The box office run of Aamir's film "PK" might stop as it finished its four weeks run. With its stunning box office performance, "PK" has changed the box office prospects.
Rajkumar Hirani's film proved that a film with good content could do wonders at the box office. The film talks about the superstition and fraud that happens in India in the name of God.

From domestic theatrical run the film minted ₹333. 81 crore in four weeks. It shattered several box office records in India and simultaneously created a ₹300 crore revenue club.
