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!”

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.
