The superhero returns

Hrithik Roshan is looking forward to a sequel to Krrish.

Hrithik Roshan does not really need Krrish to be dubbed a “superhero” because his fans and many of his directors certainly think he is one. The actor has a calm confidence about him as he begins to talk about his forthcoming release directed by father Rakesh Roshan. Excerpts from a chat: You have already shown Krrish to friends like Karan Johar, Shah Rukh Khan and his kids.

Yes, and I am happy with the reactions so far. Children have already incorporated Krrish in their games and animated fights. They have also started coming up with ideas on who Krrish should fight in Part 3 and why. Do you have plans for a sequel?

Yes, it’s a wish and the success of Krrish will ensure a sequel. I really want a part three to be there. See, Krrish is not really a superhero; he’s just laying the foundation for a superhero. He is on a personal mission and this film is more about his birth. We had to have a strong foundation for Krrish because there was no basis in comic books etc. In part 3, Krrish will take on the re sponsibility of taking on the world. So what are Krrish’s unique powers?

He does have powers but they are a departure from what one has seen so far. All his abilities are enhanced and the extent of his powers keeps growing and becoming more real as he gets more emotionally charged. Your accident must have been quite frightening — falling while performing a stunt in Singapore?

I just didn’t let the fear set in. After I came down I decided to go up on the wires almost immediately.
