Kareena Kapoor is already in there. Deepika Padukone has joined in as well. And now buzz in the town is that Priyanka Chopra should be the next to follow. It is the ‘now-fast-gaining-steam’ 200 crore club that is turning out to be as exclusive as it gets for ‘members only’.

‘For long Kareena Kapoor held the record for being the only heroine who had a 200 crore film blockbuster to her credit, courtesy 3 IDIOTS. While the feat was unparalleled for years, Katrina Kaif did come close with EK THA TIGER. However, Deepika Padukone has sprinting into the club, what with her CHENNAI EXPRESS crossing the 200 crore. Now all eyes are on Priyanka Chopra turning out to be third actress on the move, what with KRRISH 3 carrying extremely positive vibes,’ comments a source.
With just the teaser promo of KRRISH 3 crossing 1 crore mark in terms of number of views, talk in the trade is that this Diwali film would not just open very well but also be the next ready contender for the 200 crore club.
‘Arrey, I don’t want to put that kind of pressure on me or the film,’ smiles Priyanka when questioned if this feat in the offering was a given, ‘Yes, even if I say it to myself, KRRISH 3 is one of those cohesive films that everyone would want to see. It has this huge appeal for children and parents to everyone. It is a complete family film. However, as far as records are concerned, let us take one step at a time. I am sure the film would be really liked by all though. Rakesh (Roshan) sir has been tremendous in making this one.’
Will Papa and Beta Roshan indeed rewrite record books here? Well, come Diwali and we would know. As for Priyanka, it would indeed be a shot in the arm for the actress who would be happy to add on another big success to her name after an award winning performance in the 100 crore superhit BARFI!
