PK has become the highest worldwide Bollywood grosser raking in over INR600 crore. It’s a win-win for Aamir Khan as he beats the record for his other film Dhoom 3 which had earned slightly over INR540 crore.
Talking to Dawn, Marketing Manager from Distributor Club (PVT) Ltd Hassaan Rizvi says: “PK has made over Rs18 crore in Pakistan and continues to attract movie-goers. It will be in cinemas until the end of January so I’m sure it will make a lot more.”
He adds: “The movie thrives because it entails a strong message, and of course because of Aamir Khan and Rajkumar Hirani.”
PK‘s box office revenue in Pakistan is inching close to beating Waar’s record of Rs22 crore (statistics provided by Saad Baig of Footprint (Pvt) Ltd). By Jan 6, PK had made almost Rs15 crore and has managed to cross Rs18 crore in a matter of four days. It is likely that the movie will keep the momentum going and Aamir Khan’s depiction of a quirky alien addressing deep rooted social issues will keep the house full.
Whether PK will break the record for Dhoom 3, which did colossal business in Pakistan making over Rs24.5 crore, is still up in the air. PK has three weeks left in cinemas to do so.
