Hrithik Roshan is all set to return as Krrish in the fourth segment of the hit franchise.
This time, there will probably be a twist in the tale.
Hrithk may play both the protagonist and the antagonist in the film.
“For Hrithik’s superhero character to be effective, there must be a powerful antagonist, who can stand opposite the protagonist,” a source tells Subhash K Jha. “Hrithik has always been fascinated by the villain in the superhero films. He has expressed his desire to his father Rakesh Roshan to play both Krrish and hi adversary in Krrish 4. The idea is being developed. It now depends entirely on how the screenplay shapes up. Rakeshji will go ahead with Hrithik in both the main roles only if he likes the idea.”
Interestingly, Hrithik had played a double role in hi debut film, Kaho… Na Pyar Hai in 2000.
Now with the spectacular stardom that Hrithik rightfully owns, a double role for the star means double the box office collections.
Vivek Oberoi and Kangana Ranaut had played the villains in Krrish 3.
