Aamir Khan's "PK" has opened well at the Indian box office, with the film raking in more than ₹50 crore in two days. It is likely to end the opening weekend by minting around ₹90 crore in India.
The film is expected to cross the ₹100-crore club by Monday (22 December) and beat "Kick," which achieved the feat in five days.
While the Aamir starrer will easily surpass ₹100 crore, the question will now be whether it enters the ₹200-crore club. So far, six Bollywood films have entered the ₹200-crore club, including Aamir's "Dhoom 3." All eyes will be focused on "PK" to find out if it crosses the ₹200-crore mark in India box office collections.
Trade experts seem confident that the film will enter the ₹200-crore club, but it needs to be seen if the Aamir starrer will be able to breach the mark by this year end. If it does, "PK" will beat "Chennai Express," which achieved the feat in 15 days.
There are possibilities that the comedy drama film might even beat "Kick," "Krrish 3" and "Dhoom 3," which minted over ₹200 crore in 11, 10 and nine days respectively.
Ajay Devgn starrer "Action Jackson" has failed to pick up in its second week and its performance has remained dull at the box office. The film minted ₹2.65 crore in four days (15-18 December) and its two-week collections amout to ₹55.25 crore, reported Koimoi.
"Action Jackson" carried big buzz prior to its release, but its performance has dipped after the first day as a result of average reviews. The Devgn starrer was doing poorly in multiplexes, though its performance in single screens was decent. With the release of Aamir Khan's "PK," "Action Jackson" is likely to witness further drop in collections and might end its business soon.
