Hrithik Roshan was credited for becoming the first Indian superhero as Krrish which was released back in 2006. But even before that in 2003, Koi Mil Gaya gave India its first alien friend Jadoo. Latest reports have confirmed that the fourth part of the franchise is in the pre-production stage and it will be directed by Rakesh Roshan. Now, the latest news around the film is that Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies VFX has been asked to do the visual effects for the film as the fourth part is all set to bring Jadoo back in action.
A source close to the development told a leading daily, “As soon as they finalised the idea, Rakeshji began the pre-production work with Rajesh Roshan taking over the music department. 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.”
The source further revealed that Krrish 4 will have the superhero travel back in time to contact his father who will bring Jadoo back. Talking about the same, the source revealed, “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 (2003). While the cast is yet to be determined, Priyanka Chopra is not expected to reprise her role.” Simply super!
