What does Hrithik Roshan have that Salman Khan doesn’t?

Jr Roshan performed some high-octane scenes for his upcoming film without using a body double unlike Salman, who has not one but four body doubles for doing different kinds of action sequences for Kick

Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif, who will be seen in Siddharth Anand’s upcoming action thriller Bang Bang have just returned from a three-week-long Abu Dhabi schedule of the film after shooting some heavy-duty chase sequences. And from what we hear, Jr Roshan has performed all the stunts without a body double.

A source present on the sets said, “Hrithik is in prime physical form and is keen to push the envelope. Despite fears of aggravating the head injury that he sustained during the film’s first schedule which led to a surgery and a long recuperation, Hrithik insisted on doing all the action sequences sans a body double. Such action will be seen for the first time in Hindi cinema.”

On the other hand, Salman Khan, who was shooting for Sajid Nadiadwala’s upcoming film, Kick in Poland also performed a risky stunt without using a body double. The bhai of B-town apparently hung from the 40th floor of Poland’s tallest building, which we certainly don’t believe considering Sallu miyaan has not one but four body doubles for doing different kinds of action sequences in Kick. So if the Dabangg Khan was keen on doing the dangerous stunts himself, there was no need for roping in not one but four body doubles in the first place, right? Also you don’t get to see Salman’s face in the image that has gone viral on the net. The picture shows a long shot of a man hanging from the building.

Anyway, while we really admire Hrithik’s courage of doing the stunts without a body double, but health comes first even if he is an actor. The Krrrish 3 actor really needs to take it slow and we are sure his best buddy, Salman, would agree with us.Subscribe to me on YouTube

    ya bro salman should agree that hrithik has the best body and he is the courageous in bollywood.

    What does HR have that SK doesn’t ? Let’s see , an extra finger maybe! That probably helped him with good grip! Plus, something is wrong with the man’s head,no? He thinks he is freaking Tom Cruise! That is why he is copying Tom’s movie!

    • Cattypuss

      Who cares>as long as he makes the movie a roaring success, unlike Cruise’s Day and Night, which bombed at the BO. I adore Hrithik as an actor, but I will be the first one to say he needs to take more care about his body. It won’t be long and all those crazy stunts and heavy dance routines will start having an impact on his body. Also he needs to realise he has two young sons who need him. He should think about that a little more instead of carrying on like he is an invincible iron man.

      • Oblivion

        Success like Jai Ho?! Please don’t compare a non actor with Hrithik..

        • Cattypuss

          Who’s comparing? Just stating some hard facts. If Bang Bang is a success it will only be because of Roshan’s undisputed magnetism.The one I am really looking forward to is Mohenjodaro. Hrithik and Ashu are going to outdo Jodhaa Akbar and make it an international smash. As for his health issues, I stand firm on my opinion. He needs to look after himself better instead of throwing himself around like a rag doll. Eventually it will affect him as he grows older.

    • hrithika

      hrithik at least doesn’t do those stupid south remakes

    • Oblivion

      Tom’s Movies are 1000 times better than south craps!

    • Karan

      Also the acting skills, versatility, determination, perfectionism, dancing skills, charm, humbleness, looks, criminal free record (you forced me to bring it in), etc….. Salman Khan has never EVER won a single award for Best Actor.

      By your logic, Salman Khan must be thinking he’s a south Indian actor, since his movies are anything but original. He’s the remake king, who always REMAKE south movies, an Indian movie into another Indian movie. By the way Bang Bang will be 50% different from Knight & Day as the makers have said and its not a remake of a mindless masala movie which you Salman fans are used to.

      A free advise – As a Salman fan, you should never EVER talk about remakes.

      • http://Handsome.com kG

        This article said the difference between the two. I agree with you about Salmon’s remakes but I must say it is better to remake Hindi style movies than trying to be all Hollywood when can’t do it proper. Your country has the second largest population in the world and yet makes first class trash movies in the world. The only Indian movies I ever watch in full are Kammal Hassan and some Rajni movies. The rest I watch for the eye candy babes! The only Khan I like a little bit is Amir but but D3 was horrible.

