So far, most of his successes came from his father and filmmaker Rakesh Roshan's stable, including his last hit "Krrish 3".
But this Sidharth Anand's directorial venture, which has been produced by Fox Star Studios at a budge of Rs.140 crore, broke the opening day record of "Krrish 3" by earning Rs.27.54 crore on the first day.
And the success brings satisfaction for Hrithik. "We did not increase the ticket prize, our film was not a solo release and still it has surpassed the collections of 'Krrish 3', so I am very happy," said the 40-year-old. Asked what is his father's reaction on "Bang Bang" surpassing the box office collection of "Krrish", he said: "I am very happy, but I don't know what my father is thinking."
"It's a one step ahead for me and it's a growth. Start has been great, it crossed Rs.100 crore mark and that's a big victory." What adds to his joy is that his children - sons Hrehaan and Hridhaan - have given it a thumbs up. "I wanted my children to like the film. They were so excited that I had to prepare them before making them watch the film." "They saw the late night show and post the picture, they said that it's the best film I have ever done. I am so happy and that reaction is the most important reaction for me," said the star delightedly. Known for being choosy and taking a break after each film, Hrithik has changed the rules now. He said, "I am pushing myself to have regular release. From the start of my career, I wanted to do two to three films in a year. Now, I will plan my years in such a way that I will have two releases in a year," he said.
