When it comes to talking about chasing the quality rather than quantity, veteran filmmaker Rakesh Roshan is one name that appears at a very reputed position in Bollywood. Currently, the veteran filmmaker is all ready with the release of his upcoming production venture ‘Kaabil’ that stars his son and superstar Hrithik Roshan in the lead. Leaving no stone unturned to make ‘Kaabil’ a super success, what thought struck us today is that it also carries the lucky mascot of producer Rakesh Roshan. And that is the letter ‘K’ which has been an integral part of every film title made under the banner of this filmmaker.
Many admirers and moviegoers might know this fact that Rakesh Roshan is very superstitious. His fixation with letter ‘K’ had cemented in the year 1987 with the release of his directorial debut ‘Khudgarz’. Ironically, this ‘K’ letter fixation even completes a period of three decades this year. So, what had actually made this actor-filmmaker go ahead with this letter and who was the real source behind it? The reason behind it was revealed by Rakesh Roshan in the year 2000.
During the promotions of his son Hrithik’s debut film ‘Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai’, Rakesh Roshan had said in an interview, “As far as the ‘K’ fixation goes, when I was making ‘Jag Utha Insan’ some fan wrote to me that you should name your films with K because all your films with K have done well — to name a few, ‘Khoobsurat’, ‘Kaamchor’, ‘Khel Khel Mein’, ‘Khatta Meetha’, ‘Khandaan’, etc. I didn’t believe and I made ‘Jag Utha Insan’ and ‘Bhagwaan Dada’, and then just by chance I made ‘Khudgarz’ and that was a big success and established me as a director. So that fan wrote to me, this time you listened to me and you are seeing the results, and I thought I have to name films, so why not with ‘K’ and that’s how the ‘K’ factor stands.”
We could only end this perfectly by saying that from ‘Khudgarz’ to ‘Krrish 3’, success has followed Rakesh Roshan with his hard work, instincts and the ‘K’ factor.
Let’s see what more wonders ‘Kaabil’ will bring to this list.
Quiet, resonant, and creative, he can be seen immersed in his own world, and puts in his heart and soul into the one passion that he has, Bollywood. His line for survival? Feel happy to be a part of it.
