The debacle surrounding the box office of income of Krrish 3 is one of 2013’s most infamous scandals. With Dhoom 3 seeking a release next week, Koimoi asked the opinion of film’s lead actor Aamir Khan on the same.

The perfectionist actor retorted saying, “Numbers have been getting fudged since forever. There is nothing new about it. But if one decides to manipulate figures they are fooling themselves. There is no merit in doing that.”

The actor continued saying, “The best yardstick to see how your film has fared is to check how many weekends has the film run. A film that is heavily performed will earn for multiple weekends. In my opinion it shows how consistently the film has earned.”

Dhoom 3 is a slick action film that also stars Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra and glam doll Katrina Kaif in lead roles. The movie is all set to hit the screens on 20th December, 2013.

  1. there is intended negativity spread by some people on krrish 3… e.g. krish3 screens 4000+ occupnecy opening day 75%+ BOI reported collection opning day 17 cr…whereas Ramleela opned on 2600+ screens.. % occupency 55-60%.. opening collection reported by BOI = 17cr.. how is it logical…

  2. Numbers have been getting fudged since forever what did u say amir it means ghajini and 3 idiots collections were also fudged and you will do it with Dhoom 3 too. wow what an amazing declaration.

  3. AAMIR WAKE UP SHUT UP IF U SAID SO WHILE THERES SO MANY HATERS AROUND HOWEVER I CANT BELIEVE U CAN SAY SOMETHING LIKE THAT AS HRITHIK ALWAYS WANTED THE BEST FOR DHOOM 3 N ITS A FACT THAT KRRISH 3 IS THE BIGGEST BLOCKBUSTER TILL DATE FAR BIGGER THAN CHENNAI EXPRESS N I WONDER IF U R A HONEST PERSON LIKE HRITHIK THEN YOUR FILM WILL SCORE BIG

  4. rohan, aamir is just being honest. he is not specifically saying krrish 3. it is not that he hates hrithik, he also wishes best for hrithik.

  5. so according to aamir …ddlj and sholay are the bigest blockbuster while taking no of week and time value of money in to consideration

  6. really very sad by amir .its not suit to your personality.you are a legend and should behaive like this.accept hrithik’ challenge dont afraid of him

  7. I can see clearly that Aamir Khan’s opinion is that the figures were inflated..kudoos for his honesty he has the guts to say it openly!

  8. As far as I know about Amir Khan, he wont say anything against any actor or film. This comment is by Mohar Basu which we should not value. It doesn’t mean purticularly any film. This is also the creation of Mohar Basu. So sad for KOIMOI to have this kind of reviewer. If the opinion is to be asked the film chennai express should be in figure where the collection reached extreme without having any base of a good film.

  9. Only films having khan r not under scanner bt when Hrithik performed well and looking at the crowd at cinemas for 10 days it was impossible for krrish 3 to under perform in comparison to Chennai express

  10. As per Aamir, a good film is one which runs for more number of weekends…illogical…..i would have agreed if he would have said that “a good film is one which runs for more number of weekends when there is no competition”. He himself always releases his movie at christmas…end of year with 4-5 free weekends…when there is no film releasing….He should set a example by releasing his movie during pre diwali phase and amongst competition from other good movies in 2nd or 3rd week and then speak about collections and movie…Even as per BOI collections Krish 3 collected close to 180 Crs which is very close to ETT collections of 186 Crs which released with 2 national holidays(Eid, I.Day) ….Appreciate that Krish 3 collected 180 Crs during pre diwali phase, with not even one national holiday (monday was not national holiday, Holiday except south india) and amongst competition from Ram leela in 3rd week….even without considering inflated collections Krish 3 is one of the greatest hits….
