It needed no rocket science to have predicted that the next in the KRRISH series, the Hrithik Roshan-Priyanka Chopra starrer, KRRISH 3, was sure to embark on a huge start, and that is exactly what has happened. The film has commenced on the best opening day since/post CHENNAI EXPRESS and BESHARAM, netting in the 18-20 crore range.
Coming to the number crunching, KRRISH 3 has on an average opened with 80-100 percent occupancy, the higher percentage(s) being reported from the single screens, which are simply magical.
The best performance of KRRISH 3 has been reported from parts of Delhi-NCR, U.P, Rajasthan and even some stations of Bihar-Jharkhand. The performance is all the more creditable as the first day was expected to be low due to the dull pre-Diwali phase.
With two big days of Diwali coming up (Saturday and Sunday), and even Monday being a holiday in many parts of India (Bhaiyya Dooj), the film is expected to get near to the century mark (about 80-85 crore), at the end of the 4-day run.
As we file this report, as per the inputs from the overseas, KRRISH 3 is performing superbly, with UAE-Gulf (where it released on Thursday) expected to put up magical numbers (about AED1.4m) for the opening day.
