Hrithik Roshan is a self-confessed fan of King of Pop Michael Jackson and on Sunday, the 44-year-old actor shared a picture from his childhood, in which he can be seen entertaining an audience with his dance moves. Hrithik revealed that the picture was taken in 1982 when MJ's Thriller has released. "That's an inspired 8 year old me doing nonsense, but to Mom and Dad, I was Jackson that night," he wrote. Instagram users gave a thumbs-up to Hrithik. "You are Bollywood's Jackson sir," read one comment while another Instagram user wrote: "You are inspiration for many peoples many dancers sir."
