After receiving mild and lukewarm reviews from critics, the film’s tremendously fabulous performance is consistently luring the audiences to flock the theaters this festive season. The Hrithik Roshan starrer Krrish 3 has already emerged as a trendsetter of sorts ala Hollywood superhero flicks. The film’s exemplary performance compelled Koimoi to compile for you a list of records set by the film.
Highest Non-Holiday Release:
Though released to target the Diwali crowd at the box office, the film including the amount raked up from its Tamil and Telugu shows managed to become the highest grossing non holiday release. Surpassing the prevailing record of Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone starrer YJHD that made 19.45 crores on its opening day. Krrish 3 despite a similar release managed to earn way more and pulled off a whopping 24.25 crores at the box office.
Second Fastest 100 Crore Entrant
The film almost leveled Chennai Express‘ record of being the fastest joiner of the 100 crore club. The SRK-Deepika starrer made it to the club in 3 days (along with collections from paid previews as well). Krrish 3 reached the 100 crore mark in 4 days perhaps suffering at the hand of Diwali festivities that withheld its growth over the festive weekend.
Highest Single Day Collection Ever and Highest Monday
The film recorded the highest single day collections ever made by a Bollywood film. While before Krrish 3, Chennai Express held the record by making an opening day income 33.10 crores which was beaten by Krrish 3‘s whopping Day 4 moolah of 36 crores. That also draws us to the point that Krrish 3‘s 36 crores on 1st Monday is the highest Monday collections ever recorded. Since it is customary for income to drop on Monday, the semi-holiday Monday worked in favor of the film.
Fastest 150 Crores Joiner
Krrish 3 is the fastest joiner of the 150 crore club. While only few esteemed films have crossed the high octave mark, Krrish 3 reached the same at an unbelievable pace beating even Chennai Express‘ speed which had only made 137 crores by the end of 1st Wednesday (including Paid Prevews) at the box office.
Hrithik’s Highest Grosser
The film ranks as the highest grosser of actor Hrithik Roshan whose highest ever was Karan Johar and Karan Malhotra’s Agneepath which settled for a lifetime run of 123 crores at the box office. Krrish 3 is less than a week has already surpassed all his previous records with utmost ease.
Priyanka Chopra’s Highest Grosser & 4th entrant in the 100 crore club
Though Priyanka Chopra’s films have entered the distinguished club before with ventures like Don 2, Agneepath and Barfi!, Krrish 3 has been the highest grosser of them so far besides being her fourth film in the 100 crore club.
Hrithik’s Highest Opening Weekend Overseas Grosser
While Hrithik Roshan’s star value is quite a rage in the overseas due to the actor’s smoldering looks, Krrish 3 that has so far made 25.67 crores ranks as the highest opening weekend film ever record by the actor. While stints like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Jodhaa Akbar, Agneepath and Dhoom 2 have all been promising, the numbers Krrish 3 has evoked is way higher than his other films.
2nd Highest Opening Weekend Grosser of 2013
Krrish 3 is the 2nd Highest opening weekend grosser of this year after Shah Rukh Khan’s Chennai Express that made 100.35 in its opening weekend. Krrish 3 holds the second position with an opening weekend amount of 68 crores.
Kangana Ranaut’s 1st 100 crore movie & Highest Grosser Ever
Krrish 3 is Kangana Ranaut’s first film to join the 100 crore club. The actress, who joined the industry at a very young age, has evolved into a poised woman of grace and elan over time, sharpening her acting skills and picking up versatile projects.
Vivek Oberoi’s Back To Back 100 Crore Films
The actor was known to be withstanding a few very dry years in terms of box office productivity but 2013 has worked charmingly well for him. The actor whose last film Grand Masti entered the 100 crore club very pompously, soon after delivered another maverick hit with Krrish 3 that in no time joined the 100 crore club.
