Mumbai: One of the most eagerly awaited films of the summer, Rakesh Roshan's Krrish, has many firsts to its credit. 

To begin with, Krrish is the first Bollywood film whose entire song and video can be downloaded on your Hutch phone. This means no short clips, no antara mukhda nonsense, you can have the whole song.

The director says he's creating yet another milestone by releasing dubbed versions of Krrish in Telugu, Tamil and English simultaneously with the Hindi version.

"We've dubbed the film simultaneously. I always thought we're looking at the West and why not in India?," says the director.

Another first for Krrish is action director Tony Ching Siu-tung, the man behind the breathtaking action sequences in such mega-successful crossover hits as Shaolin Soccer and The House of Flying Daggers. 

Bollywood may have tackled science-fiction now and then, but with Krrish, Rakesh Roshan will be the first Bollywood filmmaker to have produced a sequel to a sci-fi blockbuster.

In Krrish, the filmmaker's superstar son Hrithik Roshan plays a gifted man, who has been bestowed superpowers by an alien. He is strong, fast and agile. 

The story follows the adventures and the romance of his character with Priyanka Chopra playing his love interest, and Naseeruddin Shah in the villain's role. 

"We have not seen a character like Hrithik's even it Hollywood films," says papa Roshan who is proud of the fact that his son has performed most of his stunts himself. 

And it is not just his son, Roshan says, "Everyone in the film has gone that extra mile."

The music for the film has been composed by Rajesh Roshan. And the man says that the unconventional music is something to watch out for: "The music of Krrish is against today's trend. And if you like it, it is very moving."

As the film is set for worldwide release in June, Roshan is leaving no stone unturned to ensure that the world appreciates Krrish the same way that they did its prequel, Koi Mil Gaya in 2003.
