After making Rs 100 crore within four days of its release, sci-fi flick Krrish 3 starring Hrithik Roshan has crossed the Rs. 150 crore mark after six days at the box office. And now, it is getting set to enter the relatively less crowded Rs. 200 crore club, if trade analysts are to be believed.
"I expect Krrish 3 to cross Rs. 200 crore mark in India by the second weekend of its release. It will be the third film to join the Rs. 200 crore club after 3 Idiots and Chennai Express," said trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
Adarsh also posted the current break-up of the superhero flick on Twitter, "#Krrish3 crosses Rs. 150 cr mark in India. Wed: Rs. 18.11 cr. Total: Rs. 152.98 cr. FABULOUS."
The film's release before Diwali was a gamble that paid off.
“Pre-Diwali is the worst period of the year as many theatre owners keep their doors closed because of renovation and re-painting. Rakesh Roshan did a very daring thing by going against norms of the trade and releasing the film,” trade expert Amod Mehra said.
Apart from Hrithik Roshan, the film also stars Priyanka Chopra, Vivek Oberoi and Kangana Ranaut in important roles.
