It is this character’s son who in 2006, becomes the protagonist of Krrish with Hrithik taking on both father and son roles in the film. This led to Krrish 3, released in 2013 and was a hit at the Bollywood box office.
The film was originally slated to be released on Christmas 2018 against Zero, starring Shah Rukh Khan. However, the Roshans opted to let SRK have his day and with Salman Khan‘s Kick 2 set for Christmas 2019, they have opted to release Krrish 4 in 2020.
