‘Dhoom 3’, starring Aamir Katrina Kaif and Abhishek Bachchan, has already smashed the opening day and opening weekend collection records in India, which were set by Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Chennai Express’ and Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Krrish 3’. ‘Krrish 3’ is the highest grosser of 2013 so far, collecting Rs 244.47 crore since its release. The film is now set to challenge the four-year-old record held by the Aamir Khan’s previous all-time blockbuster film ‘3 Idiots’ that grossed Rs 56 crore in its second week. Chennai Express, the highest-ever domestic grosser at Rs 208 crore, collected around Rs 39 crore in its second week.
Looking at Dhoom 3’s collection spree, the film is likely to become the highest ever grosser of all time domestically by surpassing records of Chennai Express and 3 Idiots (Rs 204 crore).
The Yash Raj Films produced Dhoom 3 has collected Rs 200 crore worldwide in its first weekend, while Salman Khan-starrer Dabangg 2, released a year ago, was the first film to hit Rs 100 crore mark in the first weekend, showing how fast the industry has been growing in less than a year.
