KRRISH 3 has worked with the audience and in the process, Hrithik Roshan has now scored his second successive 100 crore hit after AGNEEPATH (2012). With this, he has joined the likes of Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar, Ranbir Kapoor and John Abraham, each of whom has two centuries against their name.
AGNEEPATH and KRRISH 3
Not just that as in the process, his film (with a total of ~150 crore so far) has beaten his highest grosser so far - AGNEEPATH (120 crore).
"KRRISH 3 had a good start over the weekend and though pre-Diwali release period meant that 100 crore weekend record of CHENNAI EXPRESS was left untouched, superb collections on Monday and Tuesday (which were holidays in most parts of the country) did the trick. The Rakesh Roshan directed film is doing great guns now," informs a source.
For Hrithik, who worked on the film for over 20 months, this has been a long wait indeed considering the fact that he does only selected films.
"It is always a double edged sword since he puts all his money on one film. Fortunately the strategy has been working for him since the days of ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA (2011). The film came precariously close to being a 100 crore success (it eventually folded up at 90 crores) but AGNEEPATH (2012) and now KRRISH 3 (2013) has resulted in a hat trick of huge successes for him. He is clearly on the top of the game," a prominent filmmaker adds.
The countdown has now begun for the film to race towards the 200 crore mark. Will that happen? In good probability, it would.
