"After surpassing #3Idiots, #Kick now overtakes #ChennaiExpress biz in India. #Kick total till Wed: ₹ 228.08 cr nett. ALL TIME BLOCKBUSTER," Adarsh added.

"Singham Returns" to Affect "Kick"

"Kick" will finish its third week run at the domestic box office on Thursday and will begin the fourth week on the Independence Day. However, on the same day, Ajay Devgn's "Singham Returns" will hit the screens with a huge screen count.

The screen count of "Kick" declined after the release of "Entertainment" and it will decline further once "Singham Returns" hits the screen, which will affect the business of the Salman starrer.
