Aamir Khan starrer 3 Idiots, which is in its second week, is still going strong at the box office. The film has earned Rs.240 crore so far and multiplexes are still screening an average of 10 houseful shows a day.
“Last year Ghajini had broken all records and had gone on to become the biggest grosser in the history of Indian Cinema. No film since has even come close to the business. Now hold your breath and take a seat. 3 Idiots has already crossed the business of Ghajini. In less than 10 days, 3 Idiots has overtaken the entire business of Ghajini in India, overseas... and is still going strong,” Aamir posted on his blog.
Delhi-based distributor Joginder Mahajan said that the movie has earned huge profits even for the distributors. “The movie is successfully running in around 150 screens in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh. Distributors’ share is also record breaking — the film has raked in Rs.1.46 crore for distributors at 52.5 percent only in its first week here,” he said.
