Often called Bollywood's Greek God; Hrithik Roshan has rightfully earned that title due to his perfectly sculpted features. While the actor celebrates his 45th birthday today; we have found out some facts about the actor that not very many people might know. Some of them are...


1. NOT HRITHIK ROSHAN
Whhaatt!!! But yes, that is the fact. The actor's real name is not Hrithik Roshan but Hrithik Nagrath. And the actor is more often than not called ‘Duggu'; a name coined by his grandmother after he called Rakesh Roshan as ‘Guddu'. Aawwwww....



2. THE STAMMERING PHASE
Hrithik has undergone extensive speech training in order to overcome his problem of stammering. Yes, you heard it right! The actor who gets people hooked to his voice did not speak this way until quite a few years back. Infact, the actor has opened his own institute as well to help people like him overcome their speech problem.


3. FIRST PAY CHECK
Hrithik earned his first pay check at the age of 6! OMG...and the 6 yeard old kid that he was, got his first pay check from his grandfather J Om Prakash, for shaking a leg alongside Jeetendra in the 1980 film ‘Aasha'.


4. FIRST A.D
Before facing the camera; the ‘Dhoom' actor had assisted his father Rakesh Roshan as an Assistant Director (AD) for films like Khel and Koyla to understand the nuances of the film making process.


5. A SPOT BOY TOO!
While assisting his father on the films as a assistant director; the Bollywood hunk has done all sorts of odd jobs. The actor has swept floors, served tea to other actors and a lot more. Well that certainly is a sign of humility, isn't it?



6. DANCING IDOLS
Hrithik has been touted as one of the best dancers Bollywood has ever had. However, when asked about who his dancing idols are the ‘Kaabi' actor had said he idolizes Shammi Kapoor and global dance legend Michael Jackson.


7. A SCARY PREDICITION
In his younger days, Hrithik was diagnosed with Scoliosis; which is an abnormal lateral curvature of the spine and the doctors had told the 19 year old Hrithik that he would never be able to dance. However, thanks to his dedication the actor followed a rigorous physical training and is unarguably the best dancer the industry has.


8. THE BATTLE AGAINST SMOKING
Hrithik; who promotes fitness very aggressively, had once been bonded to the kick of a butt, i.e the actor was in a horrible habit of smoking and found it very difficult to quit the habit; until he read Allen Carr's book titled, "Easy Way to Stop Smoking". The actor has never smoked since!


9. 30,000 PROPOSAL'S:
Hrithik had once revealed that he got up not 100 or 200 but a massive 30,000 marriage proposals on Valentine's Day. OMG! Well this is when we remember his movie name, ‘Main Prem Ki Dewani Hu' or better so ‘Hum Prem Ki Dewaaniyaan Hain'; no?!


10. A LINEAGE IN SINGING AND NOT ACTING?!
Hrithik has a stong musical background to his credit as he is the grandson famous classical music composers of Roshan Lal Nagrath & Ira Nagrath and nephew of music composer Rajesh Roshan. This explains how tunes come naturally to him; because the understanding of music is crucial for a great dancer. Infact, Hrithik has also crooned for his films ‘Guzaarish' and ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara'.



Well after finding out these facts we certainly know that Hrithik is a man of strong dedication and will power.