        • Karan

          From which country do you belong to? We don’t make trash movies (except some crap directors and actors), we actually make sensible movies with some story and broach.
          The only thing in which Hollywood is ahead, is the technology. Even they copy Korean movies.
          You were making fun of Hrithik, watch any movie of him or read the critics or audience’s reviews of his any movie on IMDB since his debut till today (2000-2014), you know nothing about him or Bollywood. He’s by far the best actor in India and better than most of your Hollywood actors.

          The fact you like Rajnikanth movies, which are known to be senseless, speaks about your taste for movies. Kamal Hassan is great, though.

          Since when did population translate into advanced movies? Shouldn’t China be ahead of Hollywood by your logic? Bollywood movies’ budget is far less than Hollywood movies, up to 1/10th lesser than Hollywood movies, yet many of them end up being better than Hollywood, except in terms of Hollywood.

        • Cattypuss

          I am an Australian who has come to appreciate some of Bollywood’s best made movies. Obviously you haven’t watched Jodha Akbar, Dhoom2, ZMND, Lakshya,or any other of Roshan’s diverse movies. If you are looking for movies similar to a HW movie there is The Lunchbox or The Namesake starring Irfan Khan.I find their movies refreshing after watching years of HW movies filled with foul language and unnecessary over the top grunting sex scenes. As Karan has already told you BW is technically behind HW, but that is rapidly changing. Actors like Roshan are determined to change that and also bring excellence in not only acting skills,but technical excellence as well. THAT is what makes Roshan different to Salman. He is a man willing to take career risks with genres like Guzaarish.His performance in Jodhaa Akbar was what drew me to explore this guys body of work. Personally I can see a day when this man will become a mentor to India’s upcoming young stars. Where will Salman be? I guess he can always help with their body building regimes like he did with Roshan. The difference between the two can’t be any more starker. Hrithik accepted Salman’s help with his body building,but more importantly he picked up the ball and ran with it. Hrithik’s success has been achieved by sheer hard work and dedication to his craft. I do agree with you that India makes some pretty awful movies,but hey>I can show you hundreds of ours that would make you equally cringe. I am looking forward to Roshan’s Bang Bang, but the one I am really sweating on his Mohenjodaro. Oh, and I forgot Agneepath>watch that one to>best revenge movie I have seen in ages! (^_^)

          • http://Handsome.com kG

            Oh I am sure you appreciate his “body” of work! Can’t you people comprehend English? I never said I like Salmon,SRK,or any other freaking Khan. I said HR wants to be all Tom Cruise and he is a complete failure in doing so. You are a fool! Guzarish was a copy of a Swedish movie ,Zindegi na Milagi Dobara was a copy of a an American movie called A Circle of Friends. Jodha Akbar was a bore and Krish 3 was a joke. A product placement mess of stupid ,moronic story, acting and horrible special effects. He is just a wanta be Hollywood copy! I have no issues with movies like Lunch box ….I can’t think of any other quality movie from Bollywood. But let’s face it, Indian art movie are boring! I want good quality ,fun cinema and Indians make horrible movies. HR and all the rest. I loved Robbot. It was a hoot, funny,great songs and hilariously over the top special effects. So was Sivaji. Now you and all of your low IQ idiots can go watch whatever the f….ck you want!

          • Dileep Anand

            You r a sheer bullshit brother…..None can meet the standard of Hrithik roshan

            By no one you mean every one!

          • http://Handsome.com kG

            What a is sheer bullshit,I mean I do have clean bowl movements but I don’t know if its sheer !

          • Cattypuss

            Um, well why are you watching them (^_^)

          • http://Handsome.com kG

            Fair point! I am half Kashmiri and my mom loves Bollywood movies. I go to visit her a couple of times a week ,and frankly I always put on a Bollywood movie to pass time and share a common bond. Mostly I am on my personal computer while ” watching” these priceless Bollywood treasures! Usually after about two minutes I can tell what the stolen story line is from!
            The reason I particularly dislike HR is because of his pretense of being a serious actor while all the time stealing his movie ideas from white stars in the West. The reason I like Salmon more is not because of his acting talents but because he plays real Indians with a very proud and cool vibe.
            After 9/11 most dark skinned people ,Muslim or otherwise were very uncool in the USA. I remember Salmon had a movie called tumku na bhol paingai. Not a great movie. A copy of Bourne Identity but there was a scene where I goes to mosque and prays. My young nephew was watching and he said wow ,this guy is a Muslim? He is so cool! I am not religious but I really liked that SK was not afraid to be a Muslim Indian on screen. Something that all other Muslim stars avoid.

