Aamir Khan now has three of his films in the list of Top-6 All Time Highest grossers. The film collected 22.72 crore more yesterday and its total currently stands at 239.01 crore. He is now pretty much competing with himself when it comes to the biggest Box Office successes of all time as his PK sits at the top while Dhoom: 3 is the next in line. This is how the biggies currently stand:
PK – 339.50 crore
Bajrangi Bhaijaan – 320.24 crore
Sultan – 300.45 crore
Dhoom: 3 – 280.25 crore
Dangal – 239.01 crore
Kick – 233 crore
Chennai Express – 226.70 crore
In the process, the Aamir Khan starrer has now gone past the lifetime collections of Salman Khan’s Kick and Shahrukh Khan’s Chennai Express in 9 days flat.
There is just no stopping the film and what makes it further special is the fact that it is rooted in ‘desi’ setting. As a matter of fact that’s a common element in all films in the list of top grossers, barring Dhoom: 3. That was the only film with a Hollywood set up to it. Otherwise be it PK [religion], Bajrangi Bhaijaan [Hindu-Muslim sentiments], Sultan [sports-meets-romance set up in North India] or Dangal [sports-meets-women empowerment set up in north India], each of these films
has a strong Indian element going for it which has made it a pan-India success.
