Yash Raj Films' "Dhoom 3" continues to have a strong hold at the box office, despite the presence of new releases. The screen count of the film has gone down drastically as it enters its fourth week but the film continues to rake in the moolah.
The Aamir Khan starrer has raked in ₹277.73 crore in three weeks from the domestic box office and $25.78 million [₹159.74 crore] from the overseas markets, according to trade analyst Taran Adrash. The worldwide nett total of the film stands at ₹437.47 crore.
"Dhoom 3" is getting close to the ₹300 crore mark but the collection has declined from its third and fourth week. It is quite likely that "Dhoom 3" will eventually surpass the triple century mark and trade analysts are expecting it to set a new benchmark.
"Dhoom 3 is doing extremely well, and the kind of business it has done so far is unheard of. It is the fastest film to reach ₹ 100 crore and was even faster to enter the ₹ 200 crore club. Mind you, Aamir gave the industry's first ₹ 100 crore film in 'Ghajini', first ₹ 200 crore in '3 Idiots' and 'Dhoom 3' has a very bright chance to earn ₹ 300 crore," trade analyst Komal Nahata told Financial Express.
Meanwhile, the 3D version of the classic "Sholay" also continues to rake in decent amounts from collection centers in the country. The film ended its first week with ₹8.43 crore.
Also, Shahid Kapoor's "R... Rajkumar" is still running in single screens in Maharashtra and CP Berar.
