Salman Khan’s film Kick‘s makers have released full-page newspaper ads saying that Kick has made Rs 300 crore at the worldwide box office. But reports from the trade say the film is yet to cross the super coveted Rs 300 crore club. Wikipedia however lists Kick as having grossed Rs 3.42 billion worldwide, and is behind only Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots in the worldwide BO. The list is topped by Aamir Khan’s Dhoom 3 followed by Shah Rukh Khan’s Chennai Express and Hrithik Roshan’s Krissh 3.
(UPDATE: Kick box office report: Salman Khan’s film struggles at Rs 223.94 crore collections at Indian BO)
However, Kick‘s box office collections in India
are still at Rs 215 crore, as tweeted by trade analyst Taran Adarsh. “#Kick [Week 2] Fri 9.22 cr, Sat 10.62 cr, Sun 14.18 cr, Mon 5.08 cr, Tue 4.21 cr, Wed 3.91 cr, Thu 3.80 cr. Total: ₹ 215.11 cr nett.”
He has also revealed Kick‘s overseas box office collections up to August 6: “#Kick Overseas total till Wed: $ 10.25 million [₹ 62.85 cr]. Many screens yet to report. EXCELLENT!”
As the latest overseas collections of Kick are not available yet, we can safely say the film’s worldwide collections (India + abroad) currently stand at Rs 277.85 crore. If we go by the newspaper ads today, Kick has made it to Rs 300 crore although this is yet to be confirmed. Keep watching this space for more.
