were set by Shah Rukh Khan's 'Chennai Express' and Hrithik Roshan's 'Krrish 3'.
The Yash Raj Films produced Dhoom 3 collected Rs 200 crore worldwide in its first weekend, while Salman Khan-starrer Dabangg 2, released a year ago, was the first film to hit Rs 100 crore mark in the first weekend, showing how fast the industry has been growing in less than a year.
Previously only 3 Idiots and Ek Tha Tiger had managed to join the Rs 300 crore club. Now, it is very likely that Dhoom 3 will cross the Rs 400-crore mark.
'Dhoom 3' has broken box office collections records in Pakistan too in the first week of its release. The movie has collected $1,171,800 (Rs 7.25 crore) becoming the biggest opener ever in that country.
