“It was not possible for Hrithik to play the antagonist. He is already playing three roles. I had Vivek in mind for the part right from the start. He has the right physique and body language for it. Suresh (Vivek Oberoi's father) and I have been friends for years. I wanted to work with Vivek for a long time. When the role of the antagonist in Krrish 3 came up, I instinctively knew Vivek was right for it," Mid Day quoted Rakesh as saying.
The makers of Krrish 3 are planning to start shooting the film this November.
