Humanity has been obsessed with the potential concept of alternate life forms existing parallel to human existence in some part of the universe. It’s a concept that long precedes contemporary life, as research into foreign life forms has existed for decades.
Multiple forms of media have tried to create imaginative stories of these potential life forms, so much so, that stereotypes have emerged about life forms that we can’t even confirm if they exist! Most notably, in Bollywood cinema, Koi Mil Gaya starring Hrithik Roshan and Preity Zinta has become one of the popular forms of sci-fi films.
The Jadoo of Koi Mil Gaya
Koi Mil Gaya directed by Rakesh Roshan was released in 2003, and became an instant hit. The film stars Hrithik Roshan as Rohit, a young man with brain damage from an accident while he was a foetus, and has resulted in learning disabilities. This made him get held back multiple times in school, as he went to middle school as a full-grown adult.
Rohit is visited by an alien from outer space, who is then named Jadoo. This alien gets strength from sunlight, and bestows much of his power on Rohit, leading him to become a genius. This became an integral part of pop culture, even 20 years later.
Shraddha Kapoor’s Jadoo of Dhoop
Shraddha Kapoor is hailed as one of the leading actresses of Bollywood, for her roles in multiple popular films such as Aashiqui and Aashiqui 2, as well as Ek Villain. Her work has earned her multiple accolades and recognition.
Very recently, Shraddha took to Instagram to post a string of stunning images of her in the sun. She donned a simple camisole top, as the focus remained entirely on the natural light and authenticity of her appearance. The sun kissed nature of the images prompted a quirky caption.
The caption read “need dhoop like jadoo”, as multiple fans and netizens commented on the post. The most popular reaction was from none other than the king of dance in Bollywood, Hrithik Roshan.
Hrithik Roshan and Shraddha Kapoor’s Sunny Banter
Hrithik Roshan comments a massive cliffhanger and cryptic message on Shraddha Kapoor’s post when he says that He is coming, will tell him. This sent netizens and Bollywood fanatics into a massive meltdown, including Shraddha Kapoor herself. The actress shot a reply back rapidly asking anxiously about the details and to reveal them.
Some speculation has spurred online about a potential return to the Krish/Koi Mil Gaya series, potentially involving a cameo from Shraddha Kapoor. However, it’s important to note that rumours such as these swirl after any and all unexpected interactions between celebrities. For now, netizens will continue to hope for any potential on-screen interaction between the two actors.
