Hrithik Roshan: “I will be taking some time off to recover completely”

Priyanka Chopra and Hrithik Roshan in London for Krrish 3 with Sunny Malik (2)Hrithik Roshan, who is currently in a good space post the tremendous response to his superhero flick Krrish 3, has decided to take some time off before he ventures into the studios again.

Roshan’s latest release Krrish 3 has become the highest grossing film ever in India.

Putting speculation about his health issues and other matters to rest, Hrithik says, “I am extremely overwhelmed by the tremendous support and love extended by everyone to Krrish 3. It’s been a great journey. Before I get ready to resume the shooting of my next, Bang Bang, in early January 2014 and later Shuddhi, as both are physically demanding, I will be taking some time off to recover completely from the recurring headaches that have resurfaced in the last couple of weeks.”

“I am confident that your love and prayers will heal me completely. I wish everyone a great end to 2013 and a fabulous start to 2014,” added the Agneepath actor.

Hrithik Roshan visited single screen theaters after the release of his latest blockbuster Krrish 3. The popular actor was amazed by the response that he received from the audience as he was mobbed for quite some time at a venue.

Hrithik says, “Yes, that did happen. Frankly, I can only take it as a compliment. It’s all good and I guess such things happen.”

The actor adds that he’s overwhelmed after he saw the crowd cheering for the film in the theater. Hrithik says, “The kind of response people have given to the film is insane. It’s absolutely overwhelming and I don’t get to experience this often. I have a few releases — once or twice in a year or two — so for me, looking at all of this is amazing.”

Hrithik goes on to add that Bollywood actors enjoy a fan following that actors in the west aren’t able to experience.
“I am quite certain that actors in Hollywood will be really jealous of this (the attention). The way Indians shower love on us, with all the hooting, whistling and cheering, you don’t get to see it anywhere else. Guys in Hollywood won’t ever get to experience this.

Krrish 3 is in UK cinema now.

Interview: Hrithik Roshan & Priyanka Chopra talk to BollyNewsUK

Bollywood stars Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra descended into London last month to promote their upcoming film Krrish 3.

Krrish 3 is the sequel of Krrish (2006) and the third film in the superhero franchise which started with Koi Mil Gaya in 2003.

The two actors spoke to Bollywood reporter Sunny Malik about the film, its music, crossing-over and much more…

Priyanka Chopra and Hrithik Roshan in London for Krrish 3 with Sunny Malik (7)

You went to Apple Store on Regent Street for a special podcast. How did the association between Krrish 3 and Apple come about?

Wow, that just came out of nowhere (laughs). A lot of records have been broken by Krrish 3 and I think, somewhere Apple took notice of the various aspects of the film that were gaining curiosity all over the world. We had amazing number of hits on YouTube for the trailer and we had a live Facebook launch.

Priyanka: Also, Krrish 3 is a very tech-heavy movie. Apple is synonymous with innovation and so is Krrish 3. It made for a great association.

Hrithik said that you didn’t like the first version of the trailer and he had it changed. Did you expect the new trailer to go viral then?

Priyanka: I have always believed that this film has the potential of being one of the best films that India has created in the sci-fi genre. I also believe that it is one of Rakesh Roshan’s best films. It has everything that you need in a film; a great story, a superhero, a villain who has an army of mutants and most importantly, it has soul. I always knew that the film has all this but I never thought that the trailer will be watched over seventeen million times just on YouTube. It has beaten the trailer views of films like Thor and The Avengers despite of being a Hindi language film.


In Krrish we saw a lot of romance and comedy. How much of that will we see in Krrish 3?

Hrithik: It eventually boils down to how entertained you are when you watch the film. Krrish 3 is entertainment from the word ‘go’. We are introducing a super villain who has his own growth as a character. I won’t reveal much but there is a growth to Vivek Oberoi’s character which will shock you. We are also introducing a new generation of villains to our audiences called ‘Manvars’.