          • Cattypuss

            Well, you are typing to a white person. Personally I see no harm in Indian directors adapting western movie plots for Indian audiences. We do this ourselves with movies from other countries that we find interesting. Hrithik is a Hindu, yet he has made many movies where he portrays a Muslim, and not all his movies are copies. Hrithik is more experimental than Salman. So he should not be condemned for wanting to explore outside the box. Salman is a complete action/masala type guy. He’s not my type of actor, but I can see that you like him a lot. Personally I think both actors are very loyal Indians. Yes, Hrithik did attempt a crossover movie, but it didn’t quite fire.It would have been fantastic if he was shared by Asia and the West. It would have been a huge benefit for both and paved the way for other Indian actors to also do crossover movies. His Bang Bang movie is a copy of Night and Day,but the director said it will be 50% different to that and have an Indian flavor. But I am really interested in his next, Mohenjodaro based on the Indus Valley civilization. I like Ashu’s work and I think Hrithik will do a sterling job of this. Also I think of lot of Bollywood stars try to avoid religious themes because of tensions in the country. Everybody is trying to avoid the bad days of riots and massacres. Those incidences are still etched in the national psyche>so I can understand why so many actors are reluctant to do.

      • http://Handsome.com kG

        Why do need to “borrow” from Hollywood in the first place? Where is your pride man? You have one of the oldest, richest and most significant cultures, not mention large populations in the world yet you can’t produce original writers and stories? HR has all the resources in the world and yet he has to remake a bad Tom Cruise movie? After Tagore and R K Naryan ,you got nothing! Zero,zilch, nada! You know why! Because stars like HR and Katrina Kaif who are worshipped because of their fair skin. I like Rajnikanth and Salmon Khan because they are proud to be Indians. Rajni especially!

        • Karan

          Seriously, how old are you? You say salman and rajni are proud to be Indians? And how do you know that Hrithik or other stars aren’t? As you have already read in a reply by Catypuss, Hrithik has done far more for Indian Cinema than any of your Khans combined. Hrithik is loved by everyone, mostly “non-muslims” because of his fair skin? God help you.

          He gave India’s first sci-fi movie with KMG which was highest grosser of the year and praised by everyone. Inspired or not, they took a risk with sci-fi genre which was and still is a rare thing in India. He gave India their first successful homegrown Superhero Krrish, again which is super successful and loved by target audience. The VFX which you are criticizing in Krrish 3 were the best for any Indian movie. Better than Ra.One or Rajni’s Robot. Ask to any knowledgeable person who has actually seen the film.
          I read you didn’t like Jodhaa Akbar, again which speaks about your taste for Cinema, not surprising at all since you llike Salman’s masala movies which don’t have any sense or logic. Guzaarish and ZNMD were copied? BS. I guess every movie about friends are copied to each other, right?

          You are talking about pride of Hrithik, who have won a Golden Minbar (from Russia) Best Actor award for his Jodhaa Akbar act and 5 Filmfare best actor awards in India, just because he’s acting on a film which is a remake of a movie? What about YOUR or SALMAN’s pride who always, I mean ALWAYS remakes south films and has never EVER done anything for Indian cinema except starting a trend of remaking films?

          Hrithik wan’t to be like Tom Cruise, well guess what, he’s better than Cruize in any way possible, be it acting, versatility, work ethic, other talents like dancing and singing or looks.

          I hope you come up with a reasonable reply this time.

