It has been a great year for Hrithik as his last film Super 30 was also a superhit.
In an interview, he said, “Professionally, it has been a very special year for me. Both the successes have been so empowering. It has only motivated and encouraged me to keep following my instincts and work hard. This success has been the sweetest for me. As for action films and me being a match made in heaven, I’d love to believe it too as it is the genre I enjoy the most.”
