Film career

2000–2002: Debut, success and setback

Roshan was originally scheduled to make his screen debut as a lead actor opposite Preity Zinta in the cancelled film Shekhar Kapur‘s Tara Rum Pum Pum. Instead, he starred in his father’s romantic drama Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai (2000) opposite another debutante, Ameesha Patel.

2003–2008: Revival and awards success

Roshan’s career began to revive with a starring role in Koi… Mil Gaya (2003). The film, directed and produced by his father, centers on his character Rohit Mehra, a developmentally disabled young man, who comes in contact with an extraterrestrial being—a role that required him to lose nearly 8 kilograms (18 lb).

2009–2012: Critical acclaim

Following a small role in Zoya Akhtar‘s Luck by Chance in 2009, Roshan starred in and recorded “Kites in the Sky” for the multi-national romantic thriller Kites (2010). In the film, produced by his father, he played a man running a green card scam in Las Vegas in which he has married 11 different women in exchange for money.

2013–present: Krrish 3 and beyond

Roshan appeared in the third instalment of the Krrish film seriesKrrish 3 (2013) which also starred Priyanka Chopra, Vivek Oberoi and Kangana Ranaut. During production, Roshan was injured when he fell down, which resulted in back pain. Critics thought that the film was entertaining but lacking in originality, though Roshan’s performance garnered praise.
