Ever since Bollywood’s very own Greek God, Hrithik Roshan blazed across our screens in a mesh T-shirt that could barely contain his bulging muscles, the country has been obsessed with the man. Good looking, gentlemanly and a versatile actor, Roshan lights up every room he walks into and the auditorium at the 66th Vimal Elachi Filmfare Awards 2021 was no different.
The actor danced to the greatest hits of his career, yes, even the numbers that went viral before the word “viral” entered our millennial and Gen Z dictionary. From Ek Pal Ka Jeena to Jai Jai Shivshankar, Roshan moved like he was one with the air around him. His moves were smooth, belying his height and musculature. The energy around Roshan has always been electrifying – he gives meaning to the term “X Factor” – but seeing him dance to the songs the defined our childhoods was mesmerising and nostalgic. It was Déjà Vu, the Hrithik Roshan way.
