The film collected over 200 crore at the Box-Office and left each and every person in trade by shock. The film collected approximately Rs 202 crore in its lifetime run at the Box-Office.
Dhoom 3 (2013):
The record set by 3 Idiots was broken by Chennai Express in 2013, however it could not last for a long time. Four months after the release of Chennai Express came Aamir Khan’s Dhoom 3, which shattered every possible record by collecting nearly 275 crore at the Box-Office in India.
After being the founder of 100 and 200 crore club at the Box-Office, Aamir Khan started the 300-crore club with PK.
