It is final, though not yet official. Hrithik Roshan will once again be directed by father Rakesh Roshan. But this time it is not another film in the Krrish series, but something else altogether. According to sources in the know Rakesh Roshan and his son are coming together for the fifth time to do an intense love story.
Says the source, “Rakeshji has not done a full-fledged love story since Kaho Na…Pyar Hai in which he launched his son. After that they got busy with the Krrish series. But now Rakeshji feels the need to reclaim his romantic roots with Hrithik.”
Though neither father Rakesh nor son Hrithik Roshan is willing to admit it yet, the love story is something that the father and son owe to themselves to one another, and to the audience.
Explains the source, “Rakeshji produced an intense love story Kites for his son. But Anurag Basu made a hash of it. Now Rakeshji wants to direct a passionate love story. The script has been finalized and the project goes on the floors early next year.”
Hrithik has a major fan base among women. But he has done very few pure love stories. His Dad’s Kaho Na…Pyar Hai and Ashutosh Gowariker’s Jodha Akbhar come to mind immediately.
