Hrithik Roshan celebrates his 46th birthday today, and gosh does he give all the 20-year-olds in the industry a run for their money still! He has had a great year and been winning at the box office with back to back hits and the has whole nation swooning over his jaw-dropping looks! But not without his share of difficult times battling health issues. On his birthday today, Hrithik’s mom Pinkie Roshan took to her Instagram to share some never seen before pictures of his right before he went for his brain surgery.
During the shoot of his film Bang Bang in 2013, Hrithik suffered a head injury while performing his stunts and later caused complications to his health as it turned into a clot. Hrithik had to go through an intense surgery for that but as mentioned by his mother, he was so strong throughout and put on such a brave face. She wrote about how there was no fear in his eyes and had no worry.

#Today I share these never before seen images with a heavy heart. However, it is not heavy with regret, sadness or concern. It is heavy from the immense love that flows through it, with each blood cell empowered by the immense gratitude I feel to be Duggu’s mother. We set an example in the way we behave, we instil character in our children, support and encourage them, but what happens when their compassion, strength and courage outgrows that of the parent? What happens when everything you hoped to be, aspired for in terms of strength and inspiration is right before you in the eyes of your own son? Before Duggu was going for his brain surgery, I was almost fainting. Palpitations in my heart, blood pressure high, prayers on my tongue, I felt every inch of me was overwhelmed with a shadow of concern. Seeing my son so vulnerable physically in the hands of the doctors made him seem as helpless as a newborn and he was again those same beautiful eyes looking up at me just as the day he arrived in the world. The eyes had no fear, no worry, no stress. I saw my reflection in them and found his strength empowering me and my own being changing because of his courage and determination to beat this. There has never been a challenge Duggu hasn’t faced head on and failed. His power of mind is his superpower and the beauty of it is that it inspires all around him too, giving us strength. As he saw the sadness in my eyes, he winked and as if by magic he made me smile. A warmth enveloped my entire being as if I was bathed in light. A smile and a wink was all it took for me to feel reassured, energised, inspired and confident that he would be OK. Look at these pictures and those eyes. Does this look the face of a man about to have major brain surgery? No, it looks like someone who has already conquered it. The small child I had carried for 9 months, given birth to and held in my arms was now cradling me in his and returning all the strength and love back to me and I gave him a million blessings in that moment.
Such a sweet and heartfelt note, isn’t this? Nothing compared to a mother’s love and adoration for their children. We are so glad he is all hale and hearty and looking like a million bucks.
Sussanne Khan also took to her Instagram to wish Hrithik a very happy birthday. She called him the most incredible man and shares such cute pictures of him and their sons.
So sweet, right?
