Mumbai: It’s double dhamaka for all the die-hard fans of Hrithik Roshan for actor gets ready to play both hero and anti-hero in ‘Krrish 2’.
Rakesh Roshan is leaving no stone unturned in giving a great thrust to Hrithik Roshan’s sagging Bollywood fortunes, which is reeling under the yoke of recent Box Office dud ‘Kites’.
It is believed that Hrithik will play both a positive and negative character in ‘Krrish 2’. Talking to a news daily, a source said, “Both may be clones of each other. This would give the film a very interesting dimension and will take it to the next level.”
Earlier, Bollywood was rife with reports that Shah Rukh Khan would play the villain. However, the source adds, “‘Krrish 2’ requires a villain who has the heart of a child. Frankly, ‘Krrish 2’ is in the early stages now. Moreover, Rakesh is currently holidaying in Europe. He will meet Hrithik there, who has just finished shooting for ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.’ The script of ‘Krrish 2’ will get locked only next month after Rakesh returns to India. The final call on the negative role will be taken only then.”
Buzz has it that ‘Krrish 2’ will be fully loaded with state of the art heavy-duty special effects.
However, when contacted Robin Bhatt, the writer of ‘Krrish 2’ downplayed Hrithik’s double role as, “How can Hrithik play three roles in the same film? We are carrying forward the father-son legacy of ‘Krrish’ into ‘Krrish 2.’ The negative role will be essayed by a very big star.”
It is believed that the script of ‘Krrish 2’ will be finalised only after Rakesh Roshan returns to India.
