Producer-director Rakesh Roshan has announced the release date of his next film, Krrish 4, featuring Hrithik Roshan in the titular role of the superhero, and it is Christmas 2020.

Krrish 4 will be the third Krrish film and the latest entry in the franchise that began with the 2003 blockbuster Koi... Mil Gaya. Hrithik Roshan first donned the black cape in 2006 in Krrish and reprised his role in Krrish 3 in 2013.

Rakesh Roshan has been working on Krrish 4 for a long time. In 2016, the Times of India reported that he was consulting his grandchildren, Hrehaan and Hridhaan, to be up-to-speed with the latest developments in the world of superhero films.

The Krrish films themselves have borrowed plot points and sequences from several Hollywood films, predominantly the X-Men series. Despite allegations of plagiarism, all the films have minted money at the box office.