Priyanka: They are Kaal’s army who are a mutation of animals and humans which is really interesting. There are also laughs in the film like you asked. We also have Rohit, who is adorable.


Priyanka Chopra and Hrithik Roshan in London for Krrish 3 with Sunny Malik (6)

You are playing a triple role according to reports…

Hrithik: It’s actually two and a half as I play Rohit, Krishna and Krrish.


You will be seen in two roles in the film as well…

Priyanka: Again, it’s actually one and a half (laughs). There is a duality in my character. It takes a spin from good to evil.


You are also an international recording artist now. Did you give inputs to what the soundtrack should be like?

Priyanka: No, not at all. It’s not my place. This is Rakesh Roshan’s movie and he is way too senior for me to ever say something like that.

Hrithik: That’s a thought that never crossed my mind. Next time, I should take you up on that.

Priyanka: You should (laughs).

Priyanka Chopra and Hrithik Roshan in London for Krrish 3 with Sunny Malik (5)Your film Kites was touted to be a ‘cross-over’ film. Now people are talking about the international standard of the special effects of Krrish 3. How do you see your film doing abroad?

Hrithik: No film can ever be made to cross over. A film is a film and if it’s liked by audiences across the borders and it transcends the boundaries of languages, then it has a life of its own. You really can’t make a film to cross-over. When we made Kites, it was not an attempt to cross-over. We were just being honest to the film we wanted to make. People assumed that it was made as a cross-over film because it had a lot of English in it. That was just out of logic because the central characters spoke two different languages. Anyways, Krrish 3 is already crossing over to audiences that are not used to Hindi cinema. If that is something that we go by, then we have a lot to look forward to in terms of the scope of the market of Indian films.


Why should UK audiences go and watch the film?

Priyanka: Well, the audiences are already familiar with most of the characters like mine and Hrithik’s. Added to that, we have a new aspect of sci-fi to which is not something Hindi cinema audiences see usually. It’s a big super hero franchise which has been loved with a great story along with Indian values. Also, which superhero can dance? Tell Iron Man to break into krumping… That ain’t gonna happen (sic) (laughs).


Krrish 3 releases on 1st November.

To get the healthier yet older look for Rohit in Krrish 3, Hrithik hired Mike Stringer with whom he had worked earlier.

Hrithik had to start his make up early in the morning to make it for a 9 am shift as it used to take three hours to get the right look for him. The Kites actor even faces back problems  due to sitting still for three hours for the make up but didn’t let that come in the way of getting things right!

Krrish 3 is out in UK cinemas today!

Priyanka and Hrithik at Apple Store - Copyright Sunny MalikEver since the launch of its motion poster, producer-director Rakesh Roshan’s Krrish 3 has rapidly advanced along the digital marketing route. Thanks to its campaign on the internet, including a chat session with lead actor Hrithik Roshan on a social networking site, the third instalment of the popular superhero franchise has managed to grab the attention of over 63 million users across the globe.

Tech giant Apple has now signed up with the filmmakers — a first-of-its-kind tieup for Bollywood. The content — including music, video and apps — of the movie is available in a new dedicated area on their online store, iTunes.

 In fact, the movie is among its biggest Diwali promotions to run internationally — including the US and UK. Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra made a special appearance at their store in London on October 15.

Rakesh Roshan says, “This association takes Bollywood to a new standard. It gives us a platform no (Hindi) film has got before. It’s a great feeling that people from all over the world are accepting Krrish as a franchise.”

Hrithik became B-Town’s first actor to be part of the ‘Meet The Filmmaker’ series that has, in the past, included the likes of Colin Firth, Jude Law, Matthew McConaughey, Robert Pattinson, Drew Barrymore and Amanda Seyfried. For those who have missed the event, a video podcast is available for download. “It is opening so many doors for promotions and music, too,” adds Roshan.

Incidentally, the trailer of the movie — that also stars Priyanka Chopra, Vivek Oberoi and Kangana Ranaut — has apparently registered 17 million hits till date.

