Hrithik Roshan Has THREE Thumbs!
Listen to article

Yes, Hrithik Roshan is and Meena Kumari was a polydectyl. It means a person having more than normal number of fingers and thumbs in hands or feet or both. There is nothing abnormal/unusual (unless you feel so) about it except it occurs in rare few humans. One may feel odd but that's the way it is.

Hrithik has two thumbs on his right hand. The additional thumb is a small extension which curves inwards towards his main thumb. Incidentally he also stammers and was diagnosed with sclerosis. He says he always felt abnormal due to these but he gradually overcame his psychological barrier.

Meena Kumari, yesteryear actor, also had six fingers on her right hand. But it was always kept in mind to not show her right hand fingers in any of the films she had done. It was also said she had only four fingers in left hand. Some even said she had lost the little finger in the right hand therefore she had only four fingers.

Whatever it may be, six fingers seem to be lucky. These people are highly talented and achieve great success in life. What say you?
