collections in India, beating the past record of Rs 56 crore set once again by the Aamir Khan-starrer, 3 Idiots. In the third weekend, the film earned Rs 12.91 crore in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, thus taking the total to Rs 270 crore net, making it the highest grossing film in the history of Indian Cinema.
The third installment in the Dhoom series ha released in maximum number of screens for any Hindi film till date, be it in India or abroad.
“What Dhoom 3 has done so far is unheard of. It is the fastest film to reach Rs 100 crore and was even faster to enter the Rs 200 crore club. Mind you, Aamir gave the industry’s first Rs 100 crore film in 'Ghajini', first Rs 200 crore in '3 Idiots' and 'Dhoom 3' has a very bright chance to earn Rs 300 crore," points out trade analyst Komal Nahata.
Casting Aamir Khan, the low-key promotions, the sizzling Katrina Kaif effect and the coming together of Jai (Abhishek Bachchan) and Ali (Uday Chopra) made Dhoom 3 one of the most talked about films, thus leading to immense anticipation that finally saw huge box office collections filter into the coffers.
