Ajay Devgn’s ‘Singham Returns’ has crossed the Rs 100 crore mark but that isn’t why it has made news. The fact that it touched the magical figure in just five days is what makes Ajay Devgn‘s ‘Singham Returns’ special.

The much awaited Salman Khan starrer ‘Kick’ struck gold at the box office and no one was surprised to know that. Although, Sallu bhai’s last release ‘Jai Ho’ turned out to be quite a shocker and didn’t mint enough money at the box office. But Salman Khan and his team including director-producer Sajid Nadiadwala, Jacqueline Fernandez, Randeep Hooda, Mithun Chakraborthy and Nawazuddin Siddiqui packed a punch at the cinema screens and managed to cross the Rs 100 crore hurdle.

According to Koimoi, ‘Kick’ has so far made Rs 126.70 crore in just 5 days. ‘Kick’ that released just ahead of Eid has already touched the magical figure of Rs 100 crore that is touted to be the litmus test of films these days. While it continue to enjoy a good run at the box office, ‘Kick’ could not break the record of ‘Dhoom 3’ that has made the fastest Rs 100 crore so far.

We expect nothing less than a bumper opening for an Aamir Khan film and the perfectionist actor and his team of ‘Dhoom 3’ got the same kind of response. Not only did ‘Dhoom 3’ starring Aamir Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra, Jackie Shroff and Katrina Kaif made

Rs 100 crore but it has gone down in history as the fastest film to have done so. ‘Dhoom 3’ that released on Christmas last year in 2013 made Rs 100 crore in just three days! According to Koimoi, the total collections of ‘Dhoom 3’ were Rs 280.25 crores. It was the first time that Aamir Khan played the villain for the very successful film series. No other film has so far broken this record. 

Chennai Express:

Top 10 Bollywood Movies

If we are talking about fastest Rs 100 crore that films have made so far, we cannot rule out the Badshah of films – Shah Rukh Khan. King Khan’s last release ‘Chennai Express’ directed by Rohit Shetty and co-starring Deepika Padukone made Rs 100 crore in 3.5 days of its release. According to a report by Koimoi, ‘Chennai Express’ touched the golden figures of Rs 100 crore in a little more than three days.

However, the film did not stop at just that and went ahead and made a grand total of Rs 226.70 crore at the box office as per Koimoi reports. Considering Shah Rukh Khan is a huge marketing magnet himself, the superstar waved his magic marketing wand over the audiences who helped him mint so much moolah at the box office so quickly. 

Krrish 3:

While everyone loves Hrithik Roshan a lot, children especially love to see their favourite hero play superhero in the ‘Krrish’ series. ‘Krrish 3’ was loved by Hrithik fans so much that the film gobbled up Rs 100 crore in no time at all. In just four days, ‘Krrish 3’ crossed the Rs 100 crore hurdle.
