In 2017, eight Hindi films have scored a century at the Box Office. Next in line is Baadshaho which managed a lifetime number of 78 crores. Now it could well have competition, what with Fukrey Returns sprinting towards the 70 crores and then promising a tough fight in its endeavor to surpass the collections of the Ajay Devgn and Emraan Hashmi starrer Baadshaho.
In the film has already collected 66.11 crores after a fantastic second weekend. The momentum is set to be retained in the weekdays as well since there is no competition from either Bollywood or Hollywood. With at least 6-7 crore more expected to be added to this total before the film steps in the third week, the 70 crore mark is set to be surpassed.
That would bring the Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani production in a breathing distance of Baadshaho and unless the film crashes badly (due to lack of screen count), which is quite unlikely, a total of around 80 crore is definitely looking on the cards.
It would then turn out to be a remarkable feat for the film since at least in the recent past ever since the 100 crore club was invented, never before has a small film like this done such wonderful business. However, Fukrey Returns is now rewriting history and it is now becoming more and more interesting to see where does it eventually land up.
