It looks like that Aamir Khan-starrer Dhoom: 3 is going to break all the previous box office records this year. This movie has already earned Rs 107.61 crores and made a record of highest opening collection for this year beating Shah Rukh Khan's Chennai Express which grossed Rs 100.35 crores.
According to official statement, Dhoom: 3, which was released on 20 December 2013 in about 4000 theatres, earned Rs 36.22 crore on the first day followed by Rs 33.36 crore on Saturday and 38.09 on Sunday.
Trade experts predict that this movie will cross Rs.250 crore by the end of this week thanks to Christmas and New Year holidays. Ahead of the holidays, demand for tickets has been increased. Another important reason of doing well in week days is that it is not facing any big competition at the box office until the release of Dedh Ishqiya on January 10, next year.
Ahead of Christmas, Spice Cinemas Delhi has booked 4,000 tickets, which accounts for 50 percent of their total seating capacity, said Punit Sahay, senior manager programming, Spice Cinemas. According to Gautam Dutta, COO, PVR Cinemas, their pre-booking status for the week is worth Rs.3.5 crore.
Along with Hindi version, Dhoom: 3 is dubbed in Tamil and Telugu language and is released in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh respectively. The interesting thing is that this movie is getting good response from the northern part of India also. In Chennai more than 50 percent tickets are sold out for the next three days at major multiplexes.
Now, Bollywood movie lovers are excitedly waiting to see if Dhoom: 3 can break all the previous record or not.
