Mumbai, Aug 18 (PTI) Bollywood superstar Hrithik Roshan on Thursday revealed popular film franchise "The Lord of the Rings" had inspired his filmmaker-father Rakesh Roshan to turn "Koi... Mil Gaya" into a movie series.

During a promotional event for streaming service Prime Video's upcoming series "The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power", Hrithik said his father had watched Peter Jackson's acclaimed "Lord of the Rings" film trilogy and was inspired by the progression of the story, based on JRR Tolkien's books.

"There's a little connection between me and 'The Lord of the Rings' that I don't think anybody knows. So, one random day back in 2004, my dad put on 'The Lord of the Rings'.
