After contemplating the release of Krrish 3 first on Sunday, November 3 and then Monday, November 4, filmmaker Rakesh Roshan has now decided to unleash his much awaited superhero flick starring Hrithik Roshan on Friday, November 1. The filmmaker communicated the decision to all his distributors and exhibitors over the weekend.
Apparently, the idea of releasing the film, also starring Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranaut and Vivek Oberoi, on November 1 was suggested to him by his distributors, exhibitors and even overseas associates.
Confirms Rakesh Roshan, “This year, Dhanteras, the first day of Diwali, is on November 1. And it’s a holiday for most people. My distributors and exhibitors, even those overseas, wondered why I was not making use of the holidays. Fortunately or unfortunately, it’s for the first time in many years that Diwali and Lakshmi Puja are falling on Sunday. No one knows the repercussions of a pre-Diwali release. But since everyone is keen on a Friday release, I’ll be releasing Krrish 3 on November 1.”
