Rakesh Roshan's latest directorial
venture Krrish 3, the third installment in the
Krrish series, has got an overwhelming response in India.
Although its business was affected by the Diwali festivities, the
Hrithik Roshan starrer has done
astounding collection at the Indian Box
Office in the first weekend. It has become biggest opener for
Hrithik, beating the three days record of his previous outing
Agneepath in the domestic market. Krrish 3 Has 2nd Highest Collection At Overseas Box
Office Krrish 3 started on a historic note with 85% occupancy in
multiplexes and 100% occupancy in single screens on Friday. The
Hrithik Roshan, Kangna Ranaut and Priyanka
Chopra starrer collected Rs 25.5 crores nett at the Indian Box
Office on first day. With this, the sci-fi film smashed the opening
day record of Agneepath, which was the biggest opener in
Hrithik's career with its collection - Rs 23 crores nett.
The much-hyped movie Krrish 3 was expected to witness a
big jump on the following days. Having garnered mixed talk, the
film dipped by 10% on Saturday. Although its business went up on
Sunday, it remained lower when compared to its opening day
collection. The film, which released with Hindi, Tamil, Telugu

on Sat and Rs 24.3 cr on Sun.
Shahrukh Khan's recent release Chennai Express, which
is the all time highest grosser Hindi movie, had collected Rs 93.67
crores at the Indian Box Office in the first weekend. Including its
business (Rs 6.75 cr) in paid previews, its first-weekend
collection had crossed Rs 100 crore mark. Having released in nearly
4,000 screens in the domestic market, Krrish 3 was
expected to beat the record of the SRK starrer, but the superhero
film has fallen back with a big margin.
