Aamir Khan’s ‘PK’ has finally touched the Rs 300 cr mark on Sunday (January 4). It is also all set to cross the Rs 600 Cr mark worldwide. If it does so, it will be the first ever Bollywood movie to have this distinction.
It’s official now that Aamir Khan holds the rare feat of starting the Rs 100, 200 and 300 Cr club.
Film critic Komal Nahta took to Twitter to share this piece of information.

This is Aamir Khan’s third movie, that has set benchmarks pretty difficult for others to even touch. His earlier release with Rajkumar Hirani, ‘3 Idiots’ was the first to cross Rs 200 cr mark and ‘Ghajini’ with A Murugadoss the Rs 100 cr mark, both nationally.
Released on December 19, ‘PK’ ran into controversy when numerous Hindu religious groups accused the movie to be anti-Hindu and hence, demanded a ban on it; but seems the whole debate has only worked in its favour.
Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the movie features Anushka Sharma opposite Aamir Khan.
