The sequel to Bollywood film Krrish will not only see Hrithik Roshan play the lead on screen, but also act as the associate director of the movie. The actor had started off his career in Bollywood by assisting his father Rakesh Roshan in films like Koyla and Karan Arjun. And it would be after a gap of 14 years that he assists his father on the next Filmkraft venture.

Krrish"Hrithik always helps me out, whenever we work together," director Rakesh Roshan said. Hrithik, who will not be a part of the first schedule of this ambitious project, has decided not to sit at home. The actor will help his father in direction.

On the sets of the film that started rolling from December 1 at Filmistan Studios, Hrithik has been calling the shots and taking creative decisions alongside papa Roshan.

Once the first schedule of the Krrish sequel with Vivek Oberoi, Kangna Ranaut and Priyanka Chopra gets over, Hrithik will join the cast in front of the camera as well.

The 37-year-old actor, who has been suffering from back problems, is fast recovering.

Roshans have flown down a physiotherapist and a lady nutritionist from abroad for the same, sources close to the actor said.

He is enjoying the experience, though it does get tiring for him at time, they said.
