Aamir Khan's latest outing "PK" has continued its successful run in the second week. On its 13th day, the film has collected ₹8.5 crore at the Indian box office, taking its 13 day total to ₹264.82 crore.
With no big releases from Bollywood in its second week, "PK" continued to keep the bells ringing at the cash counters on its second Friday. When compared to its opening day business, the movie witnessed around 40% drop in its collection on its eighth day. Though it did superb collection, the film failed to cross the mark of ₹200 crore.
"PK" had a big leap on its second Saturday and Sunday. In its second weekend, the movie collected ₹53.49 crore at the Indian box office, taking its 10-day domestic total to ₹236.56 crore. Its second weekend collection is the biggest number ever collected by any other Bollywood movie in the past.
On its second Monday, the Rajkumar Hirani-directed movie showed around 30% drop when compared to its business on its second Friday. But this amount was much bigger than the first Monday collection of many big-ticket Bollywood movies released in 2014.
"PK" maintained rock-steady on the following days too. On the weekdays, the film has raked in Rs 27.69 crore at the Indian box office and its 13-day domestic total stands at ₹264.27 crore. With one day left to conclude its second week in theatres, the movie is expected to surpass the mark of ₹270 crore mark in 14 days.
Made on a whopping budget of ₹100 crore, "PK" has already recovered its production cost and also gained a huge amount of profit share to both its producers as well as distributors across the country.
The movie has already beaten the life-time collection records of Shah Rukh Khan's "Chennai Express", Salman Khan's "Kick" and Hrithik Roshan's "Krrish 3". The film has become the highest grosser of 2014 and the second all time highest grosser in the domestic market.
In its third week, "PK" is expected to top the list of all time highest grosser Bollywood movies, beating the record of "Dhoom 3", which is currently holding this position with its life-time collection ₹264.82 crore.
