Actor Hrithik Roshan, who plays a superhero in his filmmaker father’s movie Krrish 3, says his dad Rakesh Roshan is his superhero.
Hrithik also credited his father with popularising the superhero genre in Bollywood with the Krrish franchise, which started with the film Koi Mil Gaya. “I am thankful to my dad. If he didn't exist, there would have been no superhero genre in the Indian cinema. He has broken all the barriers and has made it possible. This is because of the power of his conviction. For me, my father is my superhero,” he said during the launch of Krrish 3 merchandise.
Is he a superhero for his sons? “I always hope they see me as a superhero. Being a father is the biggest opportunity to be a superhero in your life,” he said.
