Comparison with Hollywood
Bollywood films Dabangg, Chennai Express, Krrish 3 stands nowhere in competition of Hollywood movies in terms of gross collection. To enter the top 50 films (gross earning), Dhoom 3 will need to earn more than Rs4500 crore, which none of us is expecting. Our expectations are limited to total earning of Rs500 crore for Krrish 3 and Dhoom 3. It is still a long journey for Indian films to be No.1 on world platform.
