Hrithik Roshan starrer Krrish 3 which released in 4000 screens across Indian on November 1 and it was very much expected that the movie will beat all the recors of Shahrukh Khan starrer Chennai Express, which managed to create several benchmarks with its monstrous collection from over 3500 screens at the Indian Box Office in the first weekend. Rakesh Roshan’s directorial venture, ‘Krrish 3’ failed to do so in the first three days but interestingly, the superhero flick has picked up very well on weekdays and managed to thrash the six days record for the domestic collections.

Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to write about the movie’s collections, “And *highest single day* record lies shattered. #Krrish3 collects History on Mon. Collects Rs 35.91 cr. The highest *single day* figure EVER. Also, #Krrish3 hits a ton. Crosses Rs 100 cr mark on Mon. Fri to Mon: Rs 108.61 cr.”
Interestinly, Krrish 3 managed to garner audience and attract them to theatres on the following day too. The movie has crossed Rs 150 crore mark at the domestic Box Office in just six days. On Wednesday, Taran Adarsh tweeted, “It’s a rocking Tuesday! #Krrish3 is on a record-smashing spree. Collects Rs 26.26 cr. Total: Rs 134.87 cr. AWESOME.” This morning (November 7), the trade expert added, “#Krrish3 crosses Rs 150 cr mark in India. Wed: Rs 18.11 cr. Total: Rs 152.98 cr. FABULOUS.”
However, Chennai Express collected Rs 156.7 crores nett at the Indian Box Office in seven days and its six-day domestic total was Rs 137.10 crores nett. Its breakup was Rs 6.75 cr in Paid Preview on Thursday, Rs 33.12 cr on Friday, Rs 28.05 cr on Saturday, Rs 32.5 cr on Sun, Rs 12.62 cr on Monday, Rs 11.5 cr on Tuesday, Rs 12.56 cr on Wednesday and Rs 19.6 cr on Thursday.
