In 2003, Rakesh Roshan collaborated with son Hrithik Roshan for the Sci-Fi drama, Koi… Mil Gaya, and it turned out to be the highest grosser of the year. Three years later, the father-son duo made a sequel, Krrish, which became India’s first Superhero film and also a giant success.
The franchise continued when the Roshans gave the audience Krrish 3 in 2013, again a major money-spinner. They are now set for part four since the last one ended on a cliffhanger.
In Krrish 3, Hrithik Roshan played a triple role, that of Krishna Mehra, his father Rohit Mehra, and the Superhero Krrish. Pinkvilla now reports that this time, he may don as many as four characters.

A source informed the portal, “Krrish 4 is being mounted on a lavish scale. It will be a visual spectacle for everyone. The story has been locked and this time, it won’t just be a double role for Hrithik, but a quadruple one. Hrithik will be essaying four different characters in the film.”
The source further added, “While Krrish stays, they will also bring back Rohit from the land of dead and Jadoo from Koi Mil Gaya. It’s not known how Rakesh Roshan plans to incorporate the other two Hrithiks in the film, but it’s a full-on Hrithik show. The role of the leading lady is extremely powerful too this time.”
Rakesh Roshan rejects reports
Rakesh Roshan, the father of Hrithik has dismissed reports of his son having four different roles in an upcoming superhero film as baseless. The Krrish 4 director has said that the script is still in the preparation stages and a final version has not been agreed upon.
In an interview, Rakesh said, “Journalists have a lot of time these days to think up screenplay ideas at home. This is just a rumour, like many rumours 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.”
Hrithik Roshan last year pulled a blockbuster film titled ‘War’ which amazed his fans and haters alike. The craze over the actor’s star performance was so great that even Deepika Padukone couldn’t stop drooling over him after his hot stint in War. The action drama made his fans go crazy. And now they’re waiting anxiously for his next film, Krrish 4.
