Records are made to be broken and Rakesh Roshan’s superhero flick, ‘Krrish 3’ stands up to the saying as it is breaking one and another records and setting a new benchmark. It has been fortnight ‘Krrish 3’ was released and the film has made 228.23 crore in just 15 days.

Confirming this, highly ecstatic filmmaker Rakesh Roshan said: "This Friday`s collections were Rs.2.44 crore, which brings the total 15-day collection to Rs.228.23 crore. So yes, it looks like `Krrish 3` has broken all records."

"Records are made to be broken. We are happy that the merit and power of `Krrish` has been endorsed in just 15 days. And in such a short span of time our film has begun a journey of setting new records. God has been kind", the filmmaker added.

‘Krrish 3’, the third installment of the successful franchises ‘Krrish’ stars Hrithik Roshan as superhero, Priyanka as his ladylove and Vivek and Kangana as the two villains.

Analyzing the record-breaking success of ‘Krrish 3’, trade expert Taran Adarsh said: "The large number of screens and the ticket rates have definitely helped `Krrish 3` to undertake its record-breaking journey. But eventually everything boils down to the quality of the content. If the script is solid, there`s no stopping a film. Also, it must be kept in mind that if a film is to be a universal hit, it must cater to a universal audience."

Last Friday, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s big movie ‘Ram Leela’ was released but it seems there is no stopping for ‘Krrish 3’. The craze for ‘Krrish 3’ is undying.

Trade pundit Amod Mehra said: "Records are meant to be broken. With every new record, film stars are asking for more money. Exhibitors too are getting greedy. They keep increasing the ticket rates. Let`s see what strategy `Dhoom 3` adopts."
