Mumbai: Actor Hrithik Roshan, who Tuesday unveiled `Kid Krrish`, the animated movie based on Bollywood movie `Krrish`, says the animated version is better than the latter.
"The only difference between the two is `Kid Krrish` is better than Krrish," Hrithik told reporters at the unveiling.
`Kid Krrish` will be premiered on Cartoon Network Oct 2 at 12 noon.
"`Kid Krrish` can jump and do everything without any help. The similarities, I feel, is we have the child alive inside us," added the actor, saying his two sons - Hrehaan and Hridhaan - have already seen `Kid Krrish`.
"Both my kids have seen the first movie of `Kid Krrish` and they have fallen in love with it. So it`s already successful."
Filmmaker Rakesh Roshan`s Filmkraft Productions partnered with Turner International India and Kerala-headquartered Toonz Animation to create four animated movies based on hit superhero movie `Krrish`.
The partnership was announced earlier this year and planned to bring India`s favourite superhero `Krrish` in an animated avtar.
Rakesh Roshan said that for the first time a Bollywood character has got an animated version.
"The character of Krrish has been idolized by every child in India and has become an iconic superhero. We believe that `Kid Krrish` will be the new superhero for a whole new generation of children and a benchmark in animated series of live action films," he said.
Currently the Roshans are gearing up for the release of `Krrish 3`.
Slated to come out Nov 4, this is the third film in the franchise that began with `Koi Mil Gaya` in 2003.
