3 IDIOTS has completed 50 days at the box office and after enjoying a long run ever since it's Christmas release, the film is now making way for Shahrukh Khan'sMY NAME IS KHAN which is all set to create havoc at the box office. This Rajkumar Hirani directed film has so far netted 198 crores just from India and it should be a matter of few more days before it crosses the 200 crores milestone.
2010 had begun with a red, courtesy none of the newer releases managing to do anything whatsoever at the box office. However, the only good news was the ongoing success of 3 IDIOTS which continued to rake in moolah all through its run. The film is now the biggest money spinner of all times and an all time blockbuster at that.
Aamir Khan has now scored two consecutive centuries in two years with 3 IDIOTS following GHAJINI that had netted close to 115 crores. The film has not just broken records but created such records which seem unassailable for many more months to come.
Though in the current year there is no '100 crores' money-spinner that one can expect from Aamir Khan, courtesy his only release being DHOBHI GHAT that is targeted at a niche audience, it would be interesting to see what does Aamir Khan sign next. Perhaps a 300 crores blockbuster may just be right the corner in 2011.
