MUMBAI: With Krrish 3 smashing all records and collecting Rs 206.35 crore at the Bollywood box-office in its first 10 days, film-maker Rakesh Roshan is set to produce a sequel to the blockbuster.
“200 Crores Crossed. #Krrish3 collections reach 206.35 CR in 10 Days Thank You India,’’ said a tweet on the film’s official account on Monday.
With the superhero science fiction film set to smash more records, filmmaker Rakesh Roshan has announced the sequel to the blockbuster. But it will not be under the Krrish franchise, he said.
“I am currently not working on a film outside the Krrish franchise with Hrithik, but I will do a film in the future. I would love to direct him in a fresh script as soon as I am relieved from this franchise. I will start work on the sequel soon,’’ said Rakesh Roshan on Monday in Chennai where he had gone to celebrate the huge success of Krrish 3 in Tamil Nadu.
Hrithik, who was launched by his dad Rakesh Roshan in Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai in 2000, says in interview that his kids Hrehaan and Hridhaan and wife Suzanne too were fida on Krrish 3.
“She was happy to watch the film and my kids also loved the film. It’s very important that the people around you and your family must admire your work, otherwise if you go home and they don’t admire what you do, it is of no use,’’ said Hrithik.
Krrish 3 is the third film in the Krrish series, following Koi Mil Gaya and Krrish.
By collecting Rs 206 crore in its first 10 days, Krissh 3 has become the second highest grosser in Bollywood history after Chennai Express. It has left Ek Tha Tiger and 3 Idiots behind.
