There is not an ounce of doubt that ‘Krrish’ is the best superhero movie franchise that Bollywood has ever produced. While Hollywood swarms with a number of superheroes from Batman to Spiderman, we are proud to have Krrish, our one, and only desi superhero. After the runaway success of ‘Krrish 3’ (2014), Rajesh Roshan, the creator of the series, announced its fourth installment last year. Titled ‘Krrish 4’, the project is still in the scripting stage and is expected to begin production early next year. If latest reports are to be believed, Senior Roshan has some bigger plans for his much-loved franchise. He is, reportedly, working on not one but two sequels of the series which he plans to shoot and edit simultaneously. Well, if the report turns out to be true, ‘Krrish’ fans cannot be happier than this.
Buzz has it that a team of talented international technicians, animators and action co-ordinators has been hired to work day and night on their respective departments and come up with ideas that take the franchise to newer heights in terms of action and VFX. Roshan plans to make sequels which can give Hollywood movies a run for their money. While Hrithik Roshan continues to play the loved character of Krrish in the movie, reports suggest that the makers are planning to rope in fresh faces to play baddies. There have also been reports that ‘Krrish 4’ will have two leading ladies and Priyanka Chopra, who has been a part of ‘Krrish’ and ‘Krrish 3’, and Katrina Kaif are in talks with the makers.
However, when director Rakesh Roshan was contacted to confirm if he is really helming two sequels of Krrish simultaneously, he informed, “Scripting is still underway and it is too early to comment.” Reportedly, FilmKraft has a team of four-five writers who are working on two stories simultaneously.
Meanwhile, Hrithik Roshan is currently shooting for his next film ‘Super 30’, helmed by Vikas Bahl.
