Actor Hrithik Roshan became the first superhero of Bollywood with Krrish, but he felt that he was not worthy enough to play the role for the upcoming sequel owing to his poor health resulting from a spate of injuries. In Koi Mil Gaya, a science-fiction, he played a mentally challenged individual, which seemed like a risk but Hrithik pulled it off with ease.
Then came Krrish, which claimed to be Bollywood's first superhero movie and had Hrithik jumping around in trenchcoat and a mask. It was an instant hit with kids. But while shooting for Krrish 2, Hrithik got injured badly at the Filmistan Studios after he fell down. Earlier, he was also admitted to Breach Candy hospital as he had injured his back while shooting for Agneepath.
In an interview with PTI, Hrithik Roshan said, "My dad was like should we make Krrish now or not? Should we make it in 2013? But I was sure that if we don't make it now then it will not happen. We had taken dates of everyone. After two years, we had reached here and if we don't start now then it will not happen. So we had to start and I have to get into right shape."
With injuries, it seemed that the actor was not able to cope up with the training for the sequel. Despite all this, for Krrish 2, Hrithik went ahead. The actor said, "I had to get into best shape health wise. I had to achieve a pain free body, I am like damaged goods..knee, elbow, shoulder.. all injured..."
Hrithik Roshan added, "It is a good thing that people think of me as a superhero. Two months back I did not feel like superhero. I took my Krrish jacket it did not fit me, I was like I am not worthy enough to do Krrish so to make myself worthy, I hunted for best trainers from UK...I had ten weeks of transformation. I lost 10 kgs in 10 weeks."
