With its 6th-day run coming to an end, Bharat has managed to break the lifetime record of yet another biggie i.e Akshay Kumar’s Kesari which also happens to be the highest solo grosser of his career.
The 2019 Hit film did a lifetime business of 153 crores nett and Bharat has already touched 160 crores mark. The Eid 2019 film has also surpassed the lifetime business of multi-starrer comedy film Total Dhamaal (154.30 crores) to become 2nd highest grosser of 2019. Bharat is now only behind Uri: The Surgical Strike which released earlier this year and collected 244.06 crores nett. For the next some days, Bharat will be chasing the target of Uri and if it manages to do so, it will dominate the 2019 chart until the next biggie arrives.
Even though the Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer film has started slowing down, it will continue to break some big records i.e. Baaghi 2 (165 crores), Race 3 (169 crores), Bang Bang (181.03 crores), Bajirao Mastani (184 crores), 2.0 (188 crores) and others in upcoming days.
