A lightning performance as a thief and his drool-worthy dance moves with Aishwarya, this is what raised the bar for the YRF franchise.

Jalaluddin Akhbar in Jodha Akhbar
The royalty and grandeur of the Mughals combined with the generosity and wisdom of Akhbar, Hrithik’s tall stature brought Akhbar alive in ways no one else could have!
Vijay Deenanath Chauhan in Agneepath
A remake of the original but set in the 2000s, Hrithik was the only one who could take the challenge of depicting the anger, strength and courage that Amitabh Bachhan owned in the original. Take a bow, Hrithik!
