Salman Khan's "Kick" has almost finished its theatrical run in India and it is unlikely that the film will beat "Dhoom 3" and "Krrish 3" box office collection.
"Kick" three weeks' total stands at ₹229.65 crore and in fourth week the business of the film affected drastically. Despite Independence Day on Friday "Kick" minted only ₹53 lakh from theatres in India.

"Kick" successfully broke "Chennai Express" record by third week and became the third highest grosser.
"Chennai Express took four years to break the record held by 3 Idiots, but now, Hindi film box-office records are being broken with alarming regularity," a trade source told The Times of India.
But it is unlikely that "Kick" will beat Hrithik Roshan's "Krrish 3" and Aamir Khan's "Dhoom 3" record as their total is too high for the film to achieve.
"Krrish 3" is the second grosser Bollywood film with more than ₹240 crore, while "Dhoom 3" is the highest grosser film with ₹287 crore.
"Kick" total is ₹229 crore and to beat "Krrish 3" also it requires more than ₹10 crore. But looking at the fourth week collection it is unlikely for the film to earn even ₹5 crore.
The collection of the film dropped because of the release of new film "Singham Returns". The screen count of the film declined from more than 4,000 screens in week one to 300 screens in week four.
And with fewer number of screens, the film is expected to take its overall lifetime total to ₹232 crore, if it earns decent amount during weekdays.
Aamir's "3 Idiots" will remain at the no.1 slot, while "Krrish 3" at no. 2 followed by "Kick" at third in the box-office chart list.
