Fastest to 100 crores: Dhoom 3 beats Chennai Express

Aamir Khan’s Dhoom 3 has become the fastest film to collect Rs 100 crores at the domestic box office. The Hindi version of the film has crossed the 100 crore net mark in just 3 days.

Dhoom 3 has beaten Chennai Express which collected around 93.5 crore in 3 days, but crossed the 100 crore mark including paid previews. But the biggest difference between the two films is – Chennai Express had three holidays (Saturday was a holiday in parts of the country), but Dhoom 3 released during a non-holiday weekend with only one holiday on Sunday.

Other films that have collected 100 crore or more in less than a week are – Krrish 3, Ek Tha Tiger, Dabangg 2, Bodyguard and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.

  • Mr. Perfectionist deserves to make history in Bollywood.I am from Kathmandu, I already watched this movie last Saturday and again i am going to watch this movie next Saturday. Respect you AAMIR, What a performance you did in this movie, Just amazing. one and only you can do such role in Bollywood.

  • dhoom 3 is a sequel whereas ce was nt…u cannot compare both…dhoom 3 is just running on its brand name..n nt bcoz of aamir khan….srk is the king of bollywood boxoffice …

  • Who will remain as the best,sexiest and coolest theif of dhoom series? ?
    Who made dhoom franchise so huge? ?
    Answer is common and obvious.

  • “At just 236 locations, Dhoom 3 set a new Bollywood record with $3.3 million. While Bollywood movies tend to be very front-loaded, there’s a chance that the holidays help Dhoom 3 ultimately get past $10 million” ~ Boxofficemojo (about the busines of dhoom 3 in USA )

  • Indian movies on IMDB list

    #169 – Taare Zameen Par
    #177 – 3 Idiots
    #178 – Rang De Basanti
    #243 – Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India

    aamir makes India proud.

  • When vijay krishna works with akshay result is tashan and when he works with aamir result is dhoom3.i don’t know how that biigest flopstar akki is still getting movies,he should retire now.

  • Srk fans, stop crying like babies. The bottom line is
    D3 shattered CE within 4 months. In next 2 weeks,
    each n every record held by CE will be history.
    Whats more interesting is there wont be any
    respite for srk fans coz another silent Tsunami
    called ‘Jai Ho’ going to hit srk fans hard. CE will be
    out of Top 3 grossers !!!!

  • Congratulations to Aamir Khan and to his smaller fanbase….!

    It just goes to prove why Srk is Youtube King…! The vast majority of Srks global 3.4 billion fans only watch his movies on Youtube whereas Aamirs fans watch his movies in theatres and some ‘foolish but privileged’ souls pay an extortionate 900 rupees for the pleasure…! Lol

    Allz well that endz well- Aamir roxXxXx once again and Christmas is saved again even if Santa does or does not make an appearance this year.

  • til HNY releases…salman may set record of 2 days wit either kick o jai ho setting d record…records r meant to b broken…so no big deal for me really…

  • Fastest to 100 crore Race was not a equal fair race according to lungiwalas…!

    I think they are right and heres why, Aamir had a BMW Bike whereas as Buddha had a Victorian Era Depressing Train which was even more antique than him so clearly this was not a fair race Indicine. Please be fair in future and factor this in as it upsets lungiwalas who think objectively that had their Youtube King driven a bmx bike for example then the race may have been even closer…! :-P

  • @nipun alcoholic Yes bro the answer is Aamir but why cloud the issue by being so ambiguos. Dhoom is now known worlwide thanxXx to Aamir Sir…! ;-)

  • @indicine first of all congrates to amir and dhoom 3 team and indicine ce have adv of holiday,paid preview and movie runtime while D3 have adv of widest release then ce almost 800 screen so be nutral and if v take weekend num of CE with pp then 100.42 and D3 100.76
    So as always diff 30+ lakhs

  • @yash Ramukaka be fair yair…

    Holiday release versus non holiday release makes a BIG difference too ramukakaa… I know everyday for lungiwalas is a holiday so it doesnt make a difference but the rest of us chaiwalas, rickshawwalas and mathiawalas have to work 6 days a week as otherwise how will any of us be able to afford to buy extortionate IMAX tickets at 900rupee a go…?

    Ramukaka its a tough world if you are not a fortunate lungiwala subject of Thakur of Chennai, you guys can watch your Sarkars sorry Thakurs movies on Youtube for free but the rest of us have to pay through the doors to enjoy mindless masala flicks in unnecessary IMAX format…! :-(

  • d3 breaking records of ce outside India is not a big deal…outside India a week before and after Christmas r holidays…ce released during eid time n eid tym is holiday only in India n nt outside India…

  • @vijay:get life maan excuses after excuses all SRK fans nothing else. After so many years SRK created one record and after few months only first KRRISH-3 and now DHOOM-3 dump that record ha ha ha poor SRK fans.

  • @navin ramukaka i saw both movies advantages and in same period 800 screen u can count as advantage and i know D3 did it on nonholiday which is biggest achievment and u hav problem with srk but i hv not with amir

  • i want to ask one question from hr fans n srk fans.if hrithik made the dhoom franchise so popular den y his own film krrish 3 not collected dis amount in overseas or india.whatever dhoom3 is collecting its bcoz of aamir more dan 70 percent not bcoz its dhoom franchise.dhoom 3 is collecting dis much amount bcoz aamir name is associated with it.believe it or not….

  • Now the fans of stripers and jokers are comparing their stars with the king..

    srk is the undisputed king of bwood…. collection to aajkal deepika v kar rahi haii(228+188+116+102=634cr) in a single calender…
    Much ahed than your new king(joker)..

  • Indicine Why you give a tittle Like this broke this and that.Why you say he broke his record and his record,is not actor who break or m?k? record it is a film who m?k? record Come out of this mentality.There is hundred other people Work for film not only aamir sallu or srk.grow up and pls give credit to other actors of the film as well.
