Shubh Mangal Saavdhan has emerged as a good Hit at the Box Office with collections staying on to be good right through the 10 days since it has been in theaters. Numbers were good on Sunday too as there was a further jump in collections when compared to Saturday. With 3.25 crore* more coming in, the film’s total currently stands at 31.32 crore*.
This has now made the film one of the better grossers of the year (which has hardly seen many successes) and the road towards the 40 crore lifetime has further widened. The Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar starrer has already gone past the lifetime numbers of films like Phillauri [27.50 crore] and Raabta [25.67 crore]. Next in line are Naam Shabana [37.25 crore], Mom [37.25 crore] and Munna Michael [32.90 crore] while Bareilly Ki Barfi too would be surpassed in the interim period.
As for Baadshaho, the film has managed to cross the 70 crore mark after 10 days. Currently standing at 71.74 crore*, the film has gone past the lifetime numbers of Hindi Medium [69.50 crore] and emerged as the seventh grossing Hindi film of the year. This is where it would stay eventually since all six Bollywood flicks above it, right from Raees to Kaabil, are 100 crore affairs and the Milan Luthria directed film won’t be able to hit a century. It would now be interesting to see whether the journey towards the 80 crore mark would be smooth for the film or would it have to wait right till the middle of the third week for it to happen.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
