Bollywood stars Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra are apparently set to give tough competition to their former co-star Kareena Kapoor.

According to recent reports, Hrithik-Priyanka starrer "Krrish 3" will hit screens on 4 November, just days ahead of the release of Kareena-Imran Khan starrer "Gori Tere Pyaar Mein".

The Punit Malhotra directorial "Gori Tere Pyaar Mein" is still in the filming stage and the tentative release date is 15 November.

Earlier, the makers of superhero science fiction "Krrish 3" had decided to release the film on 3 November but later delayed it by a day.

Announcing the release date, the film's director and producer Rakesh Roshan said, "'Krrish 3' will finally release on November 4, that is Monday," IANS reported.

Stating the reason behind postponing the release date a source close to the Roshan clan said, "The Diwali day, that is November 3, had been locked in for the release. But then distributors and exhibitors felt people like to stay home on Diwali night for Laxmi Puja. It was felt November 4, that is the day after Diwali, would be far more favourable as a release date for 'Krrish 3'."

Earlier, it was said that the trailer of the much hyped film will be unveiled along with Shah Rukh Khan-Deepika Padukone starrer "Chennai Express" which is due to release on 8 August.

Confirming the reports of the trailer launch Rakesh said, "Yes, our trailers will be out on August 8."

The "Krrish 3" team also released an animated logo of the film on 23 June.

"Krrish 3" is the third edition of the 2003 blockbuster film "Koi... Mil Gaya" which was followed by its sequel "Krrish" in 2006. Apart from Priyanka Chopra and Hrithik Roshan, who will be playing a triple role, the film will also feature Vivek Oberoi and Kangna Ranaut.

Speaking about her role in the film Kangna said, "My look in 'Krrish 3' is going to floor all men. It's alien cum superwoman cum Tomb Raider cum cat-woman sort of a character. It was a very challenging film as it had lot of action sequences. They were choreographed by an action director from China," PTI reported.
