Let us tell you that ‘Koi… Mil Gaya’ was a science fiction film released in 2003, directed and produced by Rakesh Roshan. It stars Hrithik Roshan and Preity Zinta in lead roles, with Rekha in a supporting role. The film had Rakesh Roshan in a cameo role. Apart from writing the story, Rakesh Roshan has also written the screenplay along with Sachin Bhowmik, Honey Irani and Robin Bhatt. ‘Koi… Mil Gaya’ centers on Rohit (Hrithik Roshan), an intellectually challenged boy, who comes into contact with an alien and performs miracles in the scientific field.
The film follows Rohit’s relationship with his friend Nisha (Zinta), who falls in love with him. Indravadan Purohit played the role of magic in this film. Unfortunately Purohit passed away on September 28, 2014.
