Krrish 3 has got the best opening of all Hrithik Roshan films to date. It is on the course to be a blockbuster.
The Krrish 3 team is certainly going to have a very Happy Diwali on Sunday. The film, starring Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranaut and Vivek Oberoi, opened to a very good start of Rs. 25 crore net from its Hindi and dubbed versions on Friday.
This is the best opening yet for any Hrithik Roshan release. Even Agneepath could only manage Rs. 23 crore opening in January last year. Back then, it was the highest opening ever for any Bollywood film. How greatly things change in just a year.
Krrish 3 is doing great at multiplexes and good at single screens. The response on Friday -- a non-holiday mind you -- was in the range of 80 percent to housefull. With 25 crores, Krrish 3 has emerged the second biggest opener of 2013, only second to Chennai Express during Eid.
It remains to be seen how Krrish 3 fares on Saturday and Sunday, because a lot of theatre going public will be busy with Diwali preparations and puja rituals. Also let’s not forget, a holiday on Tuesday can shoot up the film’s collection skyward.
