Hrithik Roshan is known as the dancing legend of the country and is often appreciated for his world-class physique. Many may not know that he was not perfect since childhood, he had problems but he fought the odds and rest is history. One of the most remarkable film of his career was Koi Mil Gaya. The film starring Hrithik Roshan and Preity Zinta depicted a beautiful story of friendship between human and an alien. The movie completes 15 years since it was first launched.
The person behind the mask of ‘Jadu’ was an actor named Indravadan Purohit, a dwarf who acted in many Bollywood films. Jadu’s costumes were made by an Australian artist James Callner. And now after 15 years of the film’s release, the pictures revealing the face of the man who played the alien ‘Jadu’ has come to light. However, to everyone’s information, sadly Indravadan Purohit passed away on September 28, 2014.
As the film completed 15 years, Preity in her Instagram post wrote how she believes that the “magic” of Koi… Mil Gaya continues to cast its spell on Bollywood even in this time and age.
And now after 15 years, Hrithik chose to relive his old memories as a kid by talking about the special film. In his note, he wrote,
“Rohit helped me understand every single thing I went through as a boy with a stutter. And made me realize how everything that “is” was simply meant to be. He helped me understand that strength was not as important as courage. And that it was okay to have weaknesses. And that being okay with your weaknesses in itself was courage.”
Also he added:
A good tip for today’s gen who should know that u can never really communicate the tone while typing the words. Today relationships are sometimes at the mercy of how the typed sentence is interpreted.

Koi mil gaya gave birth to Krrish, and in a weird way playing Rohit gave birth to a newfound strength in myself. Rohit helped me understand every single thing I went thru as a boy with a stutter. And made me realize how everything that “is” was simply meant to be. He helped me understand that strength was not as important as courage. And that it was ok to have weaknesses. And that being ok with your weaknesses in itself was courage. Another beautiful thing he taught me is never to assume what other people are thinking. He never did. Never tried to mind read others like we do so often in this age of sms and whatsapp. Rohit took things at face value or based on evidence. A good tip for today’s gen who should know that u can never really communicate the tone while typing the words. Today relationships are sometimes at the mercy of how the typed sentence is interpreted. 15 years ago jaadu happened in the theaters and another jaadu in my own life. So keep going. Others have said this before , I’m saying it now and you will say it one day looking back at the things that didn’t make sense. It’s all going to work out . I promise . On its 15th anniversary, I’m sharing a few of my favorite moments from the film. I want to thank all the people who were part of this amazing journey. Especially my dad n mom. And ofcourse thank you to all of you for the love u gave me. #15yearsofkoimilgaya #itsmagic #itsallgoingtoworkout #jaadu #ipromise
