PK and Dhoom 3
Box Office Collection: Aamir's 'PK' Beats 'Dhoom 3' in 15 Days; Becomes Highest Grossing Bollywood Filmfacebook

Controversies related to "objectionable content" in the film haven't really affected the box office collection of Aamir Khan starrer "PK".

The film's earnings on second Tuesday remained rock steady at collection centers. On its second Tuesday the film minted ₹9.11 crore, which is slightly lesser than Monday's figure.

"PK" or "Peekay" 12 days domestic box office income has now surpassed the ₹250 crore mark in India.

The film in its first week minted over ₹183 crore, from second weekend it minted more than ₹53 crore, on second Monday it raked in ₹10.08 crore and on Tuesday it raked in ₹9.11 crore. The film's total now stands at ₹255.77 crore, according to Bollywood Hungama.

The film, which shattered several records, will soon become the highest grossing Bollywood film ever, if it maintains the same pace at collection centers.

"Dhoom 3" holds the record of being the highest grossing Bollywood movie worldwide. But with the ongoing trend, it looks like "PK" will soon break that record as well.

Rajkumar Hirani's directorial film requires only ₹28.4 crore to secure the top position. With no big movies releasing this week, the film is expected to continue its marvelous run at the box office and become the highest grosser by third weekend.

Meanwhile, the collection of the film was expected to go down due to the controversies. Right-wing activists have been protesting across India to stop the screening of the film due to its alleged anti-Hindu content.

Members of VHP and Bajrang Dal have vandalised theaters in Mumbai, Ahmadabad, Delhi, Hyderabad and other places.

However, the makers of the film received support from film fraternity and young India.

"It is unfortunate that people are staging protests. The scenes and dialogues are not against god. As a Hindu myself, I didn't find anything insulting," film enthusiast Ayonav Bagchi, 33, told IANS.

There are some who even demanded a tax free status for the film across the country.
