‘Bajirao Mastani’ Set To Cross 160 Crore
Bajirao Mastani enjoyed a good weekend at the Box Office, hence consolidating its position further. With a good count of screens being retained, the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed film found audience rooting for it. As a result, 34.30 crore more came in the second weekend for the film.
Now this is a very good hold when compared to the opening weekend, which saw 46.77 crore coming in.
Considering the fact that there was continued competition from Dilwale as well as the Hollywood release Star Wars, the Eros film still did well to bring on maximum moolah, hence turning out to be the first choice of the audience.
Currently standing at 120.45 crore, the film is now set for stable weekdays and then one push all over again in the third weekend, which too is an extended three day holiday owing to Friday being the first day of the New Year.
The film has now crossed the lifetime total of Ram Leela [118.7 crore] in 10 days flat, hence turning out to be the biggest ever success for Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
This is also Ranveer Singh biggest grosser till date and he is now the only young star to have two solo 100 crore affairs to his name. On the other hand Deepika Padukone has yet another century added to her tally.
With 6 centuries to her name now (others being Chennai Express, Happy New Year, Ram Leela, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Race 2), she is now an undisputed Number One heroine and is neck to neck with Kareena Kapoor Khan, who too has registered half a dozen such biggies.
Bajirao Mastani will now comfortably cross the 160 crore mark and it has to be seen how much does it score from here. Note: All collections as per production and distributor sources
