Dhoom 3 has collected Rs 36.22 crore on its opening day at the box office, according to the film’s producer – distributor Yash Raj Films. The film opened to a phenomenal response both at multiplex chains across the country as well as single screens.
If the advance booking for the film is anything to go by, Dhoom 3 (all versions) might just cross the 40 crore mark on Sunday.
Even though exhibitors are over-the-moon with the kind response that the film has got, most believe that the first day business would have been higher if the film’s runtime (which is close to 3 hours) was shorter. However, the advance booking for the entire weekend is fantastic, which should help the film get close to the 100 crore mark in its first weekend!
If the film sustains well on Saturday, Dhoom 3 is well on track to be the fastest film into the 100 crore club, beating the current record of Chennai Express which collected 100 crore in 3 days + paid previews on Thursday.

- Dhoom 3 Hindi – Rs 33.42 crore (record single day collections holiday and non-holiday)
- Regional – Rs 2.8 crore (record for Telugu / Tamil version)
- Total Collections – Rs 36.22 crore
Winner of the first day prediction contest will be announced in sometime.
