Krrish Trivia

Krrish is an upcoming sci-fi Bollywood movie directed by Rakesh Roshan, slated for release on June 16, 2006. The film is a sequel to Koi... Mil Gaya. The movie will star Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Rekha, Naseeruddin Shah with a cameo by Preity Zinta, who was Hrithik’s love interest in Koi… Mil Gaya. The movie will be subsequently dubbed in Tamil and Telugu.

Rohit (Hrithik Roshan) and Nisha (Preity Zinta) are married and they have a kid. They both die in a car accident. The kid starts growing up in his grand mother's care. As he is growing up, he discovers that he has superpowers, which the alien, Jadoo in Koi... Mil Gaya, transferred into his father. The movie basically shows how he deals with his power and save the world from a villain, played by Naseeruddin Shah.

The movie was previously titled was "Koi ... Tumsa Nahin" - a song in the movie is still titled this way.

Hrithik Roshan received special training in Hong Kong with his trainer was Siu-Tung Ching, for the special leap he makes in this film. Apparently, his character has no powers, but is very strong and can leap 30 feet in the air. Hrithik Roshan had a near-fatal accident shooting for a scene in this movie, but escaped unharmed

While performing a stunt scene on a circus set Hrithik Roshan suffered a hamstring tear in his right leg. Doctors prescribed bed rest for two weeks but he continued shooting after two days using pain killers. He also singed his hair while running through a fire in another action scene.

Amrita Rao and Aishwarya Rai were also considered for the role of Priya. But Rakesh Roshan saw Priyanka's performance in a special screening of Aitraaz (2004) and was so impressed that he decided to cast her instead.

The song "Main Hoon Voh Aasman" is "inspired" by score from the game The Dig composed by Michael Land and Richard Wagner.

The father / son (director / actor) combination of Rakesh Roshan and Hrithik Roshan has worked very well in the past. Krrish will be Hrithik Roshan's third movie with his father Rakesh Roshan. Earlier, they have done Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai and Koi... Mil Gaya.

Interestingly, both Hrithik Roshan and Rakesh Roshan won filmfare awards for Best Actor and Best Director respectively for both Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai and Koi... Mil Gaya. Both Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai and Koi... Mil Gaya also won the Filmfare Best Film Award.
