The Greek god of Bollywood, Hrithik Roshan‘s collaboration with dad Rakesh Roshan is eternal. The two together have given us a lot of hits at the box office and without any denial, fans always are eager for the two to collaborate. And so director-producer Rakesh Rakesh on Hrithik’s birthday took to Twitter and gave fans a treat by announcing the release date of the fourth film from the hit ‘Krrish’ franchise.
Here have a look at the tweet:
Today is perhaps the best day to make the release day of Krrish 4 official. Christmas 2020 it is. A gift for all of you on Hrithiks birthday. Happy birthday @iHrithik

But then, looks like before even the film goes on floors, it has hit a roadblock. According to sources, there are differences between the director and the film’s lead over signing the leading lady for the film. If the sources are to be believed, Rakesh plans to sign an A-list actress for the film whereas Hrithik wants to sign a newbie. The two have had multiple discussions over this but haven’t reached a final conclusion as yet.
If we talk about the other films of the franchise, we saw Hrithik team up with Preity Zinta, Priyanka Chopra and Kangana Ranaut. Whereas if we talk about ‘Mohenjo Daro’, his 2016 debacle, Hrithik was paired opposite Pooja Hegde, a newbie and even in his forthcoming release, ‘Super 30’ Hrithik is paired opposite a new face namely Mrunal Thakur. Even his 2017 hit ‘Kaabil’ had him paired opposite Yami Gautam, a fairly new actress. So, does it hint of a possibility that the reports are indeed true?
Going by the said reports, only time will tell as to whether ‘Krrish 4’ will have a new face or a A-list actress on board. (Also Read: Hrithik is surrounded by ‘heroes’)

Jackie Shroff to play Salman Khan's father in 'Bharat'?
Ali Abbas Zafar’s upcoming film, ‘Bharat’ is getting bigger by the day! The film stars Salman Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Disha Patani, Tabu, Sunil Grover and Shashank Arora. And now, there is news that Jackie Shroff will be joining this ensemble cast!
As per a report on Bollywood Hungama, Jackie will be seen essaying the role of Salman’s father in the film. A source was quoted by the website as, “The role of Salman’s father may not be a big one but it’s pivotal to the film and shapes Salman’s character and who he becomes later. It was Salman who wanted Jackie to play this powerful role.”
The source adds, “It starts in 1947 when the Partition takes place and thousands of families are separated and ends in 2000. The movie is the journey of a country and also a person, both of whom go by the name of Bharat.”
‘Bharat’ is an adaptation of the Korean film, and talking about same, the source further said, “‘Ode To My Father’ begins with the Hungnam Evacuation in 1950 when many families got separated in Korea and the father tells his son Yoon Deok-soo, ‘If I don’t come you are the head of the family that means whatever happens you put the family first. Now, that you are the head of the family, look after them well.’ Jackie plays Salman’s father and his words remain with the young boy (Salman) right till the end. They get separated during the Partition in Bharat but his father’s words and desire to reunite with him remains right till the end.”
‘Bharat’ has been modified according to the Indian audiences, but the source claims, “Like ‘Ode To My Father’, which spans over many years, ‘Bharat’s story will span over a period of 50 years and that’s why we will see Salman Khan sporting five different looks in the movie – as a young boy who witnesses the Partition to the current years when he is an old man. As the firstborn, Bharat becomes his family’s breadwinner from an early age, doing all manner of odd jobs to support the family.”
“The film begins from a modern day elderly couple (Salman and Priyanka) reminiscing about their past and how they fell in love and got married. So we will get to see a very young Priyanka Chopra and Salman Khan and old ones too. There are flashbacks to various phases of time. Like Ode To My Father which depicted Korean history from the 1950s till the recent times, Bharat too will highlight various important events of Indian history,” added the source
Reportedly, the film will be shot at Mumbai, Delhi, Punjab, Abu Dhabi, Spain and Malta. ‘Bharat’ will release next year during Eid.
