Hrithik Roshan’s Lakshya clocks 20 years

Hrithik Roshan and Preity Zinta starrer Lakshya has completed 20 years. The film, which is still fresh in the audience’s minds, will be re-releasing in theatres on June 21. Well, on this special day director Farhan Akhtar also shared the trailer of the film. Celebrating the joy, Hrithik Roshan shared a video in which he recalled his character Karan Shergill.

Taking to Instagram, the makers shared a video of Hrithik Roshan recounting his unforgettable experience with a caption: “Here’s to Friends, Film making, Fun & in a blink it’s #20yearsOfLakshya Back in theatres, 21st June onwards” Released in 2004, Lakshya captured the essence of resilience and identity through the character of Karan Shergill, a role that resonated deeply with Hrithik’s own journey.

Take a look here:

Reflecting on his collaboration with Farhan Akhtar, Hrithik recalls the director’s unconventional approach that allowed him to transcend traditional boundaries of performance. Farhan’s trust in Hrithik’s ability to embody authenticity and vulnerability on screen empowered the actor to deliver a portrayal that continues to captivate audiences even two decades later.

Lakshya, which was released three years after Farhan Akhtar’s debut directorial Dil Chahta Hai, had a lot riding on it after the huge success of his first film. Although Lakshya failed to replicate the success of Dil Chahta Hai, it definitely made a mark as a coming-of-age story against a fictionalized backdrop of the 1999 Kargil War. Starring Hrithik Roshan in the lead, the film was released in 2004 and has now clocked 20 years.

Although Hrithik Roshan headlined the film, he wasn’t the first choice of director Farhan Akhtar for Lakshya. The role was initially offered to Arjun Rampal. However, since Arjun didn’t have the required dates to shoot the film, the role was offered to Hrithik.

The film also featured Preity Zinta, Boman Irani and Amitabh Bachchan in prominent roles. Even though the film had an impressive star cast, it earned below-par 230 million at the domestic box office and was declared ‘Flop’. However, over the years, the film amassed a cult following and is quite appreciated by Hrithik’s fans.
