Rakesh Roshan, the director, claims that his granddaughter, who had enjoyed an animated series with an alien, gave him the concept for Koi Mil Gaya, a science fiction film aimed at kids and families.

In Koi Mil Gaya, Hrithik Roshan played Rohit Mehra, a young guy with developmental disabilities who gains new abilities after meeting Jaadoo, an alien. On August 8, 2003, the movie was released, and it quickly became a financial success.

The inspiration for Koi Mil Gaya came to me one day while I watched my granddaughter Suranika (Sunaina Roshan’s daughter) watch an alien-themed cartoon. I was immediately intrigued and asked of her to see whether she comprehended the idea; she then told me the story. I was taken aback that a young child of her age could not only define an extraterrestrial but also looked intrigued by the sci-fi idea,” the director told PTI.

Rakesh Roshan stated that the goal of making Koi Mil Gaya, which also features Preity Zinta and Rekha in significant parts, was to create a sci-fi plot that was simple to follow. “It was a sci-fi movie with an alien, which was a very novel concept at that time in India,” he continued.

With his own group of buddies known as “The super six,” Hrithik portrayed Rohit as a man with the mental capacity of a nine-year-old. Rohit’s pals were portrayed by actors Hansika Motwani, Omkar Purohit, Jai Choksi, Mohit Makkad, and Pranita Bishnoi.

The director claimed to have complete faith in Hrithik’s talent but was shocked when his famous son outperformed the projections.

He had to perform this character alongside five other children, so he had to blend in and not portray the position as a lone hero. I gave him this chance because I was confident in his abilities and that he would fulfill the role’s requirements. It was really amazing how well-researched, character-appropriate, and camouflaged he was among the children. The 73-year-old actor-director recalls with affection: “Watching an actor deliver beyond conception was a filmmaker’s thrill.

According to Rakesh Roshan, creating the extraterrestrial was the most difficult aspect of the film. With the idea for the movie, he got in touch with Australian artists James Callner and Lara Denman.

I was convinced that I wanted an alien who would be viewed as a friend rather than a threat by the kids. As Jaadoo typically communicates through his eyes, I thus conveyed the idea of an alien who was the same height as the kids and had highly expressive eyes.

“Based on the description, they provided a drawing of Jaadoo, and I immediately recognized “Jaadoo Mil Gaya” (we have found Jaadoo). The filmmaker continued, “All these tiny little things added up to the connection Koi Mil Gaya has with the kids and has been winning hearts for the last 20 years.

Following Koi Mil Gaya, Rakesh Roshan released Krissh (2006), and with Krrish 3, he established a franchise. The director was inspired to create a Koi Mil Gaya film franchise by the Lord of the Rings film series.

“I got the notion to continue the Koi Mil Gaya narrative because I thought the conclusion had promise. Hrithik was ecstatic when he heard the one-line concept I had just come up with and I had shared with him.

It was difficult to introduce a superhero movie to the Indian public, according to Rakesh. The director reflected on how crucial it was to maintain the film’s emotional intensity for Indian viewers.
