Hrithik Roshan is regarded as the pioneer of the genre of Science Fiction in Hindi Cinema. Koi… Mil Gaya, which came in 2003, started the genre in our industry. And with Krrish in 2006, he gave Indian fans their first Super-hero. And now, let’s talk about S. Shankar, whose imagination and inventiveness is no less. The filmmaker has always pushed the bar of Indian movies with his spectacular VFX, audacious budget and vital storytelling. He gave us the first Indian film ever to be shot entirely with 3D cameras, 2.0, which is a historic success story. Imagine what would happen if Shankar and Roshan unite for a Sci-Fi film!
Well, this twain shall meet soon! They both are in talks to collaborate for a film and an announcement is expected soon. A source said, “Shankar has always been keen to work with Hrithik and has been trying since the last four years but somehow it has never worked out. Shankar feels with Hrithik’s good looks, great physique, and superb dancing skills, he can do justice to the kind of scripts he has.”
It added, “Few know that Hrithik and Shankar have been in talks for months to do a film together after ‘2.0’ got complete and it’s the main lead. Shankar approached Hrithik Roshan for his next after ‘Indian 2’ and while Hrithik has liked the script, they are working on other factors including remuneration and dates. Shankar had earlier wanted Hrithik to do Akshay Kumar’s role, ornithologist Pakshi Rajan, in ‘2.0’ but Hrithik was busy shooting for ‘Super 30’ at that time and couldn’t commit.”
It concluded by saying, “Right now he is completing ‘Super 30’ and YRF’s movie with Tiger Shroff and Vaani Kapoor. If he agrees to do Shankar’s movie it will definitely be an announcement of sorts.” We hope this surely happens soon!
