'Kick' is even short of the Rs 300-crore mark in overall collections with the latest available figure pegging the gross revenue at Rs 294.14 crore.
'Kick' opened to full houses, amassing Rs 26.40 crore on Day 1 – which was later superceded by 'Singham Returns'. But the film maintained its position as the biggest opening weekend grosser of 2014 (Rs 83.83 crore). The film also joined the Rs 100 crore club within five days.
