Ahead of Fighter release, Hrithik Roshan wishes co-star Anil Kapoor on birthday, shares throwback pi
On the occasion of Anil Kapoor's 67th birthday, Fighter o-star Hrithik Roshan shared a throwback photo coupled with an anecdote about the veteran actor.
Hrithik Roshan is currently gearing up for the release of Fighter. The Siddharth Anand directed aerial action film, will be hitting theatres on January 12, next year. Besides Hrithik, the film also features Anil Kapoor and Deepika Paduone. On the occasion of Anil Kapoor's birthday on December 24, Hrithik shared an old picture with the actor, tracing his long association with him.
Hrithik Roshan's wish for Anil Kapoor
Hrithik Roshan took to his Instagram handle to extend a birthday wish for Anil Kapoor. The wish came in the form of a throwback picture featuring a younger Hrithik flanked by Anil Kapoor and father Rakesh Roshan on either side. The picture was from the sets of 1992 romance thriller Khel, starring Kapoor and directed by Rakesh Roshan. Interestingly, Hrithik had served as an assistant director on the sets of the film. Hrithik's birthday wish carried reflections of the journey he has shared with Anil Kapoor over the year - from an AD on his sets to a co-star in Fighter.
The caption to the post read, "Sets may have changed, scripts may have changed and I may have graduated from being his AD in Khel to costar in #Fighter - but @anilskapoor’s energy and mastery of craft remains as incredible as ever! Happy Birthday Anil Sir - keep being the ‘Rocky’-ing human you are!"
Anil Kapoor has had a strong year in terms of films
The veteran actor, who just turned 67, saw through two releases this year. The first was sex comedy Thank You For Coming in which he had an extended cameo - Kapoor was also a producer for the film. This was followed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga's Animal in which he essayed the role of Balbir Singh, father to Ranbir Kapoor's Ranvijay Singh and the fulcrum of the intense family saga plot.
The film is currently running in theatres and has minted upwards of 860 crores in worldwide collections. The actor will now next be seen in Fighter in the role of Rakesh Jai 'Rocky' Singh.
