"I love pushing boundaries," says Hrithik Roshan in an interview recently as he gears up for his next release 'Agneepath'. True to his word, the actor has painstakingly worked very hard on all his films, be it on his body or his look. Here's a look
Kaho Na Pyaar Hai: The junior Roshan burst into the scene and into people's heart with Papa Roshan's blockbuster film who used a sure-shot route to success by giving his son a double role, complete with two different looks. While the first part of the film sees a famished and innocent-looking Hrithik who sings and dances while the second half sees a bulked-up and sauvé Hrithik bashing up the baddies.
Koi Mil Gaya: The film saw him playing a mentally-challenged young man in what was touted as Bollywood's first sci-fi. The actor played the zero to hero number with much élan, making it one of the biggest grossers of that year.
Krrish: In the film Hrithik dons six different looks. The actor trained rigorously to play the first Indian superhero and enthralled the audience with his mask, the black flying cape and his forever tousled hair.
Jodha-Akbar: In Jodhaa Akbar, Hrithik plays the young Akbar and has him sporting a moustache for the first time. This historical drama required the actor to go for intensive practice for horse-riding, sword-fighting as a warrior, clad in armor suit.
Dhoom2: Full marks for Hrithik's character in the film goes to the expert make-up artists from London and styling expert Anaita. The film has him playing a grungy, relaxed, easy-going person as well as being calculating and agile.
Guzaarish: For Sanjay Leela Bansali's film, the actor Hrithik Roshan grew his hair and beard. Not only did he perfect the look, the actor also studied the behaviors of paraplegic patients to get into the skin of his character. The actor used to practice around in his house on the wheel-chair as is on the wheelchair for a major portion of the movie.
Agneepath: As Hrithik gears up to reprise the iconic character of Vijay Dinanath Chauhan, compliments have already started coming in. Recently Preity Zinta tweeted Karan Johar: "@kjohar25. @iHrithik KJO ! Saw Hrithiks look in Agnipath & what can I say except its rocking & Drool Drool! All the best 4 this 1 :-) Ting!" Need we say more.
