New releases of the week, Mumbai Can Dance Saala and Take It Easy, could not even survive their first weekend and were disasters on the day of their releases. Meanwhile, PK continued to rule for it’s third week straight. In the process, it managed to cross the 320 crore mark, which is humungous by all standards. The film continued to fare strongly EVEN on weekdays with more than 3 crores coming in on each of the days – something which hasn’t been seen for a very long time.
While the Aamir Khan starrer has pretty much seen an uninterrupted run for three weeks now, it would certainly face a massive challenge from Tevar! Audiences would now have a choice to make between both films and this could definitely mean tables may turn for PK – or will they?
Still, the fact remains that Rajkumar Hirani has established his supremacy all over again as a director of repute who has a fan following of his own. He is also one of the rare filmmakers to have enjoyed four successes in a row, something that was achieved last by Indra Kumar more than two decades ago when he scored with Dil, Beta, Raja and Ishq. If Hirani manages to score a biggie with his fifth release, he could even make history!
