The father son duo of Rakesh and Hrithik have scored a hatrick with Krrish, and obviously expectations are mounting. The good news is that Roshan senior is already scripting the sequel Krrish 2. The bad news is that it will take a while to launch. “I’m still working on the script of Krrish 2 ,” inform Rakesh Roshan. “But until I am ready and comfortable I am not going to talk about it.” Obviously, the film with take the story forward. But will it also continue with the same generation or will he jump to the next generation like he did with Krrish? “It’s going to be a continuation of the story. Krrish 2 will continue in the same generation. There will be a lot more SFX in this one too,” says the filmmaker. 


We hear his company Filmkraft is also going to produce other films besides the sequel? “Yes, I will be making one more film, since the scripting of the sequel is going to take a while - [b]I will be starting my film with Hrithik mostly at the end of this year or next year.[/b] Since I have time on my hands, I have decided to make another film.” Obviously, he’s holding his cards close to his chest, but we hear he’s already signed Rajpal Yadav and Arshad Warsi in the lead roles. “I’m still in the planning stages for the other film,” is all he’s willing to part with. Will it be a small budget film, we enquire. “There is no small or big film. It’s either good or bad,” he laughs and sidesteps the question. What genre is he planning to dabble in this time? Will it be about more aliens, we kid? “It will have a comedy flavour to it,” says Roshan. Shifting tracks, we ask him about his reaction to Amitabh Bachchan’s statement that Dhoom 2 can be counted as Abhishek’s hit. “When a film runs, every character – whether it’s a small role or a big role – contributes to the final outcome,” 


Roshan says diplomatically. “A building cannot stand on one pillar. It’s needs the support of many pillars.” Even critics have agreed that it is Hrithik’s film all the way, we point out. “No film can run because of one actor. It is the combined effort of all the actors which goes into making it,” is his stubborn retort. “That’s just a way of saying things. People say this is either an Amitabh Bachchan film or a Hrithik film. But other actors too have contributed – to what extent one doesn’t know. If the other actors were not there, Hrithik can’t do anything alone.” By the looks of it Hrithik had worked extra hard on this one. “Hrithik works hard in every film,” says the proud father. What about the rumours that the Bachchans were upset with Hrithik’s kissing scene with Aishwarya Rai? “I don’t know about that,” Roshan clams up, then relents and explains, “I have not heard from them personally. I did read about this somewhere, but I would not like to comment on hearsay.”
