Rakesh Roshan Biography

Rakesh Roshan Education

In Satara, Maharashtra, he attended the Sainik School and then moved to Nowrosjee Wadia College in Pune.

Rakesh Roshan Early Life

On September 6, 1949, Rakesh Roshan was born parents Ira Roshan and Roshan, a music composer. His mom wrote the music for the bhajan CD Krishna Kanhaiya Ram Ramaiya, released by T-Series, while his dad scored scores for mainstream Bollywood films. One of Rakesh’s siblings, Rajesh Roshan, follows in the footsteps of their father as a music director.

In other words, Rakesh wed the daughter of renowned filmmaker J. Om Prakash. Many famous film directors and other industry figures frequently visited them because of his father’s status. Pinky often accompanied her father to these events, and it was there that she and Rakesh first bonded. Om Prakash met Rakesh and decided he would make the perfect husband for Pinky, thus the two were wed. They have a son, Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan, and a daughter, Sunaina Roshan, who follows in her father’s footsteps as a film producer.

Rakesh Roshan Career

Rakesh’s first film role was in the 1970 drama Ghar Ghar Ki Kahani, which is well known for the Kishore Kumar song Sama Hai Suhana Suhani. After making a name for himself in films like Paraya Dhan and Khoobsurat, Khatta Meetha and Devata and Khandaan, he received the most acclaim for his performance as the lead opposite Jaya Prada in Kaamchor (1982), playing Suraj, a slacker who marries a rich girl only to claim a share of his father-in-wealth. law’s Audiences enjoyed the film, and the music, composed by Rakesh’s brother Rajesh Roshan, contributed to the film’s popularity. The movie featured Sonu Nigam, a well-known playback singer, as Rakesh’s nephew.

Rakesh was able to prove his acting chops in a number of films but never broke through to superstar status. Because of the difficulty of making a living as a leading actor, he decided to try his hand at directing. He made the transition to director with the tremendous success of his first film, 1987’s Khudgarz, which told the story of two friends played by Shatrughan Sinha and Jeetendra. The 1988 film Khoon Bhari Maang, his second as director, was a commercial and critical triumph. When Khoon Bhari Maang was released, Rakesh received praise for proving that a film can be successful when the heroine is the main character.

Following the success of Kala Bazaar and King Uncle, Rakesh directed Karan Arjun, which starred Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan and was the second highest grossing Indian film of 1995. There was no stopping the director with the release of Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai (2000), which became a massive commercial success. Hrithik Roshan, his son, made his acting debut in the film alongside fellow newcomer Ameesha Patel. Not only did it become one of the year’s highest-grossing pictures, but it also broke a record for the most accolades ever received by a Bollywood film, entering the Limca Book of Records. Rakesh’s first Filmfare Award as a producer and director came from this film as well.

After a three-year hiatus, Rakesh launched Koi… Mil Gaya, a science fiction film starring Hrithik and Preity Zinta in Bollywood. Jadoo, the alien buddy of a young man with intellectual disabilities, was largely responsible for the film’s success. The Filmfare, Apsara, and Zee Cine Awards all went to the movie, and so did the Best Film and Best Director prizes at the National Film Awards. Next, in 2006, he directed Krrish, the sequel to Koi… Mil Gaya and the second film in the Krrish franchise. Again, Hrithik and Priyanka Chopra played the male and female leads, respectively, while Naseeruddin Shah and Rekha played supporting roles. Although it was met with mixed reviews from critics in India, this film did well at the box office there. Rakesh also released Krrish 3, the third instalment in the Krrish film series, in 2013. The film reunited series regulars Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra with newcomers Vivek Oberoi and Kangana Ranaut. The film received mostly favourable to negative reviews but nevertheless did well at the box office.
