Hrithik Roshan, Krrish 4, Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan krrish 4, Shah Rukh Khan film, Shah Rukh Khan anand l rai film Hrithik Roshan’s Krrish 4 has been announced with Ganpati’s blessings. The film will clash with SRK’s film Aanand L Rai..

Hrithik Roshan is polishing his black superhero togs as the fourth film in the Krrish is all set to go on floors. Krrish 3, directed by Rakesh Roshan was a hit and also paired Kangana Ranaut with Hrithik’s world-saving hero.

When Hrithik Roshan tweeted this on Wednesday (September 14), we were not sure what to make of it: “Ganpati blessings for KRRISH4 :)) hope everyone is enjoying the festivities. Love to all.” Was he announcing the film or was it still just an idea.

Thankfully, Hrithik’s father — director-producer Rakesh Roshan — confirmed the news. Speaking to a daily, he said, “When my wife showed me Bappa’s picture, it reaffirmed my belief that Krrish is the original superhero we have. It boosted my confidence and inspired me to make the fourth installment. Ganesha is also called the God of Auspicious beginnings. I guess this was his way of saying that we have his blessings for Krrish 4.” He also said the film will release on Christmas 2018.

Now, there is a little problem there for that slot has already been taken by Shah Rukh Khan and Aanand L Rai’s unnamed next film. Red Chillies, SRK’s production company had earlier tweeted, “Excited to announce our film with @aanandlrai & @iamsrk in association with @cypplOfficial. Releasing Dec 21, 2018. Title to be revealed soon!”

Check the tweets here.

Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik are also clashing on January 26 next year when their Raees and Kaabil will go head-to-head. SRK has bowed out from a clash with Sultan and was shopping for a release date when Raees can go solo. Despite SRK’s efforts to avoid the clash with Hrithik and a late night visit to the actor’s house, the clash is very much on. Rakesh Roshan also said in the interview, “Only a few days of patchwork is left. We’ll be ready to release it on January 26, 2017.”

Will these two clashes really happen? Watch this apce.

    The media sounds insane by world standards. This isn't even news! At this rate, Bollywood is better off releasing movies abroad first before they release 'em in India. Start with the U.S. - everyone else will follow suit. This coverage sounds like a joke!

      With a potion of 1.3 billion, a couple of movies can't release at the same time? We're not even a third of the potion in the U.S. with several movies opening concurrently. And no one panics! Why all the drama? Besides, all the negativity that gets posted - Indians don't even pay $3 to watch a movie and other nations pay over $12! With an economy that is touted by your leaders as growing at an astronomical rate, isn't it cheap to complain about being so indecisive and not watch TWO movies for dirt cheap? Are you kidding?

        Srk sir all the best for Raees and anand l rai next. Hrithik is a very very flop actor in bollywood. Srk ki sath box office takrana k lia hrithik kabil nahi ha.

