Papa Roshan’s next stars Arshad,not Hrithik
Rakesh Roshan is all set to make a film without Hrithik Roshan! Roshan Sr is producing Krazzy 4, which go on the floors in July, under his banner Filmkraft.
This one will be directed by one of Roshan’s assistants. This is the first film that Rakesh is not directing ever since he took up direction with Kaho Naa Pyar Hai (2007).
Says Roshan,“Raja Sen, who assisted me in Kaho Naa…, Koi Mil Gaya and Krrish, will be directing it. Raja is a very good and capable director.
I will also be involved as a producer in each and every department of the film. Ashwini Dheer (Office Office) is the screenplay and dialogue writer of Krazzy 4.”
Rakesh Roshan wants to build up his production house and experiment with different films; on the lines of Subhash Ghai’s Mukta Arts and Yash Raj Films.
He explains his move, “We have to expand as a production house. New and exciting projects are coming up and audience tastes are changing.
I am excited about Krazzy 4. It’s very different from what my banner usually produces.
It’s an out and out comedy with a social message and is a wholesome commercial entertainer, which will appeal to every section of society.
Krazzy 4 is based around all the four characters played by Arshad Warsi, Irrfan Khan, Suresh Menon and Rajpal Yadav who form the crazy foursome.
Dia Mirza, Juhi Chawla and Rajat Kapoor form very important and pivotal elements of the rest of the cast. I have very good actors in the film.”
The film is based on an idea which Roshan Sr had eight years ago, “I wanted to make it but didn’t find the right time to make the film. I have always had a flair for comedies.
Earlier I had produced Kaamchor which was a comedy. After giving three hits together (Kaho Naa…, Koi Mil Gaya and Krrish), this is the first film that he and Hrithik won’t be working together in.
“Hrithik is has other date commitments and I was sitting idle, so I thought why not go ahead and make the film for our banner, minus Hrithik.
I will start my film with Hrithik after Krazzy 4 is complete. But yes, Hrithik is very much involved with Krazzy 4 too.”
