He is back. This time with an alien in tow.
Hrithik Roshan's new film Koi…Mil Gaya wears the tag of being India's first alien film. It releases August 8.
Directed by father Rakesh Roshan who launched Hrithik in Kaho Naa…Pyaar Hai, Koi…Mil Gaya also stars Preity Zinta, Rekha and an alien. KNPH catapulted Hrithik to superstar status overnight.
He then went on to record a spate of flops, most notable being Sooraj Barjatya's Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon. Koi…Mil Gaya now is said to be Hrithik's make-or-break film.
Interestingly, advance tickets for the movie are sold out in Mumbai and Delhi. A recent promotional campaign for the movie in Delhi saw a 5,000-strong crowd thronging the venue to catch a glimpse of or meet the star.
Will the father-son combination prove second-time lucky? Will the concept of an extra-terrestrial work with the masses?
More important, is Hrithik still hot or not?
