Aamir Khan’s Dhoom:3 races ahead of Chennai Express, rakes in over Rs 250 crore

The third installment of Dhoom franchise has created hungama at the box office

Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra starrer Dhoom:3 is in its second week and still going steady at box office. Besides witnessing an earth shattering opening, the film has surpassed the BO collection of Shahrukh Khan’s Chennai Express within no time. Dhoom:3 has grossed Rs 250 crore in India. Trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted, “Yes, Dhoom:3 has crossed Rs 250 cr nett in India. Dhoom:3 [Week 2]: Hindi – 61.81 cr, Tamil & Telugu – 1.91 cr. Total: Hindi – 240.78 cr, Tamil & Telugu – 11.92 cr. Grand total: – 252.70 cr.”

That’s not all! The Aamir Khan film is having a dream run at the international box office as well. “Dhoom:3 *Overseas total* till Wednesday: $ 23.01 million [₹ 143.42 cr]. All Time Blockbuster” posted Adarsh. If Dhoom:3 continues to get cash registers ringing, we won’t be surprised if director Vijay Krishna Acharya’s film enters the coveted Rs 300 crore club. Since the only big release is Salman Khan’s Jai Ho which will hit the theatres on 24 January, wethinks Dhoom:3 has good chances of breaking and making few more records before Sallu’s film releases.
