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:

Bajrangi Bhaijaan 321 crore
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo210 crore
Tanu Weds Manu Returns 152 crore
ABCD – Any Body Can Dance 2107 crore
Dilwale 102.5 crore* [Final numbers awaited]

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:

Happy New Year205 crore
Chennai Express227 crore
Jab Tak Hain Jaan122 crore
Don 2107 crore
Ra. One 114 crore

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.

Note: All collections as per production and distributor sources
