Krrish 3 Box Office collections inflated?
on November 22, 2013
While there’s a gaga over Krrish 3‘s record breaking spree and how it is claimed to be the fastest film to enter the Rs. 200 crore club, trade experts beg to differ. Also, Roshans have been claiming that Krrish 3 is the highest domestic Bollywood grosser of all time.
A trade analyst confirmed that the figures quoted by the Roshan’s have irked Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan, as they feel that these figures are inflated. Also, the trade analyst alleges that these figures are gross and not nett like Salman’s ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and Aamir’s ‘3 Idiots’. The figures quoted by Roshans include what they have earned from Hindi, Tamil and Telugu versions. The report further says that since only Hindi collections is considered as national, the nett figure of ‘Krrish 3’ is only Rs. 183 crore.
Industry sources allege that Roshans were in a hurry to prove that Krrish 3 has broken all records, especially Salman’s Ek Tha Tiger (Rs 197.14 crore), Aamir’s 3 Idiots (Rs 202 crore), and Chennai Express (Rs. 227 crore). However, the truth is that Chennai Express is still the highest grosser and also the highest opening day grosser in India.
Admist all these allegations Rakesh Roshan is denying all of it and maintains that the film has made Rs. 237 crore in India.
