The filmmaker turns 52 today. On this occasion, we will share an interesting fact about him that you probably did not know.

Aditya Chopra – A Better Dancer than Hrithik Roshan?

There is a docu-series on Netflix, titled 'The Romantics', which explores the legacy that YRF has on Indian society. In the series, several actors and directors associated with YRF reveal some fun stories related to YRF.

A surprising fact that came up during the four-episode series is that Aditya Chopra and Hrithik Roshan used to have dance face-offs as kids.

Abhishek Bachchan recalled, "When we had birthday parties, there was the inevitable dance competition and the dance competition was the domain of two people. Two rivals. Two opposite sides of style."

"Adi won every dance competition year after year after year. And who was number two to him- Hrithik Roshan," added Karan Johar.

Abhishek further added, "So the minute they'd walk into the party, they'd just be looking at each other. It was almost like Western showdown."

Hrithik Roshan, who is hailed as the dance icon of Bollywood, spoke about the same: "I don't know what happened. He was supposed to be the one who grows up and does those moves."

The ‘War’ actor called his dance moves "pretty amazing" and added, "They sometimes did not even look much like dancing  but it was still very amazing to watch."
