At a time when Bollywood potboilers are minting Rs.100 crore, Rs.200 crore and more, filmmaker Rakesh Roshan hopes "Krrish 3" reaches the Rs.1,000 crore milestone at the box office.
The "Krrish 3" team - director-producer Rakesh Roshan and the cast of Hrithik Roshan, Vivek Oberoi, Priyanka Chopra and Kangana Ranaut - was here Wednesday to spread the buzz about the movie which releases Nov 1.
When a reporter asked what box office record he would like to create with "Krrish 3", senior Roshan said: "Rs.1,000 crore!"
He laughed but the gleam in his eyes expressed his positivity towards his project which stars his son Hrithik as a superhero. The film is the third in the "Krrish" franchise which began with "Koi Mil Gaya".
Hrithik is proud of the project, especially as his father took a decision to use all "Hindustani" artists for the visual effects and action.
"It is great that our cinema has come to a stage where, in one percent of the budget of a Hollywood film, so much can be incorporated," said Hrithik of "Krrish 3" which features mutants.
"It is the first truly home grown superhero film and it is a proud feeling for us. If 'Krrish 3' is a success or rather when 'Krrish 3' is a success, let me be positive about it, it will be great for the sake of our artists. The scope will be so much for them that we will not just be able to match (international levels) but also go beyond it," he said.
