As Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan turned 42 on Sunday, members of the film fraternity including Anil Kapoor, Akshay Kumar and Subhash Ghai took to Twitter to wish the "super-human" many more hits, health and happiness.

After giving a glimpse of his talent as a child artiste in films like "Bhagwaan Dada", Hrithik won many hearts later with his romantic role in "Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai", which released on January 14, 2000.
Since then the actor, who is credited for films like "Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara" and "Krrish", has been entertaining his loyal fans, sometimes by playing a superhero and sometimes as an army officer.
The son of actor and filmmaker Rakesh Roshan, who once battled with stammering, has carved a special place for himself in the cinema space. His personal life was also hit with turbulence when he split from wife Sussanne Khan in 2014.
Undeterred by setbacks in his personal life, the actor delivered a blockbuster hit "Bang Bang!" the same year.
Anil also notes that Hrithik has redefined the 'Indian hero' image with his impressive body of work. He is currently prepping for another love story, "Mohenjo Daro".
Here's what the stars tweeted on the birthday of the actor with Greek god looks and swift dance moves:
