Carving Dreams was responsible for securing the deal between Filmkraft Productions, Graphic India and Hungama Digital.
Hrithik Roshan, the lead actor in ‘Krrish 3’ commented, “As we get ready for ‘Krrish 3’, I am pleased to announce this bonus never before seen Krrish story from Graphic India and Hungama. We’re working with an international team of comic book superstars, so you can experience Krrish in a whole new way.”
