The makers of sci-fi movie series Krrish (2006), which began with the release of Koi…Mil Gaya in 2003, is gearing up to produce the next instalment, titled Krrish 4. The project was announced last year by director-producer Rakesh Roshan.

However, since Rakesh Roshan was unable to lock the final draft on time, the movie could not mount the shooting floor as per schedule. But if sources are to be believed, Senior Roshan is about to finish the script soon and Krrish 4 will start rolling in 2019.

While Hrithik Roshan is set to return to play the iconic character of Krrish in the fourth instalment, the makers are yet to finalize the female lead opposite the superstar. Latest reports say that many actresses have started dropping by Rakesh Roshan’s office in Mumbai, expecting to bag the lead heroine role opposite Hrithik.

“There are a lot of actresses who are meeting Rakeshji. It all depends on whether they suit the film and the dates match whenever the script is ready and the pre-production done, for them to be cast in the film. Rakeshji is very clear about the kind of people he would like to cast in the film, but he does not mind meeting up with actors who call on him,” a source close to the project divulged.

We also hear that Priyanka Chopra, who played the female lead in the last two instalments of the series, and Katrina Kaif, who has worked with Hrithik on Bang Bang (2014), are front-runners in the race.

We are waiting to see who finally clenches the role.
