BOLLYWOOD: Rakesh Roshan’s Krrish 3 has become a far larger box-office bet than what was expected.
The collections on Saturday were Rs.14.23 crore, bringing the total collections of Krissh 3 for the 9 days release to Rs 189.71 crores.
On Sunday the collections crossed Rs 200 crores.
Rakesh Roshan reaps the entire profits alone since he has not tied up with any corporate production house for Krrish 3.
Says the jubilant producer-director, “On Sunday we indeed crossed Rs 200 crores. Our total 10-day collection on Sunday was Rs 206.06 crores. What can I say? It’s beyond what we had ever imagined.”
Trade experts are sure Krrish 3 has many many miles to go before it slips.The fact that Ram Gopal Varma’s Satya 2 which opened this Friday is a wash-out gives Krrish 3 a clear week until the release of Ram Leela next week.
Says Taran Adarsh, “I think Krrish 3 will dominate the box-office until Thursday because Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram Leela will take over from Friday. My prediction is that the final box-office collection of Krrish 3 would touch a figure between Rs 225 and Rs 250 crores.”
Adds Amod Mehra, “After seeing Krrish 3 I had predicted it would do minimum business of Rs 250 crores. Now it looks like it will cross Rs 300 crores.”
