Mumbai, Oct 4 (TruthDive): Filmmaker Rakesh Roshan Thursday confirmed that his much-awaited movie Krrish 3 will now release November 1 instead of November 4.
Rakesh Roshan said the decision was made after the distributors and exhibitors asked him to release the film on November 1. He agreed with them, so now Krrish 3 will release on November 1, he said.
To cash in on the Diwali weekend, the release date of Hrithik Roshan’s most awaited superhero flick Krrish 3 has been advanced. Diwali is falling on a Sunday, so, Rakesh says it is good to release the film before that.
Krrish 3 is the third film in the franchise that started with Koi Mil Gaya in 2003, featuring Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Vivek Oberoi and Kangana Ranaut in key roles. The second film in the franchise is Krrish in 2006. Both films did outstanding business and were box-office blockbusters.
Director by Rakesh Roshan started the work on Krrish 3 in 2007. Unhappy with how the script had shaped up, Rakesh Roshan re-wrote the entire script and announced that the film would go on floors in December 2011.
The process of finalising the star cast was also not as smooth as expected. Apart from Hrithik Roshan as Krrish and Priyanka Chopra as his lady-love, the search was on for the antagonists of the film. Vivek Oberoi bagged the film’s main villain charcter, which he considers as the biggest role of his career.
Initially, Chitrangada Singh was selected to reprise the role of a mutant. Unfortunately due to date issues or Chitrangada not being too happy with the character offered to her, she was replaced by Jacqueline Fernandes. Jacqueline too opted out and finally the very talented Kangna Ranaut was signed. Model turned actor Shaurya Chauhan too was signed to play one of the negative characters.
Finally, the shooting for Krrish 3 began on December 1st 2011 and all promotions are going in a fast pace to release the movie on November 1.
