B-town most handsome and the best body dancer Hrithik has planned some golden moments for his dear papa Rakesh Roshan who completes 25 years as a director in the tinsel town.
When asked about the historic moment the elated and ecstatic, Hrithik has all parise for his father and shares, "Dad's strength and wisdom is rare. His knowledge is of course priceless and his will is like iron.
He is headstrong, yet the most humble director I know. In a world where it's tough staying successful for 25 months, he's spent 25 years.
I wonder how many decades it would have taken for aliens (Koi Mil Gaya) and superheroes (Krrish) to take birth in Hindi cinema (or if at all they ever would have), if it weren't for dad.
For the kind of risks he has taken, the ups and downs he has experienced, his thirst to keep learning, the innumerable times he has fought his way back to the top, the way he has changed with the times, and these 25 years of undying passion for cinema makes him in one word - an Institution! And I am so proud to be his son!"
The man of the moment Rakesh Roshan recalls how his journey as a director had started when he had literally hit rock bottom, he says, "Roles as an actor had dried up for me.
As a producer I had two flops - 'Bhagwan Dada' and 'Jaag Utha Insaan'. And, I was actually at my wits end thinking this was the end of the road for me.
Then God showed me another route... that of a film director. I made Khudgarz (1987).
The film was a super hit and from then on, I never looked back.'' Rakesh Roshan who has successfully explored various genres in cinema says that his versatility has been his forte and adds,"My strength is that I have not dabbled in the same genre twice from social drama to thriller; from a love story to an alien adventure; then the superhero series, I've tried different things.''
Concluding with a laugher Roshan senior says, "God hasn't given me a trumpet to blow my top, but he has blessed me with a very sensitive son who I can proudly say is one of the finest, most obedient actors of this generation. Duggu is my biggest strength.
" Yes we all agree...
