Aamir Khan-starrer PK is continuously making headlines due to the controversy surrounding it, but this seems to be paying well for the film. The film is doing a good business at the box office, both Indian and overseas. The film has already crossed Rs. 200 crore mark in the domestic market, and is doing exceedingly well in the key foreign markets as well.

Aamir Khan's PK has become the highest-grossing foreign language film in North America. The comedy/drama film, which was helmed by Rajkumar Hirani, claimed 7.91 million dollars after two frames, and could soon be securing a place above 2013's Dhoom 3, which had ultimately earned a touch over 8 million dollars at the North American box office, reported.

The story revolves around an alien (played by Khan) who lands in the Rajasthan desert with a mission to study life on Earth. When the device that allows him to communicate with his spaceship is stolen, he sets out to find it while attempting to blend in.

Ultimately, he heads to Delhi where he asks innocent questions that hold a deep and valuable meaning about the belief system that humans have created to reach God.

Although there has been some controversy in India from religious groups against the film, that hasn't affected the box office at all.
