  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report

One of the most awaited film of the year, Rajkumar Hirani’s Aamir Khan starrer, `PK`, released this Friday. The opening was bumper at multiplexes and extraordinary at high end metro multiplexes. PK’s cause was further aided by business house bulk bookings. The single screens were good to above average. The collections improved as the day progressed. The first day (Friday)saw the film netting 27 crore, which increased to 29 crore on the second. The film is expected end the opening weekend netting a huge 85 crore plus from India. `PK` is all set to be at least a super hit, if not more, but it will not be able to achieve the all time blockbuster success of team Hirani-Aamir’s last venture, `3 Idiots`.
