My Cycle Was Broken By Senior School Boys: Hrithik

Hrithik Roshan

Actor Hrithik Roshan has stood out to be one of the most versatile actors in Bollywood. He made his acting debut 23 years ago with the romantic drama ‘Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai’ and ever since then there has been no looking back for him. Over the years, he has delivered various impeccable performances that have established him as one of the most talented stars in the Hindi film industry. With every film, he has tried his best to leave a mark. Remember ‘Koi… Mil Gaya’?

Helmed by his father Rakesh Roshan, the film saw Hrithik in a completely different avatar. He essayed the role of a mentally-challenged guy Rohit Mehra with the sensibilities of an 11-year-old. Hrithik received several accolades for his performance as a developmentally impaired character.

As the film clocked 20 years today, the 49-year-old star opened up about how he resonated with the character of Rohit. He took a stroll down memory lane and shared that he had faced a lot of bullying as a child like his character in the film.

“I related with Rohit’s character completely. Growing up, I was bullied due to my stutter. On days I wouldn’t want to go to school and I would cry to my mother. In fact, the scene where Rohit’s scooty is broken by Raj and his friends actually happened to me in real life. I had a BMX cycle that was my most treasured possession as a child. My cycle was broken by some senior boys, and I was heartbroken. The vulnerability that was required for Rohit’s character, life had already given me through my personal experiences,” Hrithik told ANI.