Hrithik Roshan’s secret of being Strong + Photos of ‘Krrish 3’ Singapore promotions

Everyone feels that Hrithik is a very strong person. Well, he is but as a teenager Hrithik was shy and a loner. His tears would flow easily when someone teased him at school.

However, Hrithik has a strong father who never allowed him to be affected by his weaknesses. Rakesh Roshan believes that people go through lot of struggle in their lives and still manage to come out joyful.

Even Priyanka Chopra commented recently that Hrithik lives in his head. Hrithik feels that its natural to live in fear of the unexpected but one should welcome it as opportunities to rise above.He believes that Krrish has a great impact on him. It’s beyond the mask, the caves and the way he needs to jump from one building to the other. It is all about the values and goals he lives by.

In spite of having problems of speech impediment, knee problem, a broken shoulder and now a hole in the brain, Hrithik chooses to be positive and because of his consistent practice of imbibing the right values of a strong man did not allow a single second of fear to enter him.

Hrithik believes that if your attitude towards a problem is right you get all the strength to surpass everything.

The actor along with Priyanka Chopra will be visiting London on Monday to meet their fans at Cineworld in Feltham.

The song is in the voice of Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal with lyrics penned by Sameer Anjaan. The music of Krrish 3 is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

Starring Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranaut, Vivek Oberoi and Rekha, Krrish 3 releases in UK cinemas through Eros International on 4th November.



‘Krrish 3’ to release on 1st November!

Dil Tu Hi Bata - Krrish 3 (2)Krrish 3, which was to release on 4th November is all set to release on 1st November now. Starring Hrithik Roshan,Priyanka Chopra,Kangana Ranaut and Vivek Oberoi, the film is directed and produced by Rakesh Roshan.

The change in date was suggested by his distributors, exhibitors and overseas associates (Eros International).

 Rakesh Roshan confirms the news by saying, “This year, Dhanteras, the first day of Diwali, is on November 1. And it’s a holiday for most people. My distributors and exhibitors, even those overseas, wondered why I was not making use of the holidays. Fortunately or unfortunately, it’s for the first time in many years that Diwali and Lakshmi Puja are falling on Sunday. No one knows the repercussions of a pre-Diwali release. But since everyone is keen on a Friday release, I’ll be releasing Krrish 3 on November 1.”

Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra are set to promote the film in the UK next week.

Hrithik-Kangana’s romantic song

The latest romantic track Dil Tu Hi Bata from Krrish 3 featuring Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut was shot in Jordan.

We heard that the film crew faced a lot of trouble while shooting for the song as they took hours to reach different locations and faced sandstorms.

They had to spray themselves with insect repellent before every take, while shooting at the Dead Sea, as there were thousand of flies that troubled them.

Krrish 3 is set to release in UK cinemas on 1st November 2013 through Eros International.

‘Krrish 3’ was Hrithik Roshan’s Biggest Challenge

Krrish 3 PosterHrithik Roshan is back in his superhero guise once more in the hotly anticipated follow-up to Koi Mil Gaya and Krrish Krrish 3. The film will dazzle audiences with a thrilling roller-coaster ride of visual effects, stunts and, of course, the very gorgeous Mr Roshan in his superhero costume!.

Speaking about Krrish 3, Hrithik Roshan has revealed that the film was one of his most challenging and demanding to do. The superstar spent a grueling four hours each day in make-up and costume to achieve his unique look complete with high-grade prosthetics and body contour suit.

Portraying as many as three strikingly different looks, Hrithik says the journey for Krrish 3 has been a fairly challenging but rewarding one. Commenting on the hard work involved in making the film, he said: “Krrish 3 is the most difficult film. I play two roles. If I want victory again, I’ll have to go through the battle again.”

The shooting of Krrish 3 has tested Hrithik Roshan’s mettle to the fullest, but the talented actor of such mega hits as Dhoom 2, likes challenges of all kinds. The spiritual actor believes that whenever something gets difficult it is his axis point to growth. “The finest steel must go through the hottest fire” is the modular he lives by.

