The movie, directed by Rajkumar Hirani and also featuring Anushka Sharma, Sushant Singh Rajput, Boman Irani and Sanjay Dutt, has been setting the box office on fire by breaking all kinds of records since its release on December 19. Dogged by protests from right-wing Hindu organisations for showing alleged disrespect to Hindu religion, the box office collections of ‘PK’ have broken the ‘formerly unreachable’ ‘Dhoom 3’ records to become the biggest grosser in Bollywood.

Director Rajkumar Hirani, while breaking the news, 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,” Rajkumar Hirani had said in a statement after ‘PK’ dethroned ‘Dhoom 3’ to become the top grossing movie of all time.

Here’s what trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted regarding ‘PK’ box office collections on Saturday:

Adarsh also tweeted termed the ‘PK’ as all time blockbuser:

The manner in which ‘PK’ movie has kept up its momentum in  building up box office collections burnishes the Aamir Khan aura further and gives greater credence to the trend of his movies packing great stamina for the long run – his movies may start a little slow, but as the days turn into weeks, they show no signs of slacking in pulling in the crowds into theatres.

                i do not see any negativity about the message from this movie. Infact, the movie is about how corrupt our religion has become. We do not seek God the way we are suppose to, we started believing blindly on whatever fake baba's and so called godmen. We need to go back to the root of our religion. It is a good movie, with good message, the acting was superb. better than all SRK movies. Indian cinema is becoming more reasonable. Hats of to PK!

                  Agar dhongi babas Bharat ke bahumat hai, toh aisa bahumat na guzara hai hum e.. Yeh desh sirf aap jaise fundamantalist hindus ke liye nahin hai sirf.. Yeh desh mere jaise sahanshil aur liberal hindus ke liye bhi hai... Aap ko Hindus ka representative kisne bana diya...

                    Dear Ajit, I guess 80 percent of the potion of India is Hindus, so the movie earn 300cr plus is the result due to most of the Hindus have watched the movie.
