Vidur’s Film Diary – December 2013


2
MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JANUARY 10, 2014   04.25 P.M.
Month of December 2013 will be remembered for ” Dhoom 3 “ , the highest grosser film of Hindi film industry. It earned 250 crores within 14 days and dashed all previous box office records . It is still going strong as I  write and publish this blog. It’s total domestic collection till date is INR 272.50 crores. ” Dhoom 3 “ has become all-time blockbuster.
” Krrish 3 “ , a Hritik Roshan film , stands second with the All – India net collection of INR 243.24 crore in India and INR 300.00 crore worldwide . ” Chennai Express “ stands third with the collection of INR 226.70 crore.
It is so uncanny that all the Hindi films of 200 crore club have my students working in various fields. Here is the list :
1 – ” 3 Idiots “ [ 200.57 crores ] ………………………….. Kareena Kapoor
2 – ” Chennai Express “ [ 226.56 crores ] …………… Rohit Shetty / Shekhar Ravjiani / Nikitin Dheer
3 – ” Krrish 3 “ [ 244.60 crores ] ………………………… Hritik Roshan / Priyanka Chopra / Vivek Oberoi
4 – ” Dhoom 3 “ [ 272.50 crores & still counting ] ……… Uday Chopra / Katrina Kaif / Ashish Singh
[ My 10 students in all the 04 films of 200 crore club ]