The visual effects team found the shot in which Hrithik jumps from a bridge, which is 2000 meters above sea level, the most difficult shot to accomplish. That one sequence required around 3,000 different shots which were then put under various algorithms to see what would look most natural. A dedicated team of 35 people were concentrating on this one scene for four months. The challenge was to make Hrithik leap in the air for 45 seconds and then land him in an upright position. Keeping in mind minute specifics like: How would a body land? Where would his feet touch the ground? At what speed? And what should be a superhero posture after he takes that leap?

“It was difficult playing many roles in Krrish 3” says Hrithik. “The script of Krrish 3 has been such that it challenged each and every character and department from the production to the creative”.

Krrish 3, which is directed by supremo Rakesh Roshan, will be the third instalment in the franchise after Koi Mil Gaya (2003) and Krrish (2006). Krrish 3 releases in UK cinemas on 1st November 2013

‘Krrish 3’ trailer gets 14 Million views

Krrish3 UK ReleaseThe Krrish 3 trailer is breaking records of two Hollywood superhero movies in trailer views.

Thor and Avengers had about 4 million and 6 million views receptively on video-sharing website YouTube. Krissh 3 is breaking the records by getting 14 million views in just 16 days.

Hrithik Roshan could not be happier. “It is a glimpse of how much lies beyond the barriers of the conventional. It’s an effort to raise the bar. And people are curious as it is the first complete Indian high budget VFX-heavy superhero movie. I guess these could justify the incredible response to the first promo,” he says.

Director Rakesh Roshan adds that it is a ‘super feat’. He says, “I am humbled at this overwhelming response. It is only because of the ‘super’ brand called Krrish. I’m showing them Krrish again after seven years. I thought people would have forgotten but they want to see it again! I knew people would like the trailer but not to this extent. This one was the toughest to make as with Krrish 3 I went to a completely new genre so I was learning new things.”

Krrish 3 releases in UK cinemas through Eros International on 4th November 2013. 

Hrithik Roshan is a Workaholic

Hrithik Roshan - Krrish 3 Launch (4)It’s just been a month and a few days since Hrithik Roshan’s brain surgery. The actor was discharged on the 11th of July and post that he resumed work to wrap up his superhero film, Krrish 3.

No one could say that Hrithik Roshan has undergone a brain surgery when they saw him on August 5th at the  trailer launch of Krrish 3.

Hrithik Roshan along with father Rakesh Roshan has been working round the clock for the past four weeks on the post-production of this much-awaited film.

Hrithik says, “Problems are always going to exist. Everything will be taken away from you except the freedom of choosing your attitude in any given environment. Once you get that right, creating results becomes effortless.”

Hrithik adds, “For the past four weeks, I’ve been sitting on the post (production) and VFX (visual effects). I’m going to make the best of this time given to me. Even with a hole in my brain, my spirit is intact. The surgery has reaffirmed new values. It could not tie me down,”

Hrithik’s break won’t come until October, when Hrithik — along with his family, including mother Pinky and sister Sunaina — is set to attend the wedding of close family friends Kimi and Pamela Grover’s son, Kunal, in Cannes.

Hrithik says, “I’m doing my best to meet all the deadlines in time, so that the entire Roshan family can be at the wedding.”

Hrithik Roshan is deeply influenced by Anil Kapoor’s acting style

Krrish 3 Trailer LaunchHrithik Roshan at the trailer launch of Krrish 3, where Anil Kapoor was present, said that he no longer refers to him as Anil Uncle: “I have dropped the uncle; because there’s no way he can look like an uncle,” Hrithik said.

 Rakesh Roshan had requested Anil Kapoor to host the trailer launch of Krrish 3 to which he agreed immediately.

Hrithik at the event said that he was deeply influenced by Anil Kapoor’s acting style.

 Addressing Anil Kapoor, Hrithik said, “Thank you… for being such an incredible influence on me as an actor. When I started off, I remember every single person who was observing me told me, ‘You are so much like Anil Kapoor.’ I was his assistant for four years while my dad was working with him, so my entire model of acting is based on him.”

