It would not be wrong to say that fans have been waiting for the fourth instalment of Hrithik Roshan's hit superhero franchise, ‘Krrish 4’. However, filmmaker Rakesh Roshan has now shared his concerns about the film going on floors. He told India Today that since the audience is reluctant to return to theatres, he was not immediately looking to take the film on floors. 

‘Koi Mil Gaya’ was the first film in the franchise and it was released in 2003, followed by ‘Krrish’ (2006), and ‘Krrish 3’ (2013). Earlier this year, Hrithik had confirmed that Krrish 4 will 'happen real soon'. However, his father-filmmaker Rakesh Roshan wants to wait before he takes the film on floors. 

“What is happening is that the audience is still not coming back to the theatres, so that is a big question mark for me. Krrish is going to be a big film. The world has become smaller and kids today are used to seeing Hollywood superhero films that are made on budgets of like $500-600 million. Meanwhile, we have a small budget of ₹200-300 crore in comparison," Rakesh told India Today.

He further added, “How to give that look to the film? I can, of course, decide to have 4 action sequences instead of 10, but that action has to match up with the quality. The VFX quality needs to be good. We are seeing how the budget and production costs can all be maintained. Big films that are released these days are not doing so well... We are absolutely ready to take the step forward.”

He further mentioned how films are not doing well and collections are not matching the production costs, hence, the film is going to happen, but not for a year. 

‘Krrish 4’ was first announced in 2018, but it has been getting delayed since then.
