Hrithik Roshan is perhaps one of the greatest actors that Bollywood has to offer. The 44-year-old actor is a huge fan of the late pop sensation, Michael Jackson. Earlier today, on the occasion of International Dance Day, he shared a throwback pic from his childhood days, in which he is seen entertaining an audience with his impeccable dance moves. Through his capion, the Kaabil actor revealed that the pic dates back to 1982 when MJ’s Thriller had just released.
He wrote, “That’s an inspired 8 year old me doing nonsense, but to Mom and Dad, I was Jackson that night.” While Hrithik tried being modest, his fans gave him a huge thumbsup . One even called him Bollywood’s Jackson. Another Instagram user called him a huge inspiration for all the dancers in the world. Ever since Hrithik made his debut in Bollywood with his father’s film, Kaho Na Pyaar Hai, he impressed everyone with his dancing. And even now, the actor continues to leave us enthralled with his dance performances in each of his films. Case in point being, Bang Bang’s title track, which had him dance to the song in true MJ style. It was indeed the best tribute the actor could have ever given to his childhood hero. Meanwhile, take a look at his Instagram post and the video of Bang Bang, below :
If that is how the actor danced back in the day, we can understand why the crowd is cheering so much for him in the pic. Meanwhile in the professional front, Hrithik is busy filming for his upcoming film, Super 30, a biopic on a mathematician, Anand Kumar, founder of an IT coaching programme that goes by the same name. Helmed by Vikas Bahl, the film also marks the debut of Kumkum Bhagya star, Mrunal Thakur. The film is slated to release next year.