However, Kapoor laughs it off, saying, “Everyone has their own style. But when Hrithik said that, I was moved. I respect him, because hardworking people have always impressed me. When they were working together for Kaho Na Pyaar Hai (2000), Rakesh would tell me, ‘Yeh bilkul tere jaisa hai (He is like you).’ But I would deny that.”

Kapoor has worked with the veteran director in several films, including Kala Bazaar (1989), Kishen Kanhaiya (1990) and Khel (1991). Hrithik also assisted his father on Khel, which also starred Madhuri Dixit.  

Theatrical Trailer; Hrithik Roshan in ‘Krrish 3’

Hrithik Roshan recently launched the first theatrical trailer of Krrish 3 also starring Kangana Ranaut, Priyanka Chopra and Vivek Oberoi. 

Portraying as many as three strikingly different looks, Hrithik says the journey has been a fairly challenging one.

Krrish3 UK Release“The Rohit look was very difficult to attain. Koi Mil Gaya released in 2003, so we needed the character to look aged.”

Like Amitabh Bachchan in Paa, Hrithik spent nearly four and half hours to get ready for those scenes with a prosthetic expert. “Mike Stringer (best known for Lord of the Rings trilogy) was flown in to do the make-up and prosthetics. He was present for two schedules,” he says.

Hrithik and Stringer, tried out several looks before they took a final call. “Rohit’s character will continue to have child like qualities, but he will also look like a father (to Krishna). Ï had to balance that out. And importantly, that character wants to make everyone around him happy. So that element had to be retained,” said the actor.

Since the prosthetics had to be done on-set, Hrithik would report for work five hours in advance. On the other hand, Krishna, who is seen as Rohit’s son, didn’t need any make-up at all but only the superhero mask.

“The mask which is based on Krishna’s chakra is a slightly enhanced version of the original,” explains the actor, who has recently finished the film’s dubbing. “I had to modulate my voice in three different styles, but the final product looks pretty good,” he concludes.

Superstar Hrithik Roshan flew from the US to Hyderabad o unveil the first look of  one of the most awaited movies of the year, Krrish 3, during a live video chat on Facebook last week.

Even though he was jet lagged, it was hard for the superstar to contain the excitement in his voice. “I’m honoured,” he says, adding, “It was the birthday of this mammoth social networking platform and they chose to celebrate this momentous occasion with the launch of our poster.”

Hrithik is happy that he got a chance to see a flash mob — that was a part of the celebration. , “I have seen flash mobs on TV and heard about them, but to actually see one happening right in front of your eyes is a great experience. I got a lot of love from the hundreds of people present and I gave a lot of love.”

The first look of the movie was unveiled via a digital motion poster of the movie. Hrithik Roshan also posted the film poster on Instagram and marked his arrival on Instagram account (@hrithikroshan). 

Hrithik answered questions on topics varying from his Krrish franchise, handling success, hard work, his personal life, his co-actors, family, fatherhood and much more. Hrithik told his fans that his real life superhero is his father – Rakesh Roshan.

He went ahead to tell his fans about a few things they can expect in his forthcoming film. He also spoke about the challenges he faced during the shoot of the film, with the various stunts that were required to play a super hero. He let his fans into his personal space and shared his principles, inspirations and the philosophies he lives by. One line that left the audience awed by the super hero was ‘What makes you beautiful is what you do.’

The surprise package during the chat – Priyanka Chopra joined in from Mumbai and answered a few questions for her fans. She spoke about the movie, her character in the movie and her upcoming music album.

A sequel to Krrish, the film has been produced and directed by Rakesh Roshan and has music composed by Rajesh Roshan. Apart from Hrithik in the title role, it also stars Priyanka Chopra, Vivek Oberoi and Kangana Ranaut. Many foreign technicians are part of the project, including action director Tony Ching Siu Tung.

Hrithik in KrrishFor the first time ever in the History of Indian Cinema will a movie release on a Monday.

