Filmmaker Rakesh Roshan’s Filmkraft Productions has partnered with Turner International India and Kerala-headquartered Toonz Animation to create four animated movies based on the Bollywood movie “Krrish”.

The movies will be created between 2013 and 2014, the first of which titled “Kid Krrish” will be aired on Turner International India-owned Cartoon Network July 14 this year, said an official release from Toonz Animation.

The official announcement of the project will be made in Mumbai on Monday, it added.

These movies follow the childhood adventures of Krishna (a character in the Filmkraft Productions’ “Krrish”), who discovers that he can help people and save the world with the special powers bestowed upon him by ‘Jadoo’ (another character from the movie “Koi Mil Gaya”).

Roshan said he has always pushed the limits by making different kinds of films and planning new strategies to promote them. “Since ‘Krrish 3’ will be ready for release in Diwali. I wanted to revive the memory of ‘Krrish’ among children who may have not seen ‘Koi Mil Gaya’ or ‘Krrish’,” the fimmaker said.
