Aamir Khan starrer Dhoom 3 created the record of managing to enter the 100 crore club in just three days. Now this was expected and finally the Box Office figures have also proved it. Also the fact that a popular ticket-booking websites crashed, we should have seen this coming.
Dhoom 3, after breaking the opening-day collection record at the domestic Box Office, has collected about Rs 1070 million (107 crore) nett approximately in just three days.
Day 1 (Friday 20, 2013): Dhoom 3 (Hindi version) has collected in the range of Rs 334.2 million (33.4 crore) nett approximately. Collections of the regional versions (Tamil and Telugu) of Dhoom 3 are in the range of Rs 28 million (2.8 crore) nett approximately. If this is added to the Hindi version collection, the total earnings of Dhoom 3 (Hindi, Tamil, Telugu) are in the range of Rs 362.2 million (36.22 crore) nett approximately.
Day 2 (Saturday 21, 2013): Dhoom 3 has collected in the range of Rs 333.6 million (Rs. 33.36 crore) nett approximately which includes the regional versions as well making it to the grand total of Rs 695.8 million (Rs. 69.58 crore) nett.
Day 3 (Sunday 22, 2013): Dhoom 3 (Hindi version) has collected in the range of Rs 360.499 million (Rs. 36.05 crore) nett approximately which includes the regional versions as well making it to the grand total in the range of Rs 1070 million (Rs. 107 crore) nett approximately.
This is something that the third installment of Yash Raj Films popular Dhoom 3 has achieved only in its first three days leaving behind the first week collections of films like Chennai Express and Krrish 3.
Dhoom 3 stars Aamir Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra and Katrina Kaif and has been released in about 4,000 screens in India.
The stupendous success of Dhoom 3, despite its reviews is attributed to three major facts. One its time of release, two the Yash Raj banner and last but not the least the sheer power of Aamir Khan. Yes, the story has a lot of loopholes, there it has a lot of melodrama but then it also has Aamir Khan in a double role plus a story brand association.
All said and done, Dhoom 3 has a long way to go as it has a clean on month run at the Box Office because the next major film that would be releasing would be Salman Khan’s Jai Ho on January 24, 2014.
