Throwback: When Hrithik Roshan danced to Michael Jackson’s Thriller at the age of eight. See pic


It’s no secret that Hrithik Roshan is an ardent fan of Pop legend Michael Jackson. The actor recently shared a picture from his childhood, where he can be seen entertaining his audience with MJ style dance moves.

Hrithik said that the picture was taken in 1982, when the iconic song Thriller released.

“1982. MJ’s #Thriller has just released. That’s an inspired 8 year old me doing nonsense, but to Mom and Dad, I was Jackson that night,” he captioned the photo.

We got a hint of Hrithik’s fondness for MJ, after watching the song Bang Bang, from the film of the same name. He nails MJ’s moves perfectly!

On the work front, Hrithik is busy filming Super 30. Super 30 is based on the life of mathematician Anand Kumar, who tutors IIT aspirants belonging to a less privileged background.

Kumar is quite certain that Hrithik is the best choice to play him. He once said in an interview, “I am happy that Hrithik will play me because he is the best choice for the role. His dedication towards his work and the kind of versatility he exhibits as an actor is very inspiring. Being a rooted and passionate person myself, I feel that he will bring an emotional depth to my life on screen.”

“I am excited to see Hrithik as Anand Kumar essaying my emotional journey. I totally trust Vikas with my story and I am confident that he will make a sensible and heartfelt film about me and what I strive to do.”

According to reports, Hrithik has also appointed a coach from Bihar, to perfect his accent.

The film is being directed by Vikas Bahl, and will hit screens in January 2019.
