It has been 7 years since Krrish 3 came. Now, according to the reports, Hrithik Roshan is gearing up to wear the famous mask again. The work on Krrish 4 was put on hold as filmmaker Rakesh Roshan was diagnosed with throat cancer last year. But now, the filmmaker has successfully made use of the lockdown time to develop a script of the movie. In the fourth instalment of the Krrish franchise, the superhero is all set to time travel to bring back his father Rohit Mehra and his alien friend, Jadoo.
While the filmmaker was exploring different concepts, according to a report by Mid-Day, the trade source reveals—
As soon as they finalised the idea, Rakeshji began the pre-production work with Rajesh Roshan taking over the music department.
He further added—
Given the movie’s ambitious theme, the director has entrusted Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies with the visual effects. He intends to introduce an army of super villains who will battle the hero and has hired a Hollywood designer to give a distinct look to each baddie.
Like the previous two films, Hrithik Roshan will play a double role — as Krrish and his father Rohit Mehra. The story of Krrish 4 will focus on Krrish getting his father back from dead, as he was shown as being killed in the earlier movie.
Reportedly, Priyanka Chopra is not expected to reprise her role in the fourth instalment.
Rohit is integral to the story as he is the only person who can contact Jadoo. Rakeshji has designed the script cleverly to incorporate the much loved alien from Koi Mil Gaya . While the cast is yet to be determined, Priyanka Chopra is not expected to reprise her role.
The science-fiction movie is expected to go on floors in January 2021.
