Yet another historic day was in the making for Salman Khan, Kabir Khan and their Bajrangi Bhaijaan, what with the film managing to collect over 18 crore. With this, the film is already in the vicinity of 170 crore. Remarkable indeed.
This means further records are set to be tumbled. While lifetime total of Hrithik Roshan’s Bang Bang (181 crore) would be quashed by this evening, there is an outside chance of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (190 crore) to be surpassed as well before end of day.
As for lifetime records of Ek Tha Tiger (198 crore), 3 Idiots (202 crore), Happy New Year (203.3 crore), Chennai Express (226.7 crore) and Kick (233 crore), they would be history by the close of second weekend.
Second half of the 2015 has started on a rollicking note, and one just hopes that the trend continues for rest of the year as well.
