Hrithik Roshan’s Krrish 3 has opened to an earth-shattering response at the India box office. The film is running to 90% opening occupancy at multiplexes and close to 100% at single screens.
There was a mad rush for tickets in the morning, long lines outside single screens where extra seats are being added to accomodate more people.
Morning business is on par with holiday releases like Chennai Express and Ek Tha Tiger last year. But noon shows are likely to witness a drop, as today is a working day in all states of India except Karnataka where it is a holiday for Rajyostav.
Krrish 3 is likely to beat the record for highest non-holiday release. But it remains to be seen how close it can get to Chennai Express which released on a national holiday.
