Writing special effects movies is very different: Honey Irani

Writing a movie full of special effects like 'Krrish 3' is very different from writing a typical Bollywood potboiler, acclaimed scriptwriter and the head of 18th ICFFI's jury panel, Honey Irani said here today. 

Speaking on the sidelines of the ongoing International Children's Film Festival of India (ICFFI), Irani said script for films like the Krish series was more action oriented and one has to put emotions into it. 

"It is very different. Because, you have to think of the special effects, you have to think of the action and you have to create characters who do not look real. It is very different to think on these lines. 

"The angle of the film's script is more action oriented and you have to put emotions into it. It is very different from scripting a regular Hindi movie," she told PTI today. 

Incidentally, Honey Irani has written all the three movies of the franchised series beginning with 'Koi Mil Gaya' in 2003, 'Krrish' in 2006 and 'Krrish 3' which has just been released and has proved to be a blockbuster at the box office. 

"It required a lot of imagination to write 'Krrish 3' for the film as it is the third in the series. It is very different, but it is also something we had already done earlier, from 'Koi Mil Gaya' to 'Krrish'. To carry on from there and yet create more excitement by making it bigger took up a lot of imagination," she said. 

"Luckily, there were also other writers with me like Robin Bhatt. So, it was great. Besides, Rakesh Roshan is a great to work with. So, we had a blast. Now, I think Roshan is thinking of something else, may be 'Krrish 4', I don't know," she said. 

Irani also disclosed that she is writing script for a film which she wants to direct herself. 

"I am writing a script now which I want to direct myself. Let's see how it goes. I am also doing two other scripts right now which are both for new film makers. They are small budget films," she said.
