"When Bollywood hero suddenly hears 80s music in gym."
A video of Hrithik Roshan showing him dancing to 80s Bollywood music during a gym session has gone viral.
The Bollywood star shared several videos of himself taking a break from a workout on his Instagram account.
The post, which was shared on Saturday, October 16, 2021, was liked by almost two million people in less than 24 hours.
Songs heard in the background include ‘Janu Meri Jaan’ from Shaan (1980) and ‘Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy Aaja’ from Disco Dancer (1982).
The first in the series of four clips show Roshan doing what someone at the gym refers to as a ‘garba’, or traditional Gujarati dance.
The actor is next seen not being able to help himself as someone speaks to him and before a trainer summons him back to work.
In the third video, he fully goes for it and in the final looks at the camera while singing and dancing along to the song.
The film star, known for his dancing skills, captioned the post: “When Bollywood hero suddenly hears 80s music in gym.”

A number of celebrities reacted to the videos, with actress Deepika Padukone referring to Roshan as a “Clown!”
Her husband Ranveer Singh as well as Ayushmann Khurrana, Kriti Sanon, Varun Dhawan, Dino Morea and Preity Zinta all responded with a series of emojis.
Various other celebrities, including Western ones, were amused by the post as well.
Welsh gym director Kris Gethin commented:
“I don’t think I’d advocate that between sets so enjoy it while you can.”
Meanwhile, Bollywood choreographer Piyush Bhagat said:
“Sir, lets rehearse together soon.”
Roshan, who is one of the highest-paid actors in the industry, last starred in the action movie War (2019) alongside Tiger Shroff.
He will also return as superhero Krrish for the fourth time.
The actor will then feature in Siddarth Anand’s action drama Fighter (2022) with Deepika Padukone, which is set to release sometime in 2022.
The 47-year-old is the son of filmmaker Rakesh Roshan and the grandson of music director Roshan Lal Nagrath.
He married Sussanne Khan, interior designer and daughter of actor Sanjay Khan, in 2000 but the couple divorced in 2014.
Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Khan have two sons together, Hrehaan and Hridhaan.
