Hrithik Roshan's upcoming ventures have been amid quite a few speculations lately, and they only seem to add to the mystery around what the actor will be seen in next.

While there were some rumours doing the rounds that Hrithik's next film, which is touted to be titled Kabaddi, will be under the banner of Ronnie Screwvala's production house. Now, it is being said that Mirzya director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra has been roped in to helm the project, according to a report by Filmfare.

The report further suggests that Hrithik is currently busy preparing for his father's next directorial, Krrish 4, which is still in the development stage. Rakesh Roshan is apparently in the final stages of scripting the film. Hence, Hrithik has given the first priority to his father's project over anything now.

Krrish 4 is scheduled to release on Christmas 2018. While Hrithik will begin preparing for the role soon, the film's shoot will begin in early 2018. Mid-Day reports Rakesh Roshan saying that the characters from the previous films will reprise their roles, and new ones will be introduced too.

Hrithik was last seen in Kaabil, where his performance in the film was appreciated. His another upcoming project, where he plays famed mathematician Anand Kumar, will be directed by Vikas Bahl. It is his first biopic, and it has been tentatively titled Super 30. This is a reference to the well-known program that Kumar runs, which trains aspirants to crack the entrance test of the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT).

It is also being speculated that Hrithik will star in the film adaptation of Immortals of Meluha which will be directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. This book is the first in the Shiva trilogy, and is followed by The Secret of the Nagas and The Oath of the Vayuputras. It chronicles the origins of Lord Shiva and how he came to rule over Meluha and marry Parvati.
