Aamir Khan-Anushka Sharma starrer "PK" has managed a decent run even in its third week at the Indian box office. After recording the highest 18th day collection ever, the film's collections witnessed drop on the 19th day.
"PK" has minted ₹4 crore on its 19th day (third Tuesday) taking its 19-day total to ₹313.50 crore, reported Koimoi. The film continues to hold on to a good number of screens and bring in more crowds to theatres. Looking at its performance, one can expect the film to surpass the ₹350-crore mark in India. It will be interesting to see if the Aamir-starrer manages to cross the ₹350-core mark or ends up scoring below that in its lifetime collections at the domestic box office.
"PK" is also performing well in overseas markets. The film has minted $23.5 million so far and has emerged as the third highest grossing Bollywood film of all time at the overseas box office.
The top two spots is taken by Aamir's "Dhoom 3" and "3 Idiots," which had raked in $28 million and $26 million, respectively. It needs to be seen if the Rajkumar Hirani directorial will be able to surpass "Dhoom 3" collections and emerge as the highest grosser at the foreign box office.
Interestingly, "PK" has grossed over ₹580 crore (India and overseas combined) at the worldwide box office. The film has surpassed "Dhoom 3" collections (₹542 crore) and has emerged as the highest-grossing Bollywood film of all time at the Indian as well as worldwide box office.
The satirical drama has remained undisturbed by controversies and protests over its content. It has continued to perform very well and is expected to complete the third week on a good note. The film is also likely to do decent business even in its fourth week, though it might witness some drop in collections due to the release of Arjun Kapoor-Sonakshi Sinha's "Tevar."
