Hrithik Roshan is hitting big milestones this year. He is marking his 46th birthday and his 20th year in Bollywood, with the hope of many more to come.

In an interview with Hindustan Times, Roshan shared that he isn’t big on birthday celebrations and likes to keep it low-key, “For me, the best way to celebrate is to make my birthday a ‘gratitude day.’ I focus on my family, friends and my incredibly steadfast fans, who do not leave a single chance to make me feel special and loved. That’s why birthdays are always dedicated to them. So, for me, it’s about spending time and doing things for them. That’s all I am going to do this year as well.”

Reflecting on his 20-year career as an actor, he said, “Each year, and with every film, there has been so much of learning. But it is only in the last couple of years that I have started feeling more assured as an actor. ‘Kaabil’ (2017) was that turning point for me and it was followed by ‘Super 30’ (2019) and ‘War’ (2019). There is some sort of composure now and I trust my instincts more than ever. I don’t feel the need to be as meticulous about what I’m going to do for a particular shot and rather just let it all flow. It is a different feeling altogether.”

For the new decade, his aim is to maintain a healthy work-life balance. “A decade is a long time and one’s thoughts and goals would either change or evolve during this time period. Having said that, an ideal target to achieve would always be to have a healthy balance between doing quality work and spending enough time with my family.”

Apart from ‘Krrish 4’, Roshan has not announced any new upcoming projects “There are a lot of scripts that I am reading right now. When I find the one that I cannot say no to, you will hear from me and that is going to be very soon.”
