No better superhero than Hrithik, feels Rakesh Roshan

New Delhi, Oct 23 (IANS) Filmmaker Rakesh Roshan says he ropes in Hrithik Roshan as a superhero in the "Krrish" franchise because he feels no actor can essay it better than his son.

Asked why he casts Hrithik as a superhero, senior Roshan said: "There's no other actor (other than Hrithik) in Bollywood who can become a superhero. If any other actor suited the role, we would have already seen a film before ours."

"Hrithik looks like a superhero, performs like a superhero," added the proud father, who gave a dreamlike launch to his son with blockbuster "Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai" in 2000.

What about Shah Rukh, who played the lead role in "RA.One"?

"Shah Rukh is good," he responded to a query.

The senior Roshan also clarified that his comment comes in the capacity of a director and not as a father.

"A father will always say his son is a superhero," he said.

"Krrish 3" releases Nov 1.
