Krrish is a franchise of Indian science fiction films, superhero films, television series, comics and video games. The film series is directed, produced and written by Rakesh Roshan. It is considered Indian cinema's first such film series. All three films starred Rakesh's son Hrithik Roshan, and were scored by his brother Rajesh Roshan. The films are centred, initially, on a mentally handicapped boy who has an encounter with an extraterrestrial being, and later, his son, who grows up to be a reluctant superhero. The first two films were blockbusters in the Indian market, and hits in the overseas markets. The third film was released on 1 November 2013 and was declared a blockbuster shattering many box office records grossing over at the box office. In 2013, an animated television series based on this Krrish film series, and named Kid Krrish, aired on Cartoon Network India. It also spawned a spin-off animation-cum-live-action series titled J Bole Toh Jadoo that aired on Nickelodeon (India). Krrish 3 was the first Indian film to launch its own official Facebook Emoticons as part of the promotion. Krrish is now the third highest-grossing film series in Bollywood.
