Salman Khan's recently released 'Kick' has finally done the thinkable! It has crossed the Rs 200 crore mark, almost comfortably without any problems.
Although having no competition with no other releases in the last week helped the film, it was the slick direction and techniques used coupled with Salman's brilliant performance that catapulted the movie into the big league of sorts. The film was always expected to run full plexes which it did. But unlike other Salman Khan films, 'Kick' definitely was not totally mindless. Plus, the Jacqueline-Salman chemistry along with the pleasant songs have added to the film's success.
Now, after 11 days of its run, Kick has finally blasted into the Rs 200 crore club. According to early estimates, the film collected in the range of Rs 5-6 crore on the second Monday, taking its domestic box office collections to a massive Rs 202.70-203.70 crore. With this, Salman Khan has toppled his previous record smasher 'Ek Tha Tiger' which came inches close to the magical 200 number but stopped at Rs 198 crore.
With Kick still working wonderfully in key areas, the Monday collections has definitely helped it overtake Aamir Khan's '3 Idiots' as well. And given the steady pace the film has been following since its release, it is only a matter of time that 'Kick' also topples 'Chennai Express's lifetime collections of Rs 227 crore.
'Kick' will mark Salman Khan's entry into the Rs 200 crore club which already includes Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan and Hrithik Roshan.
