#PK becomes the highest grossing Hindi film ever with a net all-India total of Rs. 276.32 crore in just 2 weeks. O-U-T-S-T-A-N-D-I-N-G!— Komal Nahta (@KomalNahta) January 2, 2015
PK has now crossed the total earnings by films such as Dhoom 3 and Chennai Express, which earned close to Rs. 265 cr and Rs. 258 cr in domestic market respectively.
Dhoom 3 is the highest grossing Bollywood film worldwide, but PK is most likely to break its record in coming days.
It seems the controversy surrounding PK has helped it in making headlines even after two weeks of its release. Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the film is facing protests by some religious outfits.
PK was released on December 19, 2014.
