Aamir Khan's PK showed a lot of improvement on Sunday and managed to retain it over the first weekday i.e Monday as well. The film had an average opening at the Box Office but it picked up over the last four days.
The film released in 5200 screens in India and 800 abroad, having obtained 6000 screens to release their movie, PK was expected to do a lot better but it grossed just Rs 26.63 crores on day 1.
It showed improvement on Saturday by grossing Rs 30.34 crores but the major improvement in Box Office collection was shown on Sunday when the collections increased and PK grossed a whopping Rs 38.24 crores.
Bringing the total Box Office collection over the weekend to Rs 95.21, just a tad less than Rs 100 crores. Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer PK failed to make it to the 100 crore club by a mark of Rs 5 crores. Had the film got a better opening, it would have easily grossed Rs 100 crores.
Nevertheless, PK had a good inning on Monday too. Considering it was weekday, the film was expected to drop by 50% but thanks to the good reviews and word of mouth promotions, the collections just dropped by 25-30%.
According to tproducer figures the film has minted over Rs 21.22 crores, bringing the total four days Box Office collection to Rs 116.63 crores. The Monday business is similar to that of Dhoom 3 and much better than how Shahrukh's Happy New Year had fared.
PK has definitely had a good start to the first week and is in fact the second highest grossing first weekend collections of 2014, one spot behind Happy New Year.
Another proud factor for director Rajkumar Hirani is that, in just three days PK has reached number 9 spot on Top 10 Bollywood Movies of 2014.

A 'numerologist' predicted on a radio station that #PK would not do well at BO. His prediction and his empirical science stand debunked.
Some idiot has filed an FIR against @aamir_khan and @RajkumarHirani for hurting religious sentiments in #PK shockingly stupid n ridiculous!
Will everyone in the government please do themselves a favour and watch #PK? Might help them with some healthy perspective. #WrongNumber
