Which film can beat Dhoom 3 collections?

Question: In the coming days, which film has the best chance of beating Dhoom 3 worldwide collections of 520 crore? – Shahab

Answer: Only films that are released during festive periods can cross the 283-crore lifetime business of Dhoom 3, as the contribution from India is much higher than overseas markets. Aamir Khan’s upcoming film PK probably has the best chance, as it will open well not just in the overseas markets but also back here in India. If PK is as good as any of Rajkumar Hirani’s last three films, every record will be history.

But if PK falls below expectations, then it could be Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Fan or Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. Too early to predict anything on those films. Bajrangi Bhaijaan will be an out-an-out Salman Khan film, perfect Eid release. Not much is known about Fan, but Shahrukh Khan recently said that the film is “very intense yet commercial viable”. As for Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, the family audience will come out in numbers to watch Sooraj Barjatya’s feel-good romance, family values and tradition, but the difference will be the youth – if they don’t take a liking to the film, it may not be a huge grosser.

  • @indicine If Dhoom 2 had released in December 2013 would it have made more than Dhoom 3? I feel it would have made 325 crore. What do you think?

  • SRK AND Salman can not compete with Mr. Perfectionist as well. Mr.Perfectionist rules Bollywood even during those years when he has no releases. remember 2010,2011 and 2012 he ruled box office with 3 idiots at the top. and he will do the same during 2015 with PK and dhoom 3 remaining at the top spot.

  • so hny fails on wednesday now what is wom mr. arjun kapoor aka chameleone? Happy New Year Six Days Box Office Collection: Falls on WednesdayHappy New Year Six Days Box Office CollectionWednesday Estimates:7-9 Crore(Trade Figure)6 days Total:130-132 Crore (Trade Figure)Worldwide:219-221 Crores Gross (Trade Figure)Happy New Year is headed for 4th Highest firstweek ever

  • PK will be huge overseas in its opening weekend numbers…!
    In india it will grow after initial opening as positive WOM reaches the masses- in the long run it will have record breaking second weekend n week totals- surpassing 3 idiots- 300 cr domestic n a massive 200cr gross overseas….!

  • Happy New Year ke trailer mein ‘From the makers of Main hoo na & Om shanti om’ to aise likha hai jaise Tees maar khan to Steven Spielberg ne banayi thi… .

  • either baby, gabar or singh is bling, provided that they release in same number of screens and with at least 2 open weeks

  • @indicine: I have long been thinking about this, the reason for Hritik not doing Paani. While it was almost sure that he was going to do paani, ge even spoke about it in public and about working with Shekher Kapoor too. Bt in the end he didn’t. What could be the reason? Same was with Shuddhi. I feel big banners like Yashraj and Dharma use actors for the ptofit and not for quality. I dont prefer to watch Yashraj and Dharma’s movies due to this reason. And we all know about KRK but he once told that Karan Johar is the politician of bollywood in an interview, I think he was right in this case.

  • Pk has great chance to break d3 record if pk dnt break this record then bajrangi bhaijan will do this because it,s have salman and kareena good star cast and kabir khan a good director so bb had good chance

  • now hNY set new benchmanrk for opening day and opening weekend, inshallah , Fan will set more records for first week and total highest collection..

  • @haters. If SRK is nothing without holidays then lallu is nothing without festive releases. Greatest example is jai ho. That’s WY 3 years in advance he has booked eid and diwali.

  • breaking doom3 record? hmmm…OK I guess only a DHOOM4 featuring SALMAN as d THIEF,,,AAMIR wit a more screen space time on par with Salman as d COP and RANVEER.Singh as ALI!!! or a 3idiot part 2 featuring SRK AJAY and SALMAN!!!!! (would love to see KING K and SINGHAM sahab act together at least once!! )

  • for dhoom 4! u have 3actors wit 12 100crores or 4 200crores(considering PK to b in DAT club) between them!! for 3idiots part 2,,,,u have 3actors wit 17 100crores above between them…sure talent class blockbusters!!!

  • Among the films whose release dates are confirmed, only PK has the chance…
    Some are expecting it not to take a record opening but i guess they are wrong…
    After his recent successful streak, people have high expectations from his films… So their is a chance it may take a 30 Opening for sure..

    Bahrangi Bhaijaan looks like a film targeted for Single Screen audience so its Overseas will b very low… So less chances…

    PRDP also has low chance coz Now-a-days people specially youth don’t prefer family movies at all… Their was a huge audience for Such films back n hence HAHK became biggest grossers.
    But PRDP will win hearts for sure if Old Salman is Back…

    But both BB & PRDP will be highest domestic Grossers..

    Fan – forget it…

    Mohenjodaro – very low Chance.. Its a period Drama film n releasing on Republic day…

    Krrish 4 – Too much chances…

  • Everyone saying Hny cant enter 200cr club…yo yo yo….plz wait….its just 6th day….147cr in just 6 th day… weekend us there…..1st week willl 157cr..and weekend will collect around 40 cr…..if u have calculater….then do it….

  • Dhoom 3< PK< Mohenjo-Daro.
    PK should break D3 record (Assuming content is good) and then in 2016 Mohenjo-Daro should break PK record (again assuming content is strong). Salman movies may reach near of breaking, but as we know his movie again have the poorest of story-lines hence won't beat the records.

  • @ the chane Leone, I did not get it. Arjun kapoor’s previous comments still refer as HNY 2 be the best in entertainment and I believe he still holds 2 it.

  • Brand dhoom worked haha biggest Joke if that was the case Bang Bang had our greek god 2 it should have done 300 minimum bcoz of action, katrina, music ..Aamir is on a different level come dec 19th haters will again get a shock like they get on every Christmas

  • I am Salman fan but I think dhoom3 record will not broken by pk, bajrangi bhaijaan, fan, prdp.dhoom3 record will broken either by sultan or shuddhi
