Bollywood movie Mahabharat released in theatres this Friday, but it did not affect the collection of Aditya Chopra's latest production Dhoom 3. Having rocked the viewers in the first week, the action thriller featuring Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif in negative roles, has once again kept the bells ringing at the Indian Box Office in the second weekend. In just 10 days, the film has smashed the life-time business of Ek Tha Tiger and 3 Idiots. It has become the third all time highest grosser Hindi flick.
When compared to its opening day collection, Dhoom 3 witnessed more than 65% drop in its business on its second Friday. The movie, which became first choice for many film goers, showed improvements in its business on Saturday and Sunday. It has collected Rs 35.14 crores nett at the Indian Box Office in the second weekend. Its breakup is Rs 10.10 cr on Fri, Rs 12.04 cr on Sat and Rs 13 cr on Sun.
Dhoom 3 has collected a total of Rs 224.12 crores nett at the Indian Box Office in 10 days. Ek Tha Tiger and 3 Idiots had collected Rs 199.50 crores and 202 crores nett respectively in the domestic market in their life time. Now, the Vijaya Krishna Ancharya-directed movie has smashed both these records in nine days.
But Dhoom 3 has just missed to beat the life time collection record of Chennai Express, which had raked in Rs 227 croress nett. Trade experts predict that the Aamir Khan starrer will definitely beat this record on its 11th day and become the second all-time highest grosser. By the end of second week, the film is also expected to top the list by beating Krrish 3, which has collected Rs 244.5 crores nett at the Indian Box Office in its life time.
