Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan has done it again! Mr Perfectionist has beaten Shah Rukh Khan with his latest release ‘Dhoom: 3’ entering the exclusive Rs. 100 crore club within three days of its release. Earlier SRK’s Chennai Express was the fastest to enter the Rs 100 crore club in four days of its release.
Internationally, in the Top 5 territories, Dhoom:3 has made:
USA /Canada US $ 3,435,000 (Highest opening ever – beating the previous 4 day record by $1 million)
UAE / GCC US $ 2,801,000 (The film did not release on Thursday as is the norm in the Middle East, but still managed to beat YRF’s own previous record by $500,000)
UK US $ 1,451,000 (Highest non festival/holiday opening ever on a 3 day weekend)
Australia US $ 765,360 (Highest opening ever for any film)
Pakistan US $ 630,500 (Highest opening ever for any film)
Dhoom:3 managed a Dhoombastic screen average in every country setting a new benchmark globally.
Internationally Dhoom:3 cleared $10.17 million (Rs.61 Cr) on the opening weekend making it the biggest opening weekend ever for any Bollywood film making the total Worldwide BO $28.11 million (Rs.168.63 Cr).
With other international territories like Morocco, Maldives, Rwanda, Lebanon, Egypt, Germany, Peru, Romania, Japan, Russia, CIS, Turkey opening up in the coming days plus others to follow.
Dhoom:3 is unstoppable and on course to add chapters after chapters in its Box Office history.
YRF’s decision of not releasing the film with pre-views on Thursday to keep the plot under wraps and open on the same day worldwide, strategically worked at the Box Office.
It’s only a matter of time for Dhoom :3 to clear the 200 crore hurdle with no major releases this week and its set to edge out B-town all time record holders Chennai Express and Krrish 3.. lets see where at what figure Dhoom :3 ends up finally in India and worldwide.
