Director of the Krrish franchise, Rakesh Roshan has refuted reports of Hrithik Roshan playing 4 characters in the next superhero film. Blaming it on a journalist’s imagination, the director said the script is yet to be finalized.
In a conversation with Bollywood Hungama, Rakesh said, “Journalists have a lot of time these days to think up screenplay ideas at home. This is just a rumor, as many rumors about Krrish 4. There is absolutely no truth to it. The script is in the process of evolving. It is still very early. When we do lock in on certain specifics in the plot, I’ll share them with you.”
Earlier, Krrish 3 saw Hrithik Roshan playing two characters in the superhero film. Hrithik played the scientist Rohit Mehra and his son Krishna Mehra both of whom crusade against the evil to protect the earth. While it was shown that Rohit dies in the film, fans speculated he will be brought back in the next franchise.
Rakesh Roshan On Hrithik’s birthday in 2018 took to Twitter to announce the release of Krrish 4 in Christmas 2020. “Today is perhaps the best day to make the release day of Krrish 4 official. Christmas 2020 it is. A gift for all of you on Hrithik’s birthday. Happy Birthday @iHrithik,” he had tweeted.
However, later that year Rakesh Roshan was diagnosed with throat cancer and the movie was pushed. According to Bollywood Hungama, the script of Krrish 4 will be completed by the end of 2020. The movie is set to go on floors in mid-2021.
Meanwhile, Hrithik was last seen in the super successful film War alongside Tiger Shroff and Vani Kapoor.
