Rakesh Roshan's next will star Arshad not Hrithik
Rakesh Roshan is ready to start his next film. And no it is not a sequel to Krrish. Neither does it star Hrithik Roshan. Instead it stars Arshad Warsi. Surprised? Ok, let’s make the news believable now. Well the Krrish sequel with Hrithik is very much happening but that’s later. Before that Rakesh Roshan plans to make another film but this time his role is just restricted to being a producer.

The as yet untitled film will be directed by Rakesh Roshan’s assistant Raja Sen and star Arshad Warsi as the male lead. Interestingly Arshad Warsi plays the role of a mentally deranged character in the film. So is it like what Hrithik Roshan did in Koi Mil Gaya? Not really! Here Arshad plays a complete mad man. The film will be shot in mid April and will also feature Boman Irani, Pankaj Kapoor and Om Puri.

So why not Hrithik when the film is being produced by Rakesh Roshan? That’s because Hrithik is quite busy with his other commitments that include Jodha Akbar and the Krrish sequel.

Earlier, Rakesh Roshan has produced films like Asha, Aap Ke Deewane, Jag Utha Insaan and Bhagwan Dada which he did not direct. But after turning a director this is his production house Filmkraft’s first project that is being directed by someone other than him. Looks like Rakesh Roshan too is all set to expand his production house in the likes of Yash Chopra and Karan Johar and is now open minded about hiring directors for his productions.
