Hrithik hurt by speculations over ‘Krrish 3’ earnings
Mumbai: Hrithik Roshan has slammed reports that he and his producer-director father Rakesh Roshan inflated the collection figures of their last release ‘Krrish 3‘.
The 39-year-old actor, recently in news for his separation with wife Sussanne Roshan, reiterated that the superhero film earned Rs 244 crores in India and Rs 55 crore overseas.
“Some from the industry and certain sections of the media are hell bent on putting me, my father and ‘Krrish 3’ down. I have maintained my silence until now but these derogatory manipulations need to stop. ‘Krrish 3’ has done a business of about 244 cr in India and around 55 cr overseas. I wonder who these people are who have been so affected by these numbers and my success,” Hrithik posted on his Facebook page.
The actor wondered in his long post whether the rumours were started by his so-called friends in the industry but did not take any names.
“Are they the ones I call my friends I wonder? I would like to tell them that they need not ever be insecure about another man’s success because all they need to do is concentrate on their own hard work which in turn will help them achieve what they want.
“Believe in karma. As my father and I do. And one last thing about my father and me as a team- we have only just begun,” he wrote.
‘Krrish 3’ hit theatres on November 1 last year and was among the top earning films of 2013, others being ‘Dhoom 3’, which reportedly has made Rs 500 crores and SRK-starrer ‘Chennai Express’.
