Hrithik Roshan’s elder sister Sunaina Roshan has penned a rather heartfelt blog post on him. It is perhaps the most intimate and close look at the Bollywood star that we have known in a long, long time.

Sharing the post, Hrithik wrote on Twitter: “My sweet sister takes me down memory lane. Love you too didi”

Titled My Brother Duggu, the post is a deep dive into the lives of the siblings, encapsulating almost the entirety of their lives. Sunaina starts off by saying how despite being the younger of the two, Hrithik has always been very protective about her. She goes on to say how even as a youngster, he would keep a watchful eye over her.

“Being the protective brother he would keep an eye on me and if I ever did anything which he thought was wrong for me, he would be the first one to tell Mom and Dad,” she writes.

In another place, Sunaina talks of how Hrithik was always a shy child but had a passion for dancing. She writes, “For Hrithik, dancing has been a passion since childhood, something that came to him easily. He worshipped Michael Jackson and would enjoy watching him and learning from him. However, he would shy away from performing in front of the family or close friends.”


She goes on to say how, thanks to his strong will power, he has always faced challenges in life upfront and fought them. She talks of the times when as a child he had to struggle with a stammer, about the time when she was diagnosed with cancer and his own operation when he has clot in the brain (Subdural Hematoma).


Talking about how he overcame his problem of stammer, she writes: “He defeated another major hurdle in life and that was overcoming or rather finding a way to live with his stammer. He says it has been his greatest battle.I remember watching him at the age of 13 as he would sit and read aloud for hours, sometimes alone in the bathroom every single day, morning and night without fail. For 22 years I saw him do this.”

She writes: “When I was diagnosed with tuberculous meningitis the doctor had kept me under monitoring and my parents were told that 36 to 48 hours were critical, and if it passed uneventfully then I would be out of danger and survive. Mom told me much later that all through the night he sat in the Mandir praying for my recovery. He even rescheduled his shoot till the doctor gave a heads-up on my safety. Even when I got diagnosed with cancer, he took the lead and must have visited at least 5 doctors before giving my parents a go ahead to let me be treated by a specialist. He had all the questions ready with him when going to the doctor and finally when he met doctor Sachin Almel who answered his queries to his satisfaction, did he let me get treated by him.”
