In the opening week, Krrish 3 could not get required number of screens due to Tamil big releases. After much effort, it got only 60+ screens.
But the positive talks around the movie made Krrish 3 to get additional 25+ screens in the next week. Very rarely, a movie gets additional screens in the following week.
