Prem Ratan Dhan Payo has managed to gain an entry in the history books. The film now finds itself in the top 10 biggest Bollywood grossers of all times. The film, after collecting 20.4 crore more in its second weekend (Friday – 5.5 crore, Saturday – 6.7 crore, Sunday – 8.2 crore). has now netted 193.22 crore at the Box Office. With this, the Sooraj Barjatya film is now at the number 9 position.
This is how the list looks like:
PK – 338 crore
Bajrangi Bhaijaan – 321 crore
Dhoom 3 – 284 crore
Kick – 232 crore
Chennai Express – 227 crore
Happy New Year – 205 crore
3 Idiots – 202 crore
Ek Tha Tiger – 199 crore
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo – 193.22 crore (still running)
Bang Bang – 181 crore
Going by the trend, it is expected that by the end of its lifetime, the film should find itself at the number 6 spot while surpassing Happy New Year‘s collections. However, Chennai Express‘ record would stay intact. While the film has stayed quite consistent in Gujarat, the excellent run there has been diluted by just good (which could have been better) performance in Delhi-Punjab zone.
Meanwhile, for Salman Khan this is a great run again as he now has four of his films in the top 10 list of all times. Aamir Khan follows with three films, Shah Rukh Khan with two and Hrithik Roshan has one against his name as well.
New release of the week, X: Past Is Present, didn’t find any takers even though it get a fair share of screens in select multiplexes.
Note: All collections as per production and distribution sources.
