The 276 crore of #PK is like a slap on faces of frustrated lot.Just like tax-free to PK in U.P. is on face of religious gurus who cried foul- Komal Nahta (@KomalNahta) January 2, 2015
Apart from PK, the top all time grossers include, Dhoom: 3 (261 cr), Kick (212 cr), Chennai Express (208 cr) and 3 Idiots (201 cr)
Meanwhile, Aamir, clearly retains his position as one of the most valuable players in the industry.
