The iconic film’s still featuring Hrithik became a meme template that broke the internet with netizens connecting to his character’s frustration in the moment.
A trade source observed, “The fact that people are still talking about a dialogue and a scene from a film that released over a decade ago is testimony to Hrithik Roshan’s superstardom and the impact he continues to make in current times. While we live in the age of memes, this one transcended borders, related to various sentiments, resonated with different people and situations in their life and leave it to a fine actor like Hrithik Roshan to make that happen.”

Meanwhile, in an interview with BT, Hrithik spoke about the film and revealed what makes it timeless. He had said, “It’s one of the few Hindi films of its time which, I think, has zero false notes. No moment, no dialogue, no intention that brings a false note. What plays out is very real. I think real cinema is devoid of the kind of heroism, which until then our films were almost reverent towards. So, this was like a breezy, refreshing, light-hearted, real film with a lot of integrity. Zoya (Akhtar, director) is the kind of person who doesn’t believe in projection, yet it reaches the audience. She doesn’t believe in preaching, yet you learn something and are inspired. She doesn’t cater to an audience, but she manages to touch the heart of every person who watches the film. And I think that’s because she comes from a very honest space. For her, the film is bigger than any actor or any audience.”
On the work front, Hrithik will be next seen in ‘Fighter’ with Deepika Padukone.
