Hrithik Roshan can be counted as a true blue Bollywood actor. He is the third generation Roshan in the business of films. His maternal as well as paternal grandparents have been a part of Bollywood. While his maternal side was more involved in the business of making films, his paternal side was in the music making business.
J.Om Prakash – Hrithik Roshan Maternal GrandFather
Hrithik Roshan’s maternal grandfather is the renowned director and producer J. Om Prakash whose social dramas were hugely successful. It was J. Om Prakash who first introduced a young Hrithik to the magic of cinema, at the age of nine; Hrithik was filmed dancing unknown to himself, by his grand dad. All present during the shooting were impressed by the young star-in-making. Soon, Hrithik became a kind of lucky mascot for the family productions and was used in some small scene or two in assorted films. But, Hrithik in his turn considers his grandpa to be his lucky mascot, for it was his grandfather who had called the first shot for his super hit debut film Kaho Na…Pyaar Hai! Even now, Hrithik continues to insist on his grandfather calling the first shot for all his home production films.
Roshan Lal Nagrath and Ira Roshan – Hrithik Roshan’s Paternal GrandParents
Hrithik Roshan’s paternal grandfather was Roshan Lal Nagrath who was a famous music composer and classical musician. His music was heard in films for nearly three decades; from the 1940s to the 60s. His grandmother, Ira Roshan is a singer and music composer in her right too. Ira had left Kolkata when she was in her twenties to join All India Radio in New Delhi. She met and fell in love with Roshan Lal Nagrath and went on to marry him, setting her own career aside. It was Ira who completed the music obligations of her husband, Roshan Lal Nagrath when he passed away, suddenly. It was also Ira, his Bengali grandmother who gave him the name of Hrithik, which means an enlightened saint. Thanks to his grandmom, Hrithik can apparently understand the Bengali language and loves the Bengali food cooked by his ‘Thami’( grandmother in Bengali), especially the fish preparations.
Rakesh Roshan – Hrithik Roshan Father
Hrithik Roshan’s father is renowned actor-director-producer Rakesh Roshan. It is to Rakesh Roshan’s credit that he picked himself after a failing career as an actor only to become one of the most successful director-producers with his own production house. Hrithik and Rakesh share a very close bond professionally as well as personally. Hrithik has been a part of practically all of Rakesh’s films. Rakesh had wanted his son to complete his studies before joining films, despite knowing his inborn acting abilities and his interest in acting. When Hrithik completed his studies, he assisted his father in five of his films and continued with his acting classes before being launched in a movie. Rakesh Roshan had seen the star in his son right when he was a kid of nine years. While Rakesh says that he and Hrithik are friends; he also acknowledges the respect Hrithik has for him and knows that he will never cross the line in front of his dad. Rakesh finds that Hrithik is still the same dedicated and hardworking person that he was before and a very kind, generous and helpful man.
Hrithik had continued to stay with his parents even after marriage and parenthood. But, now after his wife has left him, there are some reports that say that Hrithik has decided to move out of his parents’ home into a flat of his own, which he is currently getting done to his specific requirements, other reports insist that he continues to stay with his parents and has leased out the bought apartment. This move has got the media abuzz with rumours regarding the reasons behind the move and its implications.
Pinky Roshan – Hrithik Roshan Mother
Hrithik Roshan is very close to his mother, Pinky Roshan. Pinky has been the pillar of strength for the Roshan family, be it as a wife during Rakesh Roshan’s struggling acting days, or as a mother during the hard times faced by her daughter and now son. Pinky realized from the beginning that being a star wife is different from being a mother. She made sure that both her children, Sunaina and Hrithik led a normal life and raised them with a lot of love. She made sure she knew what was happening in their lives during the crucial formative years and is proud that the two have turned out normal and well-adjusted. She loves the fact that Hrithik makes her feel special and loved and keeps her motivated, be it for exercising or otherwise. Pinky recounted in an interview how Hrithik makes the effort to give out flowers, specially inscribed cups and medals just to keep his family motivated to exercise.
Hrithik’s mother loves the fact that he has turned to be a warm, sensitive and devoted family man and son.
Sunaina Roshan and Suranika – Hrithik Roshan Sister and Niece
Hrithik Roshan’s elder sister is Sunaina Roshan. Recently, at a public event Hrithik introduced his sister as his ‘real superhero’ and said that whenever he is faced with challenges, his sister’s smiling attitude towards her own challenges, inspires him and helps him to go on. Sunaina has faced multiple challenges in her life, be it cervical cancer, two failed marriages and single parenthood. Hrithik has said that just one hug from his sister is enough to calm him down and soothe him.
Recently, Hrithik and his parents were out in force to support the release of Sunaina’s pictorial biography of Rakesh Roshan, titled ‘To Dad, With Love.’
Hrithik thinks of his sister as the greatest love of all, who will always be by his side and never hesitate to point out if he’s wrong. According to Sunaina even though the siblings might not get to meet or talk every day, they will always be there for each other when needed and the equation between them remains unchanged to this day.
Sussanne Roshan – Hrithik Roshan’s Estranged Wife
Hrithik Roshan married his childhood friend, Sussanne Khan once he was launched successfully in the Hindi film industry and she had returned from US after doing a course in interior designing. Both their mothers were good friends, so they have practically grown up alongside each other. Sussanne was with him right through his school days, when he was a shy, stammering and thin boy and was a major part of his journey in becoming the successful star that he is now. They have been a high profile couple, the golden couple that gladdened everyone’s heart. Sussanne seemed the perfect foil to Hrithik, renowned for her warmth and charm. So, it came as a jolt from the blue when Sussanne decided to part ways from Hrithik. While the heartbroken fans speculated wildly about the reasons for their split right from infidelity on each one’s part, in-law problems, the couple refused to pander to anyone’s vulgar curiosity and just said that it was a matter between the two of them. Though, Hrithik insinuated in the early days of the announcement that it was Sussanne who had wanted to break up and not him and that he continued to love her. While Hrithik seems to be struggling to cope with the trauma and has even hired a life coach, Sussanne seems to have moved on smoothly and is busy with her blooming career as an interior designer with her home décor store.
(Hrithik’s wife’s name has been variously spelled as ‘Suzanne’, ‘ Susanne’, and even ‘Sussanne’ by the media!)
Hrehaan and Hridhaan Roshan – Hrithik Roshan Sons
Hrithik Roshan has two adorable sons, Hrehaan and Hridhaan. He loves to spend time with his sons and now that his wife is estranged and has their sons living with her, he ensures that he spends quality time with them, taking them on holidays where they can enjoy as a family. Both Hrithik and Sussanne are making sure that their sons are not affected adversely with their split. Previously, too Hrithik preferred to spend time at home with his family, whenever he had the time.

Rajesh Roshan – Hrithik Roshan Uncle
Hrithik Roshan’s paternal uncle is music composer Rajesh Roshan. Rajesh is an integral part of all Rakesh Roshan productions. Rajesh finds that his nephew is a genuine, grounded and loving man with no artifice or manipulative inclinations. He fondly recalls that the first time he had met Hrithik after his becoming a star, Hrithik had immediately got up to touch his uncle’s feet.
