The official trailer of Hrithik Roshan’s upcoming film Krrish 3 has broken the record of being the most-viewed video on YouTube for a Bollywood film. Not only this, the trailer has also broken the record of upcoming Hollywood films Avengers 2 and Thor 2. Launched on August 5, Krrish 3 trailer got around 48 lakh views in the first 3 days and crossed 70 lakh views in 6 days.


At the time of going to press the number of views was over 1 crore 33 lakh. While the views of Avengers 2 trailers were around 60 lakh and Thor 2 had been viewed by over 32 lakh people. “I’m delighted with the response to the teaser. I am glad I can serve my audience with something to aspire for, something inspiring,” Hrithik says.

The film also stars Priyanka Chopra, Vivek Oberoi and Kangana Ranaut, but while Priyanka has a blink-and-miss appearance in the trailer, Vivek has not been shown at all. Explaining the reason, director Rakesh Roshan says, “It’s a conscious decision. We want to keep the focus on the fact that Krrish is back. We’ll reveal other characters slowly and steadily.”
