Dhoom 3 continued its record run at the box office and is likely to hold up the momentum due to the year-end holidays.
The Aamir Khan action thriller pulled in an estimated Rs 271.66 crore in the first six days of its release.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh in a tweet said, "Here's Fri to Wed total of Dhoom3: India Rs 174.97 cr + Overseas Rs 96.69 cr [$15.57 million]. Worldwide total: Rs 271.66 cr. BLOCKBUSTER!"
Strong overseas collection has been a big factor in Dhoom 3's record performance at the box office. Taran Adarsh sees Dhoom 3 to soon overtake 3 Idiots as the biggest grosser in the USA-Canada markets.
"3Idiots is the HIGHEST GROSSER in USA-Canada [$ 6.5 million]. Dhoom3 is approx $ 5 million till Wed. Should overtake #3Idiots soon!" he tweeted.
Dhoom 3 helped Bollywood cap a very good year at a time when the overall economy continues to be stuck in a low gear.
Pramod Arora, president & CEO of PVR, is hopeful that the third installment of the Dhoom franchise would break many records.
PVR expects Dhoom 3 to boost its third quarter numbers. "Undoubtedly Dhoom 3 has done an unprecedented set of numbers, which we believe is really going to help the numbers in this quarter. There haven't been very many movies which have done numbers in this quarter," he said.
