Aamir Khan's PK has managed to show growth in the Box Office collection over the second and third day but still it has not been able to beat either Happy New Year or Dhoom 3's first weekend collection.
The film had grossed only Rs 26.63 crores on the opening day, which is very less in comparison to the estimated collections by the trade experts. With advance booking available a week before and having released in over 5000 odd screens in India and 800 odd screens overseas, PK was really expected to cross Dhoom 3 and Happy New Year's opening day collection record.
The least the trade experts predicted was that it will gross Rs 30 crores, but PK failed to do that as well. On day 2, Saturday the film did a lot better, the collections picked up as the day progressed, thanks to the houseful shows during noon, evening and night.
On Saturday, PK grossed Rs 30.34 crores, this brought the two days total box office collection to Rs 56.97. On Sunday too the film did well in theatres, it being the weekend off proved beneficial and increased the collections as well.
According to trade experts the film is said to have grossed Rs 38.24 crores approximately on day three. In that case, the film's total first weekend box office collection would approximately be Rs 95.21 crores, a lot lesser than the 100 crores.
The film needed Rs 45 crores in order to cross the 100 crore mark which was highly unlikely. The film has crossed Kick's weekend collection which stands at Rs 83 crore but it has not beaten Happy New Year and Dhoom 3's record, both of which managed to cross 100 crore mark.
