Hrithik Roshan’s Krrish 3 has collected Rs 25 – 26 crore on its opening day at the box office. This includes business from the Hindi version which released on 3700 screens, Telugu and Tamil version which released on approx 400 screens across the country.
The early estimates that we published late last night, were comparatively lower, but with ‘actuals’ coming in, the Hindi release has collected approx 23-24 crore, while the regional versions have added around 2 crore to its Day 1 business.
Krrish 3 now holds the record for the highest non-holiday business, ahead of films like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (19.5 cr) and Dabangg 2 (21.1 cr). Even though business in the evening and night were affected due to the pre-diwali period, the film has still managed to put up reasonably good number.
On Saturday morning, Krrish 3 has started well. It remains to be seen how the Diwali festivities affect business in the evening.
Hrithik Roshan tweeted “Pre diwali non holiday gets 25.5cr for Krrish 3! Congrats to my team Krrish! Thank u INDIA! How do I give back this love to all of u? Gratitude!!!”
