Rowdy Rathore has a lifetime collection of 131 crores at the box office whereas Toilet: Ek Prem Katha now finally has a collection of 133.60 crores.
“There is a huge difference though between Rowdy Rathore and Toilet – Ek Prem Katha. Former was a ‘masala’ entertainer which came at a time when such South remakes ruled. It had chartbuster songs as well and the action-humour quotient further helped the cause. On the other hand, Toilet – Ek Prem Katha is a social flick and didn’t have any precedent whatsoever. It had to work ‘apnedum par’ and that too on a subject (sanitation) that is typically relegated to documentaries and that too for bare minimum audience,” told an insider to Bollywood Hungama.
