Hrithik Roshan and Rakesh Roshan.

Film director Rakesh Roshan was shot in 2000 in Mumbai. Although, he did not take much time to recuperate the incident left the industry in utter shock. In 2021, Hrithik Roshan talked about the incident during an award show and was left in tears.

At Filmfare 2021, while looking back on the horrific incident, Hrithik said, "As you all know, in the past few weeks my family has been through a lot. We have witnessed joy, happiness, success, fear, sadness over the last few days. My father who believes in doing good work was recently attacked by unknown assailants."

The actor further added, "On that day, I just couldn't help but feel, I was losing faith in hard work and goodness in the world. Basically, nothing made sense and I wanted to quit even before things begun for me. But something changed all that. Something changed what I thought. On that day in the hospital when you came and I saw your faces and in your your own special way you made me feel that I was not alone, that I'll never be alone."

Here's the video:


On January 21, 2000, Rakesh Roshan was shot at by two unknown assailants near his office in Mumbai’s Tilak Road. Of the two bullets fired at Rakesh, one hit him on his left arm and the other one grazed his chest. As he fell on the ground after being shot, the two assailants ran away from the scene.

Hrithik will be seen next in Vikram Vedha. The film is the Hindi remake of the Tamil film of the same name. Vikram Vedha is set to be theatrically released on September 30, 2022.
