An Aamir Khan movie has raised the bar again at the box office. His latest movie "PK" has emerged as the all time highest grossing movie worldwide and now aiming to create the ₹600-crore mark.
"PK" was released to average opening on 19 December and got positive reviews. But in the next two days it performed well to take its total tally to ₹90 crores in the first weekend. It was believed that this movie would not break many records considering its above average performance at collection centres.
But what had many ignored was the fact that "PK" was not another movie, which could make stunning business in the opening weekend and completely dip in the following days. The remarkable journey of the film's success is its consistency. As a result, it earned ₹183.09 by the end of its first week.
As a result, it registered the highest business for a Bollywood film in the year and beat Hrithik Roshan's "Krissh 3" (₹166.52), Salman Khan's "Kick"( ₹164.09) and "Happy New Year" (₹157.57 crores). Since then, it has continued to break all the records and now it has become the highest grossing movie worldwide.
"PK", on its 15th day, beat "Dhoom 3" to become the highest collection (Nett) made movie at domestic box office by earning ₹285.56 crore, thereby beating "Dhoom 3" (₹284.27 crore) record. It also became the biggest hit worldwide by earning ₹544 crores to beat "Dhoom 3" again which had collected ₹542 crores.
The movie is expected to cross the ₹550-crore mark on Saturday (03 January) and its next big feat will be the ₹600-crore mark. Looking at the current performance, it appears like "PK" will reach this mile with ease.
It means that Aamir Khan, who created ₹100-crore club with "Ghajini", could possibly inaugurate the ₹600-crore club in just a few days with his blockbuster "PK".
