At the domestic box office, the seventh-day earnings went down by 40 percent, compared to previous day and collected ₹13.44 crore.
The film opened to a good response on Friday and managed to rake in ₹25.50 crore. On Saturday and Sunday, the film maintained the pace collecting ₹23 crore and ₹24.3 crore, respectively.

After finishing its first week run, "Krrish 3" has set another milestone by breaking the record of Shah Rukh Khan's "Chennai Express". The science fiction film has the highest first week collections with ₹166.52 crore. The record was previously held by "Chennai Express," which had minted ₹156.7 crore. The third spot went to Salman Khan's "Ek Tha Tiger" with over ₹150 crore in first week earnings.
In the international market, the film had taken its first week total to ₹36 crore, but some screens are yet to report their figures.
