Hrithik Roshan's superhero flick "Krrish 3" is all set to open with a bang on Friday (1 November) in both the Indian as well as overseas market.
The advance booking of the science fiction film, directed and produced by Rakesh Roshan, has got a good response from theaters across India. At some places the advance booking ticket window was opened two weeks before the release.
The film, which is expected to release in 4000 screens in India, has already registered around 40-50 percent advance booking occupancy in multiplexes of the metropolitan cities like Delhi and Mumbai.
The film will have more than 180 shows daily in circuits like Bangalore, Pune, Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad and others places. The tickets at most of the places are either sold out or are filling fast.
The pre-booking occupancy in single screens is also picking up fast. Single screen in places like UP, Bihar, CP, CI and Punjab have also shown record pre-booking occupancy.
According to boxofficeindia, "Krrish 3" advance booking at some circuits are much better than the last week release "Mickey Virus".
In south circuits also, the film is expected to open to a roaring response and affect the business of films like "Bhai", "Attarintiki Daredi" and "Ramayya Vasthavayya".
The movie has created lot of hype and expectations among the trade analysts and Hrithik fans. The only roadblock for the film is that, "Krrish 3" is releasing on a non-holiday Friday so collections from the morning and afternoon shows is expected to remain dull.
Being Diwali, the collections on Saturday and Sunday will be lower than normal weekend for big films. The earning is expected to grow only on Monday since it's a Diwali holiday in several places.
In overseas market, the film is releasing in more than 550 screens in over 40 countries, according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
The overseas and domestic screen is one of the highest recorded for a Bollywood film. But it remains to be seen whether the film will create the magic like the last two franchises "Koi... Mil Gaya" and 'Krrish" did at collection centers.
