Hrithik is happy that he got a chance to see a flash mob — that was a part of the celebration, “I have seen flash mobs on TV and heard about them, but to actually see one happening right in front of your eyes is a great experience. I got a lot of love from the hundreds of people present and I gave a lot of love.”

The story in case you missed is: After defeating the villainous Dr. Siddhant Arya, and bringing his father Rohit back from the dead, Krrish continued fighting against evil and saving innocent lives. Now Krishna is living a happily married life with Priya, while Rohit is using his scientific brilliance to benefit society. And Krrish is everyone’s favorite superhero saviour. Unknown to them, a dark force is growing in another part of the world. Kaal, an evil genius, is selfishly misusing his powers to spread fear, death and destruction. And he is being assisted by an army of very dangerous beings, which he has created himself. Not long after Kaal’s plans are put into action, both Rohit and Krrish find themselves faced with a crisis of epic proportions, which only they can resolve, together. But when they finally cross paths with Kaal and his army, neither of them is prepared for what lies ahead. Kaal not only brings the world to the brink of disaster, he also puts the strength and love of Krishna and his family to the test!
Krrish 3, produced by FilmKraft, is slated for release around Diwali 2013.
