Filmmaker Rakesh Roshan who underwent surgery for cancer is hale and hearty and has started working on his popular 'Krrish' franchise. However, due to his medical condition, he has decided to postpone the Christmas 2020 release of 'Krrish4'.

During a media interaction recently, son Hrithik Roshan mentioned that his father Rakesh was getting better. As per the latest buzz, he is working to ensure that he will have a large team of creative people overseeing the script and is planning to mount the floors by early next year. He also wants to add a fresh new set of eyes to help him re-model the superhero to best suit the changing times of the comic book characters on the big screen. Reports claim that Roshan Sr. is taking the help of his grandsons Hrehaan (10) and Hridhaan (8) to brainstorm a storyline for the film and is trying to incorporate their versions into his story.

“Gudduji (Rakesh) is very keen that he makes the fourth part of the franchise, which will be way bigger than the first three parts - 'Koi Mil Gaya,' 'Krrish 2' and 'Krrish 3.' So the number of characters will need to increase, the number of enemies that Krrish has to fight will also increase so that the film looks larger and bigger. Also, with films like '2.0' and 'Avengers' already in the minds of the audiences the quality of the VFX will need to be way more higher than the earlier parts. Though it is a Bollywood film, one has to understand how this needs to be a bigger and possibly the best film Hrithik also has done,” says a source close to the development.

Rakesh had hinted at a possible fourth instalment to the franchise, back in 2013. Buzz around the film has it that super-villain Kaal, played by Vivek Oberoi will make his comeback and that Krrish himself might just get a sidekick or two. Also, it is being said that the film will be helmed by Sanjay Gupta, who had directed 'Kaabil' with Hrithik.
