Aamir Khan's "PK" ("Peekay") has done good business on its 16th day (third Saturday) and has minted around ₹9.20 crore at the Indian box office. The film's total collections (16 days) stand at ₹294 crore, according to Koimoi. It is all set to enter the ₹300-crore club by Sunday and become the first Indian film to achieve the feat.
"PK" has already surpassed the highest grossing film "Dhoom 3" and has emerged as the top grosser of all time. The comedy drama flick is all set to create a new record by entering the ₹300-crore club. It was Aamir himself who created the ₹100 crore ("Ghajini") and ₹200 crore ("3 Idiots") clubs in India.
The film emerged as an all-time blockbuster and has made huge profits at the box office. According to Koimoi, "PK" has made 246% profit by minting ₹209 crore in Return on Investments (ROI). The film has emerged as the second-most profitable venture of 2014 by beating "Yaariyan", which had made 233% profits. Kangana Ranaut's "Queen" is at the top spot with 369% profits.
"PK" is performing fantastic business not just in India, but also in overseas markets. The film has grossed ₹557 crore at the worldwide box office.
The Aamir-starrer is expected to create a few more records including that of becoming the first Bollywood film to cross $10 million mark at the North American box office and the first one that might cross the $100 million mark at the worldwide box office.
The Rajkumar Hirani directorial is expected to perform decent business in its third and fourth weeks. The film is likely to dominate the screens in the fourth week despite new releases including Arjun Kapoor-Sonakshi Sinha's "Tevar."
"PK" has set the bar high for new releases and it will be interesting to see if any of the upcoming big films of 2015 will surpass "PK" collections and emerge as the highest grossing film of all time.
The year 2015 will see a string of big films such as Salman Khan's "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" and "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo," Shah Rukh Khan's "Fan" and Ranbir's "Jagga Jasoos" and "Tamasha" hitting the screens.
