Krrish 3 starring Hirthik Roshan has made stupendous collections at the Box Office. The early reports say that the Hindi movie has made Rs 23 crores on the opening day (November 1) in India. The Bollywood movie could have done a lot better in Tamil Nadu. But the release of Ajith Kumar's Arrambam affected Krrish 3 at the Box Office in the state.
Reports say that Hrithik Roshan has a huge fan following in Tamil Nadu. Like the Khans (Shahrukh, Aamir and Salman Khan), his movies have been doing well in the state. But for his latest movie Krrish 3, the distributor could not get much screens. Shibu Thameens tried his best to get maximum number of screens, but managed to get only 60 screens in the state.
It is mainly because of Tamil flick Arrambam. Adding to that, other Tamil Diwali releases like All in All Azhagu Raja and Pandiya Nadu, which are releasing today, played the spoilsport for Krrish 3. Multiplexes in Chennai dedicated major number of screens to the Ajith Kumar's movie on Friday (November 1). And they gave on limited screens to Krrish 3.
Traders say that Krrish 3 was given such screens, which had limited capacity. Continue reading the story on the slideshow...
Good Fan Following
Traders add that it was sad because in spite of Hrithik Roshan enjoying a good fan following here, his much-hyped Krrish 3 only got limited screens.
3 Tamil Movies To Rule TN BO
This affected Krrish 3 a lot. The near future for the Hindi movie in Tamil Nadu is not exciting as three Tamil movies will be ruling the majority of the screens for the next few weeks.
A Fan Speaks...
A fan of Hrithik Roshan at a multiplex said, "The hype around Arrambam has made theatre owners to prefer the Tamil movie over Krrish 3. We are obviously disappointed."
The fan adds, "In the coming weeks, we wish that Krrish 3 will get more number of screens as Hrithik Roshan's fans in the state are keen to watch the Hindi movie."
The only relief that came for Krrish 3 is that the state government's permission to have five shows for single screens for the next one week. This will ease the hype around the Tamil movies and help the Hindi movie to increase its screening in the coming days.
Science Fiction Movie
Krrish 3 is a superhero science fiction movie. It is a sequel to Krrish and Koi Mil Gaya. Hrithik Roshan, Vivek Oberoi, Priyanka Chopra and Kangna Ranaut are in the lead roles.
