Krrish 3 not in 3D

Rakesh Roshan doesn’t have time to release it in 3D

The trailer of ‘Krrish 3’ has released and needless to say the movie is buzzing the town with its hardcore special effects and action scenes, drawing in comparisons with similar Hollywood flicks. With the number 3 added to the title, there were speculations that the movie might be released in 3D. But Rakesh Roshan confirms that the film won’t be releasing in 3D as there is no time left to do so.

“No, I’m not releasing it in 3D because the time is too short to convert the film from 2D to 3D. We will do it but I’m a little skeptical about things and I want it to be perfect. So, I didn’t go for it because I don’t want the film to look tacky. There is no point hastening with 3D now and then the people not liking it,” says Rakesh and adds, “The next time, I will complete all my work and give it six months to convert it to 3D.”
This trend of 3D films came in with Hollywood with the advancement in technology. Most of the films coming with their third franchises hit the theatres in a 3D format. Films like ‘Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs’, ‘Step Up 3’, ‘Transformers Dark of the Moon’ etc, had the term 3D in sync with the title while it didn’t take time for Bollywood to follow this trend with ‘Razz 3D’ and ‘Haunted 3D’. However with ‘Krrish 3’ not happening in 3D, hopes lie on ‘Dhoom 3’. But let’s not get our hopes too high; because last we checked with Aamir Khan, who plays the villain in ‘Dhoom 3’, he wasn’t too sure of the whole idea.
As far as the promo of ‘Krrish 3’ goes, the film truly seems to be of Hollywood standards but Rakesh doesn’t believe so as he says, “A day will come when we will make a mark! We can’t compare our films to theirs as they have a big budget. If I was given those budgets, I could have made something much bigger and visually much better.”
‘Krrish 3’ releases on November 4, 2013 and stars Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranaut and Vivek Oberoi in lead roles respectively.
