pocket money.
2 .His first payment was Rs. 100
  • He got that after dancing in 1980 along with Jeetendra in the film Aasha. He bought 10 Hot Wheels by his hard earned money.
3. As a Kid, Hrithik Stammered but his dedication Helped Him in Getting Rid of the Problem Forever.
  • It was so bad that he often used to bunk schoolas a kid at the times of oral exams. Even after being good at studies he was scared of answering the questions since other kids used to make fun of him when he stuttered.
4. Nickname “Duggu” Origination.
  • Hrithik’s very famous nickname Duggu was given to him by his grandmother. Actually Hrithik’s father Rakesh Roshan’s pet name is Guddu. And while everyone was thinking of a pet name for Hrithik; his grandmother came up with the idea of naming him Duggu that comes as a sound when chanting Guddu continuously.
5. Hrithik Roshan Has Actually Performed all the Stunts that We Have seen him doing in Zindagi Milegi Naa Dobara.
6. Madam Tussauds Statue
  • Hrithik is the fifth Bollywood star whose wax statue find place at the Madam Tussauds’ wax museum. The statue’s look has been inspired from his look and attire in Dhoom2.
7. Rejecting some great roles.
  • Farhan Akhtar first wanted Hrithik to play the role of Sid in the movie “Dil Chahta Hai”. Farhan also wanted him to play lead role in Don instead of SRK. One more role for which SRK was approached after Hrithik had rejected was the lead role in Swades. Other than these, Sidharth’s role in “Rang De Basanti” was also offered to him first.
8. Hrithik Roshan Assisted His Father Rakesh Roshan during the making of his two films – Koyla and Karan Arjun.
9. A Wrong Prediction
  • In a very young age of only 19, Hrithik was heartbroken to hear from his doctor that he will not be able to dance again. Not only overcoming that Spinal Disc Herniation but also becoming a dancing living legend was not any lesser than a fairy tell or fictional inspirational story.
10. Both Hrithik and Sussanne, have an identical tattoo on their wrist.
