New Delhi: Even as `Singham Returns` broke the first day Box Office collection record of `Kick`, the latter has made it to another milestone. The Salman Khan starrer has continued to rake in the moolah even into its third week.
The release of Rohit Shetty`s action flick has not deterred Salman Khan fans. According to a leading trade analyst, the Box Office predictions for `Kick` surpass that of Rohit`s previous venture with Shah Rukh and Deepika. `Chennai Express` was beaten by Aamir Khan and Abhishek Bachchan starrer `Dhoom 3` later in the year. But, the Salman-Jacqueline flick is 2014`s biggest grosser so far.
Incidentally, the BO collections of `Kick` makes Sajid Nadiadwala the first debutant director to make it to the Rs 200 crore club. The movie has already collected approximately Rs 373 crores worldwide and is just 50 crores behind SRK`s last release.
This is Salman`s biggest grosser till date. `Jai Ho` which released in January this year failed to make any big ripples in the theatres. However coming weeks make be challenging for Salman`s movie. Rani Mukerji`s `Mardaani` is scheduled to release this coming Friday and the expectations from the films are huge as it sees Rani in a never before avatar of a Mumbai cop.
