The superhero flick has raked in ₹237.76 crore from the country, which includes collections of Hindi, Tamil and Telugu versions, reported Bollywood Hungama.
The film had a good run at the box office but its collections have dropped from the third week, owing to the release of "Ram-leela". The figures have been way below the ₹4-crore mark since the third Friday.
Here is the day-wise breakup of the film's collections in India (15-18 November): ₹2.44 crore on day 15, ₹3.02 crore on day 16, ₹3.76 crore on day 17 and ₹1.39 crore on day 18.
On Tuesday (19 November), "Krrish 3" collected ₹1.15 crore in India. The film's 19-day day collections stand at ₹237.76 crore. It is expected to earn over ₹240 crore by the end of its fourth weekend. The film has already smashed two records set by Shah Rukh Khan's "Chennai Express." The masala entertainer was the highest grossing film of 2013, as well as the all-time highest grosser. "Krrish 3" broke those records in just 15 days.
The film is nearing the ₹250-crore mark at the domestic box office. It remains to be seen if it manages to set a new benchmark and start the ₹250-crore club. However, it is highly unlikely that the film will cross the ₹300-crore mark in India.
At overseas markets, "Krrish 3" has performed well and earned good collections. But the release of "Ram-leela" has affected the film's business in overseas markets as well. "Krrish 3" worldwide collections stand at around ₹277 crore. The film needs ₹23 crore to reach the ₹300 crore mark at the worldwide box office. But at this pace, it might not happen.
Directed by Rakesh Roshan, "Krrish 3" has Hrithik, Priyanka Chopra, Vivek Oberoi and Kangana Ranaut in pivotal roles.