          I think all the actors are talented, in one way or another, if it is SRK, Hrithik or whosoever it is. but very few actors are there to portray a real story from the real India. A film can touch you, with its originality of story, script, editing, photography etc etc... But instead what is happening right now in Indian film industry? they create stories which has no whatsoever relation with reality, about 95% of bollywood films are only ilusion. Illusion is not supposed to use in a film, in the scale of 95%. if you think our audience is immature for movies which doesn't create illusion, then with good quality movies, change the mind set of our audience. I do believe from the core of my heart that, bollywood has the power to contribute so much to our society, it has the power to change us for a better tomorrow. I do urge most humbly to the dear movie makers, do not concentrate on making money with movies with no moral values, no vision, no connection with the real indians reality. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Your movies are a product, for which we do pay with our hard earn money, therfore give us a good art form, give us vision. give us the real india. give us the story of our nation, how is our nation feeling now. please please please...do not make movies where we go and watch it for the songs and fights and jokes which are not up to the level.( My neighbours and my colleagues are showing much better sense of humor than bollywood.)lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;BOLLYWOOD; YOU HAVE THE POWER( which you are ignoring) USE IT WISELY. THAT MARKET IS UNTOUCHED. THE MARKET WHERE YOU MAKE AND SELL GOOD FILMS. NOT SOAPY FILMS, LAZY FILMS, FILMS WHERE LIE IS GLORIFIED ( A MAN FIGHTING WITH 10 OR MORE MEN, AND NOTHING HAPPENS TO HIM BECAUSE, THE ACTOR IS SALMAN KHAN OR AJAY DEVGHAN OR WHOEVER and ETC ETC..lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;THOSE BOLLYWOOD ACTORS, WHO BECAME ACTORS TO MAKE A POINT OF BEING SUCCESSFUL BY MAKING MONEY, COME OUT FROM YOUR SO CALLED COMFORT ZONES AND MAKE MEANINGFUL MOVIES FOR THE GENERATIONS TO COME. THAT OUR CHILDREN CAN LOOK BACK AND SAY, LOOK AT THAT MOVIE, WHAT A MOVIE, LET THEM CONNECT WITH OUR NATION.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;DEAR MR SRK, MR SALMAN, MR AMIR, MR HRITIKH , MR DEVGAN, MR AKSHAY... COME ON OUT FROM THE COMFORT ZONES. GOD GAVE YOU THE CHANCE TO BE ON TOP, GOD HAS BLESSED YOU WITH EVERYTHING YOU WANTED. NOW IT IS YOUR TURN, TO GIVE US, THE AUDIENCE, WHAT WE NEED, GOOD MOVIES WITH CONNECTION WITH THE REAL INDIA; THAT WHAT WE NEED.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;WE AUDIENCE KNOW THAT, YOU ALL HAD A TOUGH TIME AT THE BEGINNING OF YOUR CAREERS, BELIVE ME, WE ALL HAVE THAT PERIOD IN OUR LIVES, NOT ONLY YOU. WE ALL DO WORK HARD, WE ALL DO EARN MONEY HARD.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;THE TIME HAS COME; FOR YOU ALL TO GIVE US GOOD FILMS. YOU WILL BE REMEMBERED IF YOU ALL MAKE GOOD FILMS WITH STORY IN CONNECTION WITH THE REALITY OF INDIA, RATHER THAN AN IDEA.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;I URGE YOU FOR THIS. YOU MUST DO IT. I BELIEVE IT IS GOD'S WILL. HAVE YOU ALL SUPER STARS EVER THOUGHT WHY GOD HAS GIVEN YOU THE FAME AND YOU ARE ALL STILL FAMOUS...? TO BRING THE CHANGE IN INDIAN CINEMA. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;WHAT MR STYAJIT RAI BEGAN, YOU ALL SHOULD CONTINUE. DON'T BE FOOLED BY MONEY, BIG HOUSES AND I DON'T KNOW WHATEVER YOU GUYS ARE UP TO, NONE OF YOU ARE MAKING GOOD FILMS.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;I PLEAD YOU.... MAKE GOOD FILMS... REWARD WILL BE MORE THAN YOU COULD EVER IMAGINE... THAT IS YOUR DESTINY... FOLLOW IT.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;MUCH LOVE AND RESPECT TO YOU TOO ALL YOU SUPER STARS. WITH FIRE WE TEST GOLD, WITH GOLD GOD TEST HUMANS.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE, WHILE YOU STILL HAVE YOUR STARDOME, MAKE GOOD FILMS IN CONNECTION WITH THE REAL INDIAN REALITY. LET THE AUDIENCE BE AWARE.. CREATE IN US AWARENESS.. CREATE IN US TO BE CREATIVE... CREATE IN US A PURE HEART AND POSITIVE HEART WITH HOPE TO LOOK FORWARD IN LIFE, THAN ILLUSION.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;( I COULD SAY (WRITE), BUT NEED TO GO, AS I ALSO WORK HARD ENOUGH TO SURVIVE)lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;MAY GOD BLESS YOU WITH VISION, UNITY AND MOST OF ALL LOVE AND MORE LOVE.
