The actor recently returned to his former high school in order to speak to the pupils and publicise Agneepath.
A source told Mumbai Mirror: "He is someone who hated going to school as a kid and would have never imagined that he would visit school once again. His patent excuse was to fall sick. However, this time, he was extremely emotional when he visited the school and the places where he would hang out.
"Hrithik had some really fond memories of Bombay Scottish and was extremely thrilled to be there after so many years. He visited his old classrooms, and the teachers told him how he was probably the 'quietest student' they had ever had."
Roshan also had a special meeting with his two favourite English teachers, who are now retired.
"Hrithik became extremely emotional, and it took him some time to get around to speaking about Agneepath for which he had primarily come," added the source.
In June, Roshan began taking sign language classes on top of his shooting schedule for Agneepath in order to communicate with hearing-impaired contestants on his TV show Just Dance.
The trailer for Agneepath, which co-stars Sanjay Dutt and Priyanka Chopra, surpassed one million views on YouTube in September.
