    As protests against the film continued, the producers of Aamir Khan-starrer PK today said the film has broken Dhoom 3 record to become the biggest earner in Bollywood by collecting Rs 278.52 crores since its release on December 19.

    The film has faced criticism by right-wing organisations who said the Rajkumar Hirani-directed film disrespects Hindu religion, an allegation rejected by its makers.

    Hirani, 52, said the film's word-of-mouth performance has been overwhelming. "I had never in my wildest dreams thought this film will cross these numbers. It reinforces faith that content is king. We can continue making films we believe in. The messages I get are overwhelming. People are watching the film over and over again. It's humbling," the director said in a statement.

    PK with its Rs 278.52 crores at the box office is the second film by both Aamir and Hirani after 3 Idiots (Rs 202 crores) to be a part of the highest earning films' club.

    Aamir-starrer Dhoom 3 is second biggest earner with Rs 271.82 crores followed by Salman Khan starrer Kick (Rs 244 crores) and Shah Rukh Khan's Chennai Express (Rs 228 crores). The film has done well in overseas markets as well by contributing Rs 124 crores at the box office.
