Aamir Khan, Anushka Sharma starer PK has become the first film to touch the Rs.300-crore mark in its box office earning in domestic markets.

According to Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh, the social satire which invited ire from several religious groups became the first Bollywood film to enter the Rs.300-cr club.

Prior to this, Aamir-starrer Dhoom 3 was the biggest earner with Rs.271.82 crore followed by Salman Khan starrer Kick (Rs.244 crore) and Shah Rukh Khan’s Chennai Express (Rs.228 crore).

An Interesting observation by Taran Adarsh is also that the top three films to have first scored the 100, 200 and 300 crore milestone are all Aamir Khan starrers. #Ghajini first Hindi film to cross Rs.100 cr. 3 Idiots first Hindi film to cross Rs.200 cr. #PK first Hindi film to cross Rs.300 cr,” as Adarsh tweeted.
Director Rajkumar Hirani stated, “I had never in my wildest dreams thought this film will cross these numbers. It reinforces faith that content is king. We can continue making films we believe in. The messages I get are overwhelming. People are watching the film over and over again. It’s humbling,”
