3 Idiots finished its lifetime run at the box office with Rs 202.47 crore, which was a big feat because the movie was released only on 1700 screens. 3 Idiots took 70 days to reach this milestone, first film entered this club.
After 3 Idiots, there was not a single film able to enter 200 crore club movies for a long time. Salman Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger (Rs 198 crore) and Ranbir Kapoor Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (Rs 188 crore) both were very close to Bollywood’s 200 crore club movies.
