Rakesh Roshan is a Bollywood film maker/director and was an actor. Rakesh Roshan is the son of Bollywood composer Roshan (on September 6, 1950 in Bombay, Maharashtra, India). He is the brother of Rajesh Roshan.
Rajesh Roshan is one of the most famous music composers of Bollywood. He is the son of erstwile Bollywood composer Roshan and brother of director Rakesh Roshan. His teacher was Faiyaz Khan. In composing music often the toughest thing is to acquire knowledge of how to put a word and how to sing a line very neat and clean. Rajesh Roshan had learnt to do this from a very young age.
Roshan Lal Nagrath born on (July 14, 1917) in Gujranwala, Punjab (now in Pakistan)- died on (November 16, 1967 in Bombay, Maharashtra, India). Better known simply by his first name Roshan, was a famous Bollywood film music composer. He is the father of the actor and film director Rakesh Roshan and music director Rajesh Roshan, and grandfather of superstar film actor Hrithik Roshan.
In 1948, Roshan came to Mumbai to find work as a Bollywood music director. He struggled until meeting Kidar Sharma, who gave him the job of composing for his film Neki aur Badi (1949). While this film was a flop, Roshan emerged as a player on the Bollywood music scene with the film Baawre Nain, released the following year.
In the early 1950s, Roshan worked extensively with singers Mukesh and Talat Mahmood. Malhar, Shisham, and Anhonee were some of the movies that he scored during the '50s. He was not very successful commercially-speaking, yet garnered enormous respect from his colleagues. He also gave Indeewar and Anand Bakshi their first breaks in the industry as lyricists; these two would later become two of the most sought-after songwriters in Mumbai in the late 1960s.
Ira Roshan, is the wife of music director Roshan Lal and Grandmother of Hrithik Roshan.
The songs have been sung by noted playback singers, Anuradha Paudwal and Suresh Wadekar
Ira Roshan passed away in January 2005.
The lady responsible for the upbringing of one of India's most-loved superstars, Hrithik's mom Pinky Roshan too grew up within the film industry. Daughter of acclaimed film director J Om Prakash, Pinkie experienced early the ups and downs of families directly dependant on a film's box office collections. But despite hardships, she remembers her childhood with fond memories of her family's loving care, affection and sharing.
After her schooling, Pinkie pulled out of college to marry Rakesh Roshan - then production assistant to her uncle - at the tender age of 17. The couple were blessed with 2 children, their first-born, a daughter Sunaina, and then a son, Hrithik. With a husband who was a struggling actor, later film distributor, then producer and director, her family saw the best and the worst of success and failure in the film industry. They remained a tight-knit, loving family through it all, raising their children with good values and an appreciation for the results of hard work and determination. These values held her son in good stead many years later when Hrithik too decided to enter the film industry, and is today one of the country's most talented and popular actors.
Today Pinkie can sit back and enjoy the fruits of a wife and mother's nourishing care and support. Her husband's career as a filmmaker is flourishing, and her son's career as a young actor goes from strength to strength. Personally too, both her children have started their own families. Pinkie now has a little grandchild, Sunaina's daughter Suranika, and a dear daughter-in-law, Hrithik's wife Suzanne, to shower her motherly affections on.
