"Kick" will be Salman Khan's first film to enter into the ₹200 crore club in India alone. The elite club has films of other popular bollywood stars including Shah Rukh Khan ("Chennai Express"), Hrithik Roshan ("Krrish 3") and Aamir Khan ("Dhoom 3" and "3 Idiots").

The film is also doing good business in foreign markets. It has surpassed the ₹50-crore mark at the overseas box office.

The Salman Khan starrer has already been declared a blockbuster. The film is expected to fare well until Friday (8 August) when Akshay Kumar-Tamannaah Bhatia's "Entertainment" hits the screens. The release of the slapstick comedy film might reduce the screen count for "Kick." It will be interesting to see how these films perform when they clash at the box office.
