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. The third installment in the Dhoom series had already smashed the opening day, opening weekend and opening week collection records in India, which were set by Shah Rukh Khan's 'Chennai Express' and Hrithik Roshan's 'Krrish 3'.
The Yash Raj Films produced Dhoom 3 collected Rs 200 crore worldwide in its first weekend, while Salman Khan-starrer Dabangg 2, released a year ago, was the first film to hit Rs 100 crore mark in the first weekend, showing how fast the industry has been growing in less than a year.
Previously only 3 Idiots and Ek Tha Tiger had managed to join the Rs 300 crore club. Now, it is very likely that Dhoom 3 will cross the Rs 400-crore mark.
'Dhoom 3' has broken box office collections records in Pakistan too in the first week of its release. The movie has collected $1,171,800 (Rs 7.25 crore) becoming the biggest opener ever in that country.