Krrish 3, which was earlier scheduled to release on 3rd, a Sunday is also the day of Laxmi Puja. People prefer staying home on Laxmi Puja so releasing on that day may have affected the footfalls.

Viz a viz releasing on Monday the 4th is the Hindu New Year and a holiday. This will ensure a lot of eyeballs considering the huge buzz around the movie. However coming on a Monday is an unusual norm and will be a first.

Producer – Director Rakesh Roshan has confirmed the release date. 

Hrithik to promote Krrish 3 worldwide

Hrithik in KrrishHrithik Roshan’s Krrish 3 is one of the most awaited films of the year. Understandably, the actor plans to pull out all stops to promote the third part of the superhero franchise. We have learned that he has kept aside an entire month to promote the film across the world.

An insider close to the project reveals, “Starting from the first week of October, Hrithik will take a month’s break to market the film, right until its release in the first week of November. The idea is to reach out to as many fans as possible during that time, because Rakeshji (Roshan; director) hasn’t started any kind of promotional activity yet. Even Hrithik has been off the media’s radar for a while now, since his last release, Agneepath (2012) was over a year ago.”

Interestingly, Hrithik is expected to travel to places like Dubai, Canada, UK and USA to promote Krrish 3.

“Since he needs to promote the film in India as well as internationally, he will require time for the same,” adds the insider.

The actor is currently busy shooting for Siddharth Anand’s Bang Bang with Katrina Kaif. He’s also teaming up once again with his Agneepath director, Karan Malhotra, for Shuddhi.

When contacted, Rakesh confirms, “Yes, Hrithik is going to take time off. But other details like the country and locations that he will visit are yet to be worked out.”

Rakesh & Pinky Roshan celebrate their anniversary

Priyanka, Rakesh and Hrithik on the setRakesh and Pinky Roshan celebrated their 42nd wedding anniversary yesterday on the sets of their film Krrish 3. It also happened to be the last day of the film’s shoot. As it was a wrap- up, Roshan was keen not to cancel the shoot.

A source from the sets says, “There were two cakes which were cut. One for the completion of the film and second for the wedding anniversary. Both Pinky and Rakesh Roshan’s daughter Sunaina were on the sets to celebrate the occasion.”

Hrithik took an active part in the celebrations. In the night, the Roshans had a quiet family dinner.

“Every year Hrithik and Sussane organise a huge party but Rakesh Roshan did not want to put off the last day of the shoot, so they decided to celebrate the anniversary by cutting a cake on the sets of Film City,” sums up the source. 

Krrish 3 is set to release on 3rd November 2013 and stars Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranaut and Vivek Oberoi.

Hrithik’s ‘Krrish 3’ to release on 3rd November

KrrishThe makers have not even released the first look of Krrish 3, yet Hrithik Roshan’s upcoming superhero sequel is a highly-anticipated release. And now, even as the film remains under-production, director-producer Rakesh Roshan has made another move that will lead to a further increase in expectations. Unlike most Bollywood films that release on Friday, Krrish 3 will hit the big screen on Sunday, 3rd November , which also happens to be Diwali day.

“It’s an auspicious occasion, so why not make the most of it by releasing Krrish 3 on the same date? Plus, my distributors have informed me that no big film is releasing pre-Diwali,” says Roshan Sr, adding that he has taken the decision with Hrithik’s total support.

The last film he directed was in 2006, Krrish. The industry seems extremely confident about the release of his next. Ask him if he feels the same way, and the filmmaker responds with a smile, saying, “Absolutely not. If the film is good, it will work. I don’t believe in pre-empting results.”

Incidentally, releasing films on the regular Diwali weekend — 1st November — is not considered a wise decision as people are reluctant to leave their homes a few days before the festival. “So if the film releases on 1st November , it might not get as big an opening as it would if it released on 3rd November ,” informs a trade insider.

The overseas distribution rights of the film have been acquired by Eros International, who will release the film in UK cinemas later this year.
