Hrithik Roshan (born 10 January 1974) is an Indian actor who appears in Bollywood films. The son of the filmmaker Rakesh Roshan, he has portrayed a variety of characters and is known for his dancing ability. He is one of the highest-paid actors in India and has won many awards, including six Filmfares.

Roshan has frequently collaborated with his father. He made brief appearances as a child actor in several films throughout the 1980s, and later worked as an assistant director on four of his father’s films. His first leading role was in the box-office success Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai (2000), for which he received several awards. Performances in the 2000 terrorism drama Fiza and the 2001 ensemble melodrama Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham… consolidated his reputation but were followed by several poorly received films.

The 2003 science fiction film Koi… Mil Gaya, for which Roshan won two Filmfare Awards (Best Actor and Best Actor – Critics), was a turning point in his career; he also appeared in its highly successful sequels: Krrish (2006) and Krrish 3 (2013). He earned widespread praise for his portrayal of a thief in the 2006 adventure film Dhoom 2, Mughal emperor Akbar in the 2008 historical romance Jodhaa Akbar and a quadriplegic in the 2010 drama Guzaarish. Further success came with the 2011 drama Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, the 2012 revenge film Agneepath and the 2014 action comedy Bang Bang!.

Roshan has also performed on stage and debuted on television with Just Dance (2011). As a judge on the latter, he became the highest-paid film star on Indian television. He is involved with a number of humanitarian causes, endorses several brands and products and has launched his own clothing line. Roshan was married for fourteen years to Sussanne Khan, with whom he has two children. He is among the most popular Indian celebrities.
