Dhoom: 3 mints over Rs 35 crore on opening day

Aamir Khan-starrer action thriller Dhoom: 3 opened the way many had expected before its release. The film has collected more than Rs 35 crore on its opening day.

Dhoom: 3, that was made at an approximate budget of Rs 100 crore, has collected Rs 36.22 crore - Rs 33.42 crore in Hindi and Rs 2.80 crore in Tamil and Telugu, said a statement.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted on Saturday, 'Dhoom: 3 emerges the biggest non-holiday opener ever.’

Also featuring Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra and Katrina Kaif, the movie with complicated stunts reportedly released in about 4,000 screens in India.

‘It is an extraordinary movie. Big names like Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif are part of this Yash Raj film. It was also hyped by Bollywood fraternity. We got Rs 3.5 crore worth pre-booking. On day one, there was over 90 percent occupancy,’ Gautam Dutta, COO, PVR Cinemas, said. In the film, Abhishek and Uday return as Jai Dixit and Ali.

Aamir is seen in a negative role as a gymnast in the film while Katrina portrays an acrobat diva. It also released down south in dubbed versions on Friday and clashed with Tamil film Biriyani in Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. But the film produced by Yash Raj Films banner managed to get an impressive opening. ‘Although Dhoom: 3 was competing with Tamil film Biriyani, it still managed to register a good opening.'