          • http://Handsome.com kG

            Once again Karan! I am not Salmon fan I just prefer him more. But seriously ,if you think Krish was a good movie you have drunk the cool aid. It was unwatchable . I have never sat through a full three hour of a Salmon movie except for andaz apna apna. Winning Russian awards or Indians award just means dady is spending some big money! Furthermore, box offoce in India just means ,well the masses are stupid and that holds true in Hollywood too except Hollywood products are most not as shabby and cheaply made. And as for your wonder boy HR ,why does he have to remake anything anyway? He has got all the resources in the world ,let him see make something better than Cruise. Original!!!get it? Kammal Hassan just made Vishwaroopam,a very good world class thriller.
            But I don’t know why I am wasting my breath on you. You like the mediocre crap that Bollywood cranks out,then watch them.
            You want to worship Karina Kaif becouse she has fair skin but Zero talent go ahead.
            Ah ah ah…I can’t believe I am having an argument about quality of cinema who thinks box office determines quality. By that logic Chennai Express is the best Indian Movie ever made!!

          • Cattypuss

            Katrina is a good dancer, but I agree she has a fair way to go in the acting department. The other thing I have noticed about your posts is there seemingly racist undertones.Why?Some of my favorite actors are not white/or fair skinned. My favorite African/American actors are Denzel Washington and Morgan Freeman.My favorite Japanese actors are Ken Watanabe and Takahiro Tamura. Colour matters not to me.It’s the quality of the actor that draws me to them,not their colour or race.Yes,I like Roshan a lot, but he is not the only Indian actor I admire. I am also very partial to Irrfan Khan’s work.Anyway, as Karan said, you seem to have a problem with Indian cinema. Fair enough, we are not only to hang you for having an opposing opinion on this subject. India is rapidly catching up with HW and that can only be a good thing for those who admire great cinematic work where ever it is made. As far as I am concerned actors like Roshan and Irrfan are paving the way!! :) )

        • Karan

          Look, I am not even a Salman hater. I prefer him over any superstar Khan, but your comments about Hrithik are completely pointless.

  • Karan

    “What does Hrithik Roshan have that Salman Khan doesn’t ? ”

    The acting skills, versatility, determination, perfectionism, dancing skills, charm, humbleness, looks, etc…..

  • Karan

    I know Hrithik always pushes himself to extreme and gives his 100% everytime, that’s why he’s the perfectionist. But, I think he should start to take care of his body now. Not only he’s 40 now, but also has history with injuries.

    • Being human

      After all salman khan is a super star

    • Cattypuss

      That’s exactly what I am concerned about right now. As you say he is 40 and needs to take a little more care for the sake of his boys. He suffers from painful shin splints. I have studied his dance routines and I can see why>he slams those legs down hard in some of his routines>and don’t get me started on his back>he injured that badly lifting Sanjay Dutt in Agneepath>and also injured his shoulder when picking up Ameesha as he swung from that chain in the final scenes of KNPH.It will eventually tell on him in later years. Hey>I just wrote a bible sized reply to kG>read it if you have time! Nice to see you posting>haven’t seen you lately. Hope all is well with you. :) )

      • Karan

        I agree, its always nice to your posts as well :) That was a great reply, but don’t bother feeding the trolls, you know Khan fans (most of them)
        are jealous of him.

  • Anoymous

    This is a nonsense article, people saw him do the stunt, btw hrithik too as body doubles!!

  • Bandy Banerjee

    Body doubles are roped for the film that doesn’t mean they do each and every scene. An actor can choose to do whatever he wants to. Salman usually does all his stunts except the glass breaking ones. People were standing below while salman performed this stunt. And finally it doesn’t matter. People go to movies to watch superstar salman khan. That’s it.

  • Bandy Banerjee

    What normal people have that bollywoodlife doesn’t? – Brain. You are so stupidly open about your hatrade for salman and show your bias so shamelessly. What’s the matter? Are you angry because he doesn’t care about media monkeys?

  • Salman is not an ACTOR

    What does Hrithik have that Salman does not? – HOLLYWOOD ACTING ABILITIES, GOOD LOOKS, AN AMAZING ATTITUDE, THE BEST DANCE MOVES?! What a stupid title… it;s like comparing the work of Sonia Gandhi to that of Narendra Modi, the latter is more successful, ambitious and skilled than the former!!! :)

  • Being Roshan

    plz dont compare a student with his teacher…its not fair…. bdw salman is the most lovable & powerful star of bollywood….
