The movie had released in January, but the love is still pouring in as Hrithik received a letter full of gratitude from one of his fans named as Rohan Bhatnagar. Yes, he received a handwritten note from a boy whose real name is Rohan Bhatnagar. He is a college student from Ranchi, Jharkhand and he wrote a letter to Hrithik Roshan expressing his gratitude for turning a common name like Rohan Bhatnagar into a special one in ‘Kaabil’.
Hrithik expressed his happiness on receiving the letter to HT Cafe by saying, “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. Every day, I discover something more about its effect. I am also glad that people are making an effort and reaching out to me in this manner.”
On an interesting note, the real life Rohan Bhatnagar said that he never liked his name as a child and wished to have another name, but things changed after ‘Kaabil’. He wrote, “Since January, things have changed… everyone around me has loved the character (in the film) and part of that love is coming my way too. Thanks for making my name special.”
Hrithik was extremely touched by this gesture from his fan and he said, “An an actor, we play a character and we ourselves don’t know in what 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 any actor or for that matter for any creative person.”
That’s indeed nice of you Hrithik!
