The Krrish franchise, written, directed and produced by the actor’s father Rakesh Roshan, started with the release of the 2003 film Koi… Mil Gaya. The story revolved around the characters Rohan Mehra and Nisha, played by Hrithik Roshan and Preity Zinta, meeting an extra-terrestrial creature that they name Jadoo and Rohan gaining superpowers thereafter. The film is considered to be the origin story of superhero Krrish, who is the son of Rohan and Nisha.
Krrish, which released in 2006, revolved around the superhero’s quest to stop a scientist from misusing his father’s IQ to build a computer that could foresee the future. The film was followed by Krrish 3 in 2013.
Earlier in 2018, Rakesh Roshan had announced on Twitter that Krrish 4 would be a Christmas 2020 release. However, the director’s fight with cancer and the ongoing pandemic delayed the film. Reports had stated at the time that Quantico actor Priyanka Chopra would return for the fourth instalment of the series. However, there has been no confirmation regarding this.
While Chopra is yet to react to the sequel announcement, her team took to Twitter on Wednesday to celebrate 15 years of Krrish.
Krrish 4 is expected to have Roshan reprising his superhero role.
Meanwhile, the Super 30 actor is currently working on the film Fighter, directed by Siddharth Anand and co-starring Deepika Padukone. Roshan will be seen playing the role of an Air Force pilot in Fighter.
He also has the sequel of the 2019 film War, which is yet to go on floors.
