With Krrish 3, Rakesh Roshan is
taking forward his sci-fi
superhero franchise with son
Hrithik Roshan in the lead. But
will this mega budget film live
up to expectations. Will it
become the highest grossing
film of this year? We find out….
Director Rakesh Roshan’s Koi Mil
Gaya and Krrish set the cash
registers ringing. Now the
successful director is back with
Krrish 3 , the third installment of
his superhero series – this one
stars Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka
Chopra, Kangna Ranaut and Vivek
Oberoi. Krrish 3 has at all – star
power, visual effects, new-age
villain and great buzz. Surely it
can’t get better than this! But will
it rule the box office this Diwali?
Will Krrish 3 get a thunderous
start? Exhibitor-distributor Akshaye
Rathi says, “Krrish 3 is undoubtedly
one of the big ticket movies
releasing this year! While the
numbers from the first three days
may not be as big as they would
have been if the film had released
on the 4th because of the activities
people keep busy with pre-Diwali,
the film is sure to rake in a lot of
money in its overall run at the
cinemas.”
Most filmmakers bank on public
holidays to boost their film’s
prospects at the ticket windows.
That’s what Senior Roshan is also
hoping for by releasing Krrish 3
during the Diwali weekend. Plus,
the Hrithik Roshan -Priyanka
Chopra starrer has no competition
at the box office, which will prove
to be a huge advantage. “The
trailers are doing fantastic and the
buzz is great around the film;
however, Krrish 3 lacks in music.
But since it’s a solo release and
that too during Diwali weekend,
Krrish 3 will benefit from this,”
points out distributor Sunny
Khanna.
With so many factors working in its
favour, will Rakesh Roshan’s latest
offering beat the box office record
of Chennai Express , the Shahrukh
Khan-Deepika Padukone starrer?
“Chennai Express was a solo release
during Eid and managed to get cash
registers ringing. So is Krrish 3 at
Diwali. Also, the ticket prices of the
superhero film are higher in
multiplexes, just like Chennai
Express. In that way, there is lot of
similarity between the two films.
But as far as beating the record of
Chennai Express is concerned, I
think the movie will collect around
Rs 180-200 crores, but that’s just
an estimation. The collections can
go beyond that,” added Khanna.
Rohit Shetty’s romcom became the
first film ever to cross Rs 100 crore
nett in its opening weekend. Will
Krrish 3 outdo SRK’s film and race
ahead? “Rs 100 crores should
surely be crossed in the first four
days, by Monday. In fact, the film
would have surely crossed the
lifetime figure of Chennai Express
had the songs been better, but the
chances are even despite that,”
believes Rathi.
Whether Krrish 3 breaks all the
records set by Chennai Express is
to be seen. But one thing is for
sure, it will be a dhamakedaar
Diwali at the box office with Hrithik
back in his black cape and more
super-power!
