With a warm hug, Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan Sunday thanked the doctor who cured him of his stammer.

While inaugurating Htithik Roshan Wallpapersthe state-of-the-art Kataben Balwantai Audilogy Centre at the Bombay West Rotary Institute for the Deaf, the actor hugged Ramesh Oza, who had helped him overcome the affliction.

Oza, who is the director of the centre, said Hrithik donated Rs.100,000 to the facility.

As a child, Hrithik had a speech impediment that he tried to get over by staying up late at night reading books, repeating dialogues while watching a film or even through meditation.

According to Oza, the star was always in touch with him and frequently called him.

"In spite of his busy schedule he agreed to come here," said the doctor.

"It scares me to see little children in hospitals undergoing treatment, but I'm glad this centre is equipped with some of the best equipment," Hrithik told IANS.

"I love kids and would love to do more than what I can for them," he added.

The star mingled with the crowd, allowing people to photograph him and take his autograph. His warmth lit faces of the teachers in the school.

Among other famous personalities who overcame stuttering were Abraham Lincoln, Adolf Hitler, Marilyn Monroe, Churchill, Shah Rukh Khan, Dilip Vengsarkar, Dilip Kumar and Kishore Kumar.
