It is turning out to be a good run for Thackeray and Bollywood can well enjoy yet another addition to its winning season. On Sunday, the Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer stayed good too as Rs. 6.90 crore [Hindi and Marathi] more came in.
Currently, the film stands at Rs. 22.90 crore and even a reasonable trending from here would take it close to the Rs. 35 crore mark before the week comes to a close. Considering the fact that the film is a biopic and that too for a subject in question who enjoys prominence primarily in the Maharashtra region, these are fine numbers.
On the other hand Uri – The Surgical Strike has set yet another record as now it is officially the highest grossing film amongst the mid-budget affairs. So far the record was held by Tanu Weds Manu Returns which had collected Rs. 152 crore in its lifetime.
