Salman Khan's film "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" (PRDP) has shattered the first week box office collection of his 2014 release.
With its seven-day box office collection, "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" has broken the records of the 2014 blockbuster movie "Kick" and Shah Rukh Khan's "Chennai Express".
"Kick" and Shah Rukh's "Chennai Express" earned Rs 164.09 crore and Rs 156.7 crore, respectively, in the first week.
And now, the records of both the films has been broken by "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo", which earned Rs 165.45 crore.
Here is the break-up of "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo", "Kick" and "Chennai Express":
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo: Thursday Rs 40.35 crore, Friday Rs 31.05 crore, Saturday Rs 30.07 crore, Sunday Rs 28.30 crore, Monday Rs 13.62 crore, Tuesday Rs 12.04 crore and Wednesday Rs 10.02 crore.

However, "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" will not beat the first week records of "Bajrangi Bhaijaan".
"#PremRatanDhanPayo crosses *Week 1* biz of #Kick - ₹ 164.09 cr. But will remain lower than #BajrangiBhaijaan *Week 1* biz - ₹ 184.62 cr," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
Meanwhile, "PRDP" has touched Rs 200 crore mark at the worldwide box office and now, it is all set to enter the double century club at the domestic box office.
With "PRDP" crossing the Rs 200 crore mark, director Sooraj Barjatya and Sonam Kapoor will make it to the double century club. On the other hand, this will be Salman's third film to earn over Rs 200 crore nett income.
Directed by Barjatya, the film features Salman and Sonam in lead roles, while Neil Nitin Mukesh, Anupam Kher, Armaan Kohli, Swara Bhaskar and Deepak Dobriyal are the supporting casts.
