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.
