Rakesh Roshan and the 'Krrish 3' team wanted to make Children's Day special for fans of the super-hero series and Hrithik Roshan. Ticket rates were to be slashed on Children's Day.

However, apparently, the film exhibitors and distributors could not arrive at a collective consensus to lower ticket rates for a day, no matter how special the day.

A representative of a leading multiplex chain in Mumbai reveals, "There was a proposal to bring down the ticket rates of 'Krrish 3' on Children's Day. But November 14 also happens to be Moharram. We didn't want to lose out on holiday crowds for 'Krrish 3' a day before the release of 'Ram-Leela' when we expect a fall in footfalls for 'Krrish 3' anyway. So all fiscal relief for Children's Day stands cancelled."

Rakesh Roshan denies reports that appeared on Tuesday that ticket rates are being slashed by 40 to 45 percent.

Says the producer-director, "The distributors are working out a scheme for Children's Day. But we haven't decided what the scheme would be. Children's Day happens to coincide with Moharram this year, so it's a holiday. We'll soon make an announcement."
