Confirming the reports of unveiling the "Krrish 3" trailer along with the release of "Chennai Express", the director and producer of "Krrish 3" Rakesh Roshan said, "That's the plan. I'm going to talk to Shah Rukh or UTV about it," Hindustan Times reported.

"Launching the trailer with a big film guarantees you many eyeballs," he added.

Deemed to be one of the most anticipated films of 2013, "Krrish 3" is the third edition of the 2003 blockbuster film "Koi... Mil Gaya" which was followed by its sequel "Krrish" in 2006.

Even before the release of the trailer, Hrithik's looks in the film have already grabbed attention. The 39-year-old actor will be seen flaunting a chiselled body in the flick. As per reports, he was trained by popular American trainers Kris Gethin and his wife Maraica Johnsoone to acquire the perfect superhero physique.

Lauding Hrithik for his dedication towards his work Kris said, "He (Hrithik) is good as a student and I appreciate his hard work. It made my job easy. And no wonder why he is at the top as an actor as he is very dedicated towards his work," Press Trust Of India reported.

"Krrish 3" is Hrithik's first release of 2013 and the actor will play triple role in the film.
