Initially, ‘Krrish 3’ was to release on Sunday, 3 November, 2013, but Rakesh Roshan, the film’s director took a decision to release it on 4 November. He said, “Sunday, 3 November is Laxmi puja. There are chances that people would prefer to stay indoors. Monday, which happens to be the Hindu New Year, is a holiday.”

Meanwhile, Hrithik Roshan will not only be making an appearance at Diwali but around Eid too if reports are to be believed. The trailer for ‘Krrish 3’ might be released along with Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone starrer ‘Chennai Express’ which releases on 8 August, 2013.

Kangna Ranaut, in the meantime, has revealed that her look in ‘Krrish 3’ will floor all men. “It’s alien cum superwoman cum Tomb Raider cum cat-woman sort of a character,” she described her character. She also mentioned that the action scenes were very challenging and that they were choreographed by an action director from China.

To keep the fans and audience members’ satisfied till then, the Twitter account of the film has come out with a teaser poster, which is as good as teaser posters get. We can only see a silhouette of the mask made famous in 2006 with ‘Krrish’.

‘Krrish 3’ being a superhero movie, and a sequel to a successful movie looks to be going for blockbuster status, especially with a Monday release. ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ released last year on a Wednesday, and everyone is aware of its box-office status. With a Monday release, that too during Diwali, ‘Krrish 3’ seems to have potentially two weeks on its hands to strengthen its position. It increasingly looks like it will be among the top earners of the year.
