Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan Simmba has earned Rs 232.49 crore after its 3rd week run at the Box Office. The Rohit Shetty‘s directorial managed to sustain despite the release of two anticipated films-The Accidental Prime Minister and Uri: The Surgical Strike, at the Box Office. While the Anupam Kher’s film couldn’t impress the audience, Vicky Kaushal’s Uri is keeping them entertained. Uri’s popularity affected Simmba but the film performed well. Its Thursday collection was Rs 1.18 crore. Here’s the breakup of the Week 3 collection:
Friday: Rs 2.60 cr
Saturday: Rs 4.51 cr
Sunday: Rs 5.30 cr
Monday: Rs 2.87 cr
Tuesday: Rs 2.29 cr
Wednesday: Rs 1.31 cr
Thursday: Rs 1.18 cr
Total: Rs 20.01 cr
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to announce the collection of the film and wrote, “#Simmba got affected by new releases, but still has an outside chance of nearing ₹ 250 cr if it maintains the rhythm… [Week 3] Fri 2.60 cr, Sat 4.51 cr, Sun 5.30 cr, Mon 2.87 cr, Tue 2.29 cr, Wed 1.31 cr, Thu 1.18 cr. Total: ₹ 232.49 cr. India biz”. (sic)
Simmba has crossed the Rs 225 cr benchmark within 18 days of its release. Here’s what Adarsh wrote about the entire business the film has done at the Box Office:
The film is Rohit’s eighth entry in the coveted Rs 100 cr club at Box Office. He has become the only Bollywood director with eight back-to-back Rs 100 cr films at the ticket window. Simmba is also Sara’s first film to have gone past Rs 200 cr at Box Office.
Earlier, talking about casting Ranveer to play the titular role in the film, Rohit told IANS, “We have worked together in an ad film and that is when we started planning to collaborate for a film. But I couldn’t have imagined making Simmba if not for Ranveer Singh, because he is the only actor, who has the strength to pull out such a character”.
He added, “This is the first time we will see Ranveer playing a policeman in an action film. There are certain colourful elements in the character of ‘Simmba’ that Ranveer also has. So, I really had to change my writing if Ranveer would have said ‘no’ to my film. There is a lot of energy in the character, so as in him.”
