"It was a decision taken by the distributors and exhibitors that the film should come on November 1. I agreed with them, so now the movie will release on November 1," Rakesh Roshan said.
Diwali falls on November 3, which is a Sunday.
"Diwali is coming on a Sunday, so it is good to release the film before that," he added.
'Krrish 3', the third film in the franchise that began with 'Koi Mil Gaya' in 2003, features Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Vivek Oberoi and Kangna Ranaut in key roles.
