Aamir Khan's 'PK' has reportedly collected over Rs 18 crore at the Pakistani box office in three weeks and is fast heading to shatter the business records of 'Waar' and 'Dhoom 3' in the country, ibtimes.co.in.

"'PK' has made over Rs 18 crore in Pakistan and continues to attract moviegoers. It will be in cinemas until the end of January so I'm sure it will make a lot more," a daily quoted Rizvi as saying.

Distributor Club (PVT) Ltd Marketing Manager Hassaan Rizvi confirmed the news about the film's box office collections in Pakistan. He feels that a strong message and Aamir-Rajkumar's association are main reasons for the film's huge success in the country.

"'PK' has made over Rs 18 crore in Pakistan and continues to attract moviegoers. It will be in cinemas until the end of January so I'm sure it will make a lot more," a daily quoted Rizvi as saying.

"The movie thrives because it entails a strong message and of course because of Aamir Khan and Rajkumar Hirani," he added.

Action thriller Urdu film 'Waar', directed by Bilal Lashari, is the highest-grossing Pakistani film of all time. 'Waar' raked in Rs 22 crore at the Pakistani box office (statistics provided by Saad Baig of Footprint (Pvt) Ltd). Now, 'PK' is inching close to beat that record.

"By January 6, 'PK' had made almost Rs 15 crore and has managed to cross Rs 18 crore in a matter of four days. It is likely that the movie will keep the momentum going and Aamir Khan's depiction of a quirky alien addressing deep rooted social issues will keep the house full," predicted reporters.
