The latest buzz in industry circles is that Rakesh Roshan has plans to start filming the sequel to his desi super hero flick, Krrish by September 2010. Playing the title role, Hrithik Roshan will however not be romancing Priyanka Chopra in this one, our sources claims.
Sources further reveal, “Roshan Sr. who will be directing the film apart from producing it, is considering Deepika Padukone to play the lead, although there has been no confirmation. While the first film in the series Koi Mil Gaya had Preity Zinta in the lead opposite Hrithik, Krrish featured Priyanka Chopra. There are no plans for her to return, so it remains to be seen who would step into the leading lady"s role."
It is also believed that Roshan Sr. has had early discussions with the SFX team and a big crew of foreign technicians who worked on Krrish. They have been bouncing off ideas on where to take the character and how to develop it.
Letting us in the secret, our source further reveals that Rakesh has zeroed down on a plotline where Krrish battles his evil counterpart in the sequel. Apparently, Rakesh is keen on having Hrithik play a grey character ever since he saw his performance in Dhoom 2. Krrish will be seen saving the 7 wonders of the world, which makes a perfect foil to include extensive shots of diverse foreign locations.
Hrithik will also undergo vigorous physical training for the role. He has completed Kites, which is all set for release next year. He is currently shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali"s Guzaarish with Aishwarya Bachchan.
