Bollywood versatile actor Hrithik Roshan took up a new role, that of a visually impaired man, in his new film. While his fans are raving about it, the actor got a happy surprise in the form of a special handwritten letter from a young boy.
Hrithik plays the character Rohan Bhatnagarh in the film Kaabil, and the letter was from a college-going boy whose actual name is Rohan Bhatnagar in Ranchi. In the letter, the boy expressed his gratitude to Hrithik for having made the name, which he always wanted to change, so special with a great performance.
The star actor was touched by the handwritten letter which landed in Hrithik's office. Here is what the boy wrote:
My name is Rohan Bhatnagar and I am a student from Ranchi. Yes, I am a real Rohan Bhatnagar.
Let me clarify that i am not your fan. I see hindi movies regularly and so do my family and friends. But this letter, if it ever reaches to you, is to thank you for something that you have unknowingly done for me.
Since childhood i wished that my name was something else and not just a Rohan Bhatnagar. the fact that its too commonplace was shared by almost everyone around me except for my parents who could hardly care about this feeling of mine. My special friend who loves me a lot and vice versa also once admitted that my name is boring. My friends usually call me Bhatnagar and i always wished they stopped doing that.
But since this January things have changed. Whenever my full name is being called there are smiles on peoples faces. And yes my special friend too now seems to like it. It's become something special about me that i am called Rohan Bhatnagar, name of the character that you played in Kaabil.
Everyone around me has loved this character and a part of that love is coming my way too.
Thanks for making my name special.
Hrithik Roshan receives a lot of appreciative letters, but this particular letter did not just catch his attention but it is something which will remain with him forever.
When asked Hrithik about it, he shared, "I am realising the significance of playing Rohan Bhatnagar well after the release of the film. There is so much of love that this character seems to have generated. Everyday I discover something more about its effect. I am also glad that people are making effort and reaching out to me in this manner."
"As an actor we play a character and we ourselves don't know in what possible ways it will connect with people. I couldn't have thought of something like this. When our work lives amidst people and touches their lives in some manner, it is a matter of great satisfaction for an actor or for that matter for any creative person," he added.
