The LOTR fan base have been eagerly waiting for the release of its prequel, The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power. The Rings Of Power is all set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video on September 2 and ahead of its release, a grand press conference for the series was held in Mumbai. The event was attended by Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan who revealed his special connection with The Lord Of The Rings franchise. Roshan revealed that there would no Krrish if there was no LOTR.
As per IndiaToday, Hrithik Roshan was asked about the trailer of The Rings Of Power, to which he said, “Oh! I think the trailer speaks for itself. This is the kind of stuff that I aspire for. It is a visual extravaganza meeting [with] great content.” Sharing the special connection between LOTR and Krrish, Hrithik explained, “There’s a little connection between me and The Lord Of The Rings that I don’t think anybody knows. On one random day in 2004, my dad put on The Lord Of The Rings part 1. He saw the film and couldn’t stop. He saw part 2 and couldn’t stop and saw part 3.”
He explained, “And then he gave me a call and he couldn’t stop talking about the way they used this incredible idea and then had this progression which was so incredible. [And he asked] ‘Why can’t we do that?’ So I said, ‘ya but what are you talking about?’ Then, he said ‘Why can’t we take Koi… Mil Gaya, which is one of our previous films, and have a progression?’ And that was the birth of Krrish. So, if there was no The Lord Of The Rings, there would be no Krrish.”
Meanwhile, the series is set in the Second Age of Middle-earth, thousands of years before Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. It will cover all the major events of Middle-earth’s Second Age, like the forging of the Rings of Power, the rise of the Dark Lord Sauron, the fall of the island kingdom of Númenor, and the last alliance between Elves and Men.
