It looks like Hrithik Roshan has overtaken Shah Rukh Khan in one important category, the all-time Indian domestic box-office record as his latest film continues to topple box-office records. ‘Krrish 3‘ has passed SRK’s latest film ‘Chennai Express‘ with a robust $36.3 million domestic box-office take compared to the $36.1 million that ‘Chennai Express‘ generated.

The third installment in Hrithik’s super-hero franchise was once again directed by his father Rakesh Roshan and featured Priyanka Chopra and Vivek Oberoi, among others. Despite the success of the film, ‘Chennai Express‘ still made more money overall as it made $19 million overseas compared to the $6.2 million that ‘Krrish 3‘ took in. If you’re looking for the most successful Bollywood movie of all-time, however, you’ll have to look past dashing superheroes or SRK’s action capers to a comedy. That’s right, Aamir Khan‘s 2009 film ‘3 Idiots‘ still holds the title as the most successful Bollywood movie of all time with over $60 million in box-office receipts.

Look to Aamir Khan to try and break his own record with his latest film (and the third installment of another trilogy) ‘Dhoom 3‘, which is set to be released on December 20th. Aamir plays alongside Katrina Kaif, Abhishek Bachchan, and Uday Chopra in the action-thriller that is set in Chicago this time around.  ‘Dhoom 3‘ is the first Indian film to by played in the IMAX format and hits theaters around the Christmas holiday season.

In a summer full of broken records by Bollywood films, yet another benchmark has fallen by the wayside as the newly released trailer for ‘Krrish 3‘ has been viewed by more people than any other Bollywood movie.  The trailer received 2.3 million views on its first day on Youtube.com, thus surpassing the old record of 1 million views in one day held by ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan‘, and is up to 12.2 million views in 10 days!

The 3rd installment of the Indian superhero franchise will yet again have Hrithik Roshan playing titular superhero Krishna Mehra along with Priyanka Chopra, Vivek Oberoi, Shaurya Chauhan, and Kangna Ranaut.

Let’s take a look at the trailer and see what all the fuss is about, shall we?

Not bad, you half expect Dr. Octupus and Spiderman to jump on screen and join the battles! The movie’s release date is set for Diwali 2013 (Sunday, November 3) but the movie has faced some unexpected delays including Hrithik’s brain surgery from a stunt accident and Shaurya Chauhan’s injury from an unrelated accident on set.
