The west is known for adapting their films from popular animation series, but Rakesh Roshan plans on reversing the trend in India. The filmmaker has joined hands with Cartoon Network to make his popular film franchise, Krrish (2006) into four animation films that will be aired this year.
Rakesh says, "Cartoon Network, my production house Film Kraft Productions and Toonz Animation will come together to create these four movies." The films are not remakes of the original, but will be spin-offs that revolve around the life of an 11-year-old Krrish. "They will show Krrish discovering his powers and he will be seen with his mom, dad and granny, and even Jaadu. We wanted to keep all the characters from the films in this series," explains Rakesh.
