Dhoom 3 races ahead with more box-office records broken

Dhoom 3 continued its record run at the box office, creating more benchmarks for Bollywood. The Aamir Khan-starrer action thriller pulled in a record Rs 202.50 crore in just four days of its release, according to estimates.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh in a tweet said, "So here's Fri to Mon total of Dhoom3... India Rs 129.32 cr + Overseas Rs 73.17 cr. Worldwide total: Rs 202.49 cr. MIND-BOGGLING!"

Dhoom 3's record collection has enthused multiplex owners. Pramod Arora, president & CEO of PVR, said, "Movies like Dhoom 3, if we have even 2 or 3 such movies in a year it can really turn fortunes of multiplex owners across the country."

Analysts estimate Dhoom 3 to gross over Rs 300 crore at the box office. Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, Dhoom 3 is expected to continue its strong performance this week, thanks to Christmas and New Year holidays.

The third instalment of Dhoom franchise has also performed very strongly in overseas markets. In New Zealand, it has crossed the lifetime business of 3 Idiots, Chennai Express and Housefull 2 in just four days, according to estimates. In Australia too, Dhoom 3 is expected to become the highest grosser for any Bollywood movie.

"Dhoom3 does LIFETIME biz of 3I, ChennaiExpress and Housefull2 in just 4 DAYS in New Zealand. Creates HISTORY!" Taran Adarsh tweeted.

Dhoom 3, which features Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra and Katrina Kaif, was also released in dubbed Tamil and Telugu versions.
