Kabir Khan's directorial film "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" has shattered the first week business of "Kick", starring Salman Khan. And now "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" is aiming to beat the first week box office collection records "Dhoom 3" and "PK".
"Dhoom 3" and "PK" hold the record of highest opening week box office collection, respectively. Overall, "Dhoom 3" has the highest first week income (Rs 188.9 crore) and "PK" has the second highest first week earnings with Rs 183.09 crore.
"Bajrangi Bhaijaan" accumulated Rs 164.09 crore in just six days from domestic box office. Salman starrer "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" now requires more Rs 16 crore to beat "PK" records and Rs 19 crore to beat "Dhoom 3" record.
The film might break the records of "PK" in India, as it requires only Rs 16 crore, but it is unlikely that it will beat "Dhoom 3" in the first week.
Meanwhile, "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" is Salman's highest first week grosser after beating the records of "Kick". If it continues its victory march in the second week also, it will soon become Salman's highest grosser film.
"Baahubali - the Beginning" had collected R 185.69 crore from worlwide box office. Salman's film might even break the worldwid box office collection record of "Baahubali" with it's domestic income.
Worldwide box office
"Bajrangi Bhaijaan" also starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and child actress Harshaali Malhotra is creating waves at the overseas box office as well. In just five days, the film has earned $ 10.85 million (Rs 69.05 crore) from international market.
The worldwide box office collection of "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" now stands at Rs 238.12 crore. "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" will soon cross Rs 250 crore mark at the worldwide box office.
