Mr. Roshan was the poster boy of creating fashion trends and knowing GenZs, they were taking notes while watching his films!
As a GenZ myself, I can say that a lot of us believe in borrowing fashion trends and stand by it and take inspiration from the people we see IRL and those we see on screen. And while there’s no shortage of GenZ fashion icons thanks to fashion influencers on Instagram, we love ourselves a little throwback. Case in point – Hrithik Roshan and his innate ability to look like a million bucks all while looking effortless. Even at the age of 49, the Kaho Naa Pyar Hai actor is fitness and fashion goals. He’s been THE trendsetter back then and that hasn’t changed over the years either!
Whether it’s a denim shirt layered over simple tank tops and loose plaid shirts, a sleeveless leather jacket and sports vest moment when Hrithik flaunted his toned biceps and triceps in a film or making mesh t-shirts, slick biker sunglasses, bandanas and frameless spectacles popular, these outfits on characters played by Hritik are what every self-respecting GenZ fashionista like me wants to add to their wardrobe!
From all these films of Hrithik Roshan, here are some characters he played who were fashionable af!
Raj – Kaho Naa Pyar Hai
Playing the neighbourhood kid Rohit, who enjoyed singing and preferred to dress casually in tank tops and loose plaid shirts, as well as the rich-kid Raj, who enjoyed all things fancy and all he wore was mesh t-shirts, sleek biker sunglasses, bandanas, and frameless glasses, this established Hrithik in both roles as a style icon from his very first film.
Rohan – Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham
As Poo once said and we agree, Hrithik Roshan in K3G was all about good looks, good looks and good looks. We don’t know about you, but before Roshan junior no one was wearing sleeveless tops and making it into a fashion essential. K3G’S Rohan showed boys that wearing sleeveless tops was super cool and sexy.
Arjun – Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
In this movie we saw him playing a workaholic who is obsessed with money which would make you think that he wouldn’t be as fashionable. But he came through with his semi formal outfit and that vest on him looked so good that he teamed with chinos.
Jay – Kites
This era of Hrithik’s was dominated by whites and chic hats and suits. He plays a Las Vegas based dancer but he really amped up his fashion game with this film and we couldn’t be more thankful!
Aryan – Dhoom 2
With Aryan, Hritik proved that he was one of the hottest villains out there. He portrayed the biker boy style fashion so well with scarves worn as bandanas and shirts buttoned down to his chest. He delivered!
Raj – Mujhse Dosti Karoge
If Hrithik Roshan comes up to me and asks “Mujhse dosti karoge?” I would not think twice because who wouldn’t wanna be friends with this fashion icon? We love a king who experiments with colour, he gave us outfits with colours as bright as his future and we stan him for that!
