Bollywood superstar Hrithik Roshan, who separated from his wife Sussanne Roshan recently, turned 40 years of age on Friday.


Thanking his fans for their birthday wishes on Twitter, Hrithik posted last night: "Thank you beautiful people for all your love... I'm going to fly high tonite! Thank you..."

Wishing the actor, celebrity jewellery designer Farah Khan tweeted: "Happy birthday to my darling Brother @ihrithik. May you go from strength to strength. Health wealth..."

His birthday celebration came a few days after Hrithik and Sussanne decided to part ways ending their 17-year-old relationship.

"Sussanne has decided to separate from me and end our 17 year relationship. This is a very trying time for the entire family and I request the media and the people to grant us our privacy at this time. I do not wish this news to disempower my fans and the people about the institution of marriage in any way," Hrithik had said in a statement on Dec 13.

Although his personal life faced severe turmoil towards the end of 2013, the superhero's last film 'Krishh 3' made a whopping business and had entered the Rs. 200 crore club.

Hrithik had appeared as a child actor in several films throughout the 1980's, and made his film debut in a leading role in 'Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai' in 2000.

His performance in the film earned him Filmfare Award for Best Actor and Best Male Debut.

The actor starred in blockbusters 'Koi... Mil Gaya' and its sequel, 'Krrish', both of which won him numerous Best Actor awards.

The junior Roshan received his third Filmfare Award for Best Actor in 2006 for his performance in the action film 'Dhoom 2', and his fourth for his performance in 'Jodhaa Akbar', which also won him the award at the Golden Minbar International Film Festival.

The actor has received critical acclaim for his work in 'Guzaarish', 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' and 'Agneepath'.

After tasting huge success with 'Krishh 3', Hrithik is now gearing up for his upcoming film 'Bang Bang', which is scheduled to hit the screens in mid 2014.
