Dilwale maintained its consistent pace well on Wednesday as well, and as a result has now crossed the 100 crore mark. With 102.5 crore* coming in, the film has now stepped into the 100 crore club, hence being only the fifth Hindi film this year to manage this feat. The others are:
Interestingly, Varun Dhawan already has a 100 crore success in there (ABCD – Any Body Can Dance 2) and it would be his second this year.
As for Shahrukh Khan, it is his sixth 100 crore success in a row:
Though both Happy New Year and Chennai Express had managed this feat by the time their first weekend was through, Dilwale had to wait for a while due to lesser screens and very tough competition from Bajirao Mastani.
The Rohit Shetty flick has got number of screens in its second week and though at multiplexes this is lesser than Bajirao Mastani, it is still optimal as the distribution would have been similar had there been a release of some new biggie in this week.
The film would comfortably cross the 150 crore mark which would qualify it as a Hit. Its run beyond this mark would be decided by the footfalls it manages to attract in this all important three day long Christmas weekend.
