Two huge releases, Hrithik Roshan’s Krrish 3 and Tamil superstar Ajith’s Arrambam are all set for a huge battle at the South Indian box office.
Hrithik has a huge fan-following in the south, almost all his films have opened well in Tamilnadu, Karnataka, Kerala and Andhra Pradesh. But this time around, Arrambam is likely to affect the business of Krrish 3 in the south, especially in Tamilnadu.
The advance booking of both films kick-started on Saturday and the response has been phenomenal for both. In major cities, Krrish 3 tickets are selling like hot cakes. A few morning shows are ‘housefull’ in advance or filling up quickly. A few multiplexes are screening as many as 30 shows per day, with one show every 20-25 minutes!
Tickets of Arrambam too are in high demand. There are reports that several exhibitors are increasing the screens and shows of the film in Tamilnadu by reducing the shows of Krrish 3 and older releases.
In Karnataka, all shows of Arrambam on November 1st have been cancelled as the state celebrates ‘Rajyothsava’.
The South Indian territories will be important for Krrish 3, if it has to have any chance of break the opening day record of Chennai Express or crossing the 30 crore mark. What would make it even tougher is the fact that Friday is a working day.
