Shah Rukh and Hrithik have played superheroes in the past. The former starred in Anubhav Sinha's Ra.One (2011). While the film was appreciated for its visual effects and post-production, it failed to create a buzz at the box office. 

Hrithik played Krrish in his home production. The franchise started with Koi... Mil Gaya in 2003. Krrish, the second part, released in 2006. The third part, titled Krrish 3, arrived in theatres in 2013. The fourth film of the franchise is currently in the making.
