Indian superstar, Hrithik Roshan is known to be a generous soul. His co-stars have always praised him and his support. His generosity has been witnessed by his friends and colleagues on numerous occasions over the past two decades. And now it’s none other than Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who worked with Hrithik in Krrish (2006), Agneepath (2012) and Krrish 3 (2013) re-establishing this fact by sharing his own experience of Hrithik’s helpful nature during his father’s medical crisis.
In his recently published memoirs, Unfinished, Priyanka remembers her early days when she had just stepped into the industry. She shared how it was her co-star, Hrithik, who had been the savior and her greatest support when her father, Dr Ashok Chopra, was detected with a potentially life-threatening medical complication as she was shooting for Krrish, his biggest film to date.
When Hrithik learned of his father’s critical condition and that he had to be transferred to a hospital overseas, Hrithik left no stone unturned and did what was needed. PC shared, “Incredibly, Hrithik, who is hugely successful in the Hindi film industry, called and used his contacts at Air India to arrange my father’s immediate flight to London.”
Thanks to Hrithik’s timely help, Dr Chopra was transferred to London and the necessary treatment and surgery were carried out. And he survived. A grateful Priyanka expressing her gratitude to Hrithik, wrote: “If we had not had such kind and willing people around us to act on our behalf – Hrithik and her father, Rakesh Sir, our family in Boston – I I doubt my father would have done it. I will never be able to express my gratitude to them adequately, but it is deep and lasting. “
Much like Priyanka, several other co-stars, crew members, and their families are grateful to Hrithik for his good deeds. There have been several occasions where Hrithik has stepped in to help crew members who have been injured on the sets, provide them with financial assistance and also support their families in times of crisis.
Its philanthropic side was seen loud and clear during the Covid-19 pandemic. He partnered with an NGO providing 1.2 lakh of nutritious cooked meals to nursing homes, salaried workers and low-income groups across India. Recognizing the efforts of BMC workers during the pandemic, Hrithik not only donated Rs. 20 lakh but also contributed N95 and FFP3 masks. Moreover, the superstar has also stepped forward and supported paparazzi photographers from lower middle class families. That was not all. Hrithik deposited money into the bank accounts of 100 Bollywood dancers who were unemployed and going through difficult times during the terrible pandemic.
