Bollywood director Siddharth Anand, known for his successful action films like War (2019) and the recent blockbuster Pathaan (2023) starring Shah Rukh Khan, is reportedly in talks to direct the much-awaited sequel, Krrish 4. The film stars Hrithik Roshan in the lead role and is part of the popular Krrish franchise, which has gained a huge fan following over the years.
Anand, who started his career with romantic comedies like Salaam Namaste (2005) and Ta Ra Rum Pum (2007), transitioned to action films with films like Bang Bang (2014), which also starred Roshan. The duo later collaborated on the mega-hit War (2019), which cemented Anand’s position as one of the most sought-after directors in Bollywood.
According to a source, Anand is the perfect fit for Krrish 4, as the film requires a director who can handle the scale, grandeur, and emotional depth of a superhero film. The source also mentions that Anand’s previous work with Roshan and their comfortable working relationship adds to his suitability for the project.
However, Anand is currently busy with his upcoming film Fighter, starring Roshan and Deepika Padukone, which is set to release on Republic Day 2024. He also has another project in the pipeline, Tiger vs Pathaan, starring Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan, expected to release in 2025. Despite his busy schedule, talks for Krrish 4 are reportedly at an advanced stage, and it remains to be seen if Anand will take up the offer and find time for the project.
Krrish 4 is the fourth installment in the popular superhero franchise, which started with Koi Mil Gaya (2003), followed by Krrish (2006) and Krrish 3 (2013). The films were directed by Hrithik Roshan’s father, Rakesh Roshan, who is currently working on the script for Krrish 4. In a recent interview, he mentioned that the film will not begin before the end of 2024, as it is a concept that has not been attempted before in Indian cinema and requires careful scripting due to its emotional core.
With Siddharth Anand’s potential involvement in Krrish 4, fans of the franchise are eagerly anticipating the film’s release. Anand’s expertise in handling action-packed films and his previous successful collaborations with Roshan and Khan make him a strong contender to helm the project.
