Hrithik wants to play villain in 'Krrish 3'

Rakesh Roshan has not announced a sequel of "Krrish", but son Hrithik has let the cat out of the bag by saying that he would love to play villain in the next superhero film of the series.

"All I can say at this point is I wish I could play the villain in 'Krrish 3'. I'm really excited about the villain's role. So much so that I feel like giving up the superhero's mantle to play villain. His role is too exciting," Hrithik told IANS.

If he's so excited about it he could play both the superhero and the villain in "Krrish 3"?

"No, no," shrugged the actor. "That would be a triple role because then I'll be playing the father, son and the villain."

As for the clamour to have him back in the third part of the "Dhoom" series, Hrithik is all for it.

"Well, I think 'Dhoom' is a fabulous franchise. It has to move on. Whether my character Aryan will be back or not remains to be seen. Anything is possible in the movies.

"The challenge for every 'Dhoom' or 'Krrish' film is to be bigger and brighter than before. I think we're climbing the ladder very fast. Soon we needn't fear comparisons with our Hollywood counterparts."

Hrithik is in a daring mood.

"The point is to find new challenges, I only want to do make-or-break films. And 'Krrish 3' will fall into that category," said Hrithik whose next big release is the Ashutosh Gowariker-directed "Jodhaa-Akbar".

He is paired with Aishwarya Rai in the period love story. They were seen together in "Dhoom 2".
