"PK" dominated the box office in its third week even though there were two new releases. "PK" starring Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma ended the three weeks run with ₹320 crore box office income.
Two films "Mumbai Can Dance Saala" and "Take It Easy" were declared disasters within three days of their releases, making way for "PK" to rule the box office.
"PK" recorded the highest third week collection by earning ₹41.61 crore. After three weeks, "PK" made an income of more than ₹320 crore from Indian markets.
In its first week "PK" minted ₹183.09 crore, in second week it minted ₹95.78 crore and in third week it fared in ₹41.61 crore, according to Bollywood Hungama.
The film had a nonstop run in India and globally for three weeks, but it looks like the uninterrupted run will come to an end after the release of Arjun Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha starrer "Tevar".
Trade analysts are expecting "PK" to cross ₹350 crore mark in India, but since "Tevar" has opened on a good note it might be difficult for Aamir's film to achieve the target.
Meanwhile, Rajkumar Hirani has made a grand comeback with his latest film "PK". His last directorial film "3 Idiots", which received critical appreciation, remained on top for three years and just it looks like that "PK" will remain on top until the release of his next film.
The target his film has set at the box office is too high and it remains to be seen which movie would breach the brand new ₹300 crore mark.
Shah Rukh Khan supports Aamir over "PK" controversies
Aamir's film landed in controversy after several religious organisations protested saying that it features anti-Hindu content. However the film industry, including Salman Khan, supported Aamir and the makers.
And recently Shah Rukh Khan supporting the film said that it should not be questioned once the censor board clears the film.
"When a film has already been censored, it should not be questioned at all. Indian films pass through a rigorous censor and once that's done, it's officially passed. But there will always be people who will have some problem or the other but they should not take it into the system where the whole idea of censorship becomes totally banal," SRK said, according to DNA.
