May be the threats and call for a ban on the film helped, but Aamir Khan‘s latest release ‘PK‘ has broken all previous records and become Bollywood’s highest grossing film of all time in India. PK has collected more than Rs. 276 crore in just two weeks of release.

PK has overtaken Dhoom 3 and Chennai Express, had also earned close to Rs. 265cr and Rs. 258cr in domestic market respectively.

Trade Analyst Komal Nahta took to micro blogging site Twitter and Tweeted : #PK becomes the highest grossing Hindi film ever with a net all-India total of Rs. 276.32 crore in just 2 weeks. O-U-T-S-T-A-N-D-I-N-G!

PK stars Aamir Khan, Anushka Sharma and Sanjay Dutt and has been appreciated widely by the audiences.

Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, ‘PK’ revolves around the concept of blind belief and Godmen. The movie has got its share of criticism from few religious groups who demanded its ban. The film had an impressive opening, but the recent controversies had affected its collection in the last couple of days. Religious groups went on a rampage in places like Ahmedabad and Bhopal, smashing theatres that were screening the film and demanded a ban on ‘PK’.

In Agra, protesters accused Aamir Khan of double standards and suggested the actor move to Pakistan. However, looks like the film has picked up.
