India’s favourite caped crusader, Krrish, might soon make a daring return to the silver screen soon. Director Rakesh Roshan who will helm the upcoming film had recently opened up regarding Krrish 4’s development.
In conversation with Times of India, the filmmaker revealed that he was waiting for the ravages of the pandemic to abate before he started working on the project, hoping that it would be some time this year. The filmmaker also talked about he had planned something on a massive scale for the sequel and he did not want to experience any snags after he started the work on the film. Rakesh commented on how the pandemic had taken a toll on the film industry as a whole.
The filmmaker also opened up about his son, actor Hrithik Roshan, who starred in the films. He said that Hrithik carefully selects few films in a year he wants to work on, only choosing to do roles that inspire him.
Krrish 4 had been announced by Hrithik last year in June on the 15th anniversary of the 2006 film Krrish. Hrithik essays the role of the titular superhero in the film, a role which he reprised in the sequel as well.
For the uninitiated, the Krrish film series had started with the 2003 film, Koi... Mil Gaya which told the story of a man who is blessed with superhuman abilities by an alien he befriends. The Krrish films follow the story of the son of the protagonist of the 2003 film, who inherits the abilities of his deceased father and becomes a superhero.
In addition to Hrithik, the films also feature Priyanka Chopra who plays the female lead. All the films in the franchise have been directed by Rakesh.
