On the occasion of Hrithik Roshan’s birthday his father took to twitter and announced the release date of highly waited Krrish 4. In the wake of getting festivals for a release date, Rakesh Roshan chose Christmas of 2020 to come out with his film. Krrish 3 was a massive blockbuster as there is literally no functioning superhero franchise in India. Krrish 3 came out in 2013 and despite of getting sincerely bad reviews it did humongous business on the box office and since than at least the film trade is awaiting the next installment in the franchise.
Krrish, as a superhero franchise has absolutely no competition because there is not even an announcement of any other actor wanting to do a superhero film. Shahrukh Khan initiated himself once to build a mega budget superhero franchise by the name of Ra.One the end of which clearly indicated a sequel but it’s been a decade since the thought of next part came in Shahrukh’s mind strongly enough to make an announcement. One of the most important thing in a superhero film is the use of VFX and that was plainly horrific in Krrish 3 as Indian entertainment industry does not have enough financial power to compete with western technology driven films.
Hindi films or Indian films are largely period if an epic is being made because of immensely rich mythology hence focus on superhero film has not been there. The announcement of Krrish 4’s release might just be the most foreseeing planning to come out with a film in Hindi film industry. No other producer has really made an announcement 3 years ago to release a film on a particular date. Shooting of Krrish 4 has not started yet as Rakesh Roshan has been working on the script for a long time now. Krrish came in 2006 and Krrish 3 in 2013 so the indication is clear that makers of Krrish take their time before they come out with another one.
