Director Shankar's success recently soared up with the release of Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar-starrer 2.0. The film marked a new milestone in the genre of sci-fi action. Of course he broke his own record held with 'Robot' starring super star Rajinikanth. Recent report shows that Shankar approached Hrithik Roshan with another script of same genre. After reading the whole story Hrithik gave an affirmation to team up with Shankar. A source also stated that Shankar was always interested to work with the Krrish star.
Hrithik Roshan almost faded away from the industry after his movie 'Kaabil'. He also got a filmfare award nomination for best actor for the same. But the movie was a commercial failure. After Krrish 3, Hrithik never played anything in sci-fi genre. So this one could be a come back movie for Roshan.
Recently Hrithik joined Vikas Bahl for 'Super 30'. The movie is based on the life of mathematician Anand Kumar and his educational program Super 30. The project was bankrolled by Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane, Madhu Mantena and Sajid Nadiadwala. Super 30 is scheduled to release in 2019.
