"That is so cool. Opening higher than a franchise film like 'Krrish 3' and beating my own record is one way to realise my own growth and strength. But after that, it's not about me, I'm just glad I've been able to entertain my audience," Hrithik said in a statement.

The "Krrish" franchise began with the 2003 hit sci-fi movie "Koi... Mil Gaya". And "Krrish 3", which released November 1st, 2013, was the third installment in the franchise.

"Bang Bang!" is high in star quotient with Katrina Kaif romancing Hrithik at all the exotic locations like Prague, Greece, London. Produced by Fox Star Studios, the film has been helmed by Siddharth Anand and was released October 2.

The Greek god of Bollywood also acknowledged the hard work and dedication of the whole crew which led to the success of the film.

"And the entire credit for this humongous success goes to the whole starcast, the entire crew and especially to the director Sid Anand. I stand here in gratitude," he added in the statement.
