Aamir Khan stated in 3 Idiots: "Chase Excellence, Success will Just Follow you". How true is that as PK has entered 300 crore nett mark at Indian Box Office by the end of 3rd Sunday. Thus, PK has become the first ever film in Bollywood to do so. PK by the end of 3rd Sunday has crossed 300 crore nett mark. It is not only the highest grosser of all time, but also first one to reach this magical mark. Co-incidentally first 100 crore and 200 crore films are also of Aamir Khan with Ghajini (2008) and 3 Idiots (2009). Thus, it will not be wrong to state that he is becoming a founder of such clubs.

Audiences have made a strong connection with his films as some kind of trust is associated with the films he does.
