Aamir Khan's new movie PK is a monster hit, judging by the opening weekend numbers which put the film's collections at Rs 95.21 crore, according to the producers.
"PK collected record Rs 38.24 crore on Sunday which is 30 per cent growth from Saturday, taking the film's total weekend net collection to Rs 95.21 crore (Friday: Rs 26.63 crore; Saturday: Rs 30.34 crore and Sunday: 38.24 crore)," said a statement from the film's producer.
