Superhero stuff can be scary. Rakesh Roshan, producer-director of the under-production Krishh 2, is overwhelmed by the costs involved in the fancy special effects in the film. His son Hrithik, who’s playing the lead, says that his dad wakes up every morning, saying, “Maybe I shouldn’t make this movie, it’s just too big and difficult.” He adds, “The conversation lasts a minute but it takes place everyday.”
The superhero sequel to the 2006 original has already raised huge expectations and is fetching skyrocketing prices. The music rights went for Rs. 6cr and the satellite rights for Rs. 38cr, surpassing RA.One’s Rs. 35cr sale. Bidding is expected to be high on the overseas rights too. Action director Tony Ching Sui Tung has flown in from Hong Kong and is spending six hours a day brainstorming on the stunts. “We’re planning something that’s never been attempted on the Indian screen before. If we can pull it off, it’ll be phenomenal,” says Hrithik. The film goes on the floor in November.
