baadshaho, hab harry met sejal, ajay devgn, shah rukh khan Ajay Devgn’s Baadshaho is raking in good numbers at the box office.

Ajay Devgn and Emraan Hashmi’s camaraderie in their latest outing Baadshaho is receiving the love of the audience ever since its release. The film has managed to rake in a total of Rs 73.32 crore in its run of just ten days at the box office. While it has been receiving mixed reviews from critics, little did we expect that the film will be able to beat the total collection of Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal so quickly.

Imtiaz Ali’s Jab Harry Met Sejal had managed to collect Rs 64.32 crore in its lifetime, which was around 5 weeks at the ticketing counters. And Baadshaho has had just 10 days here and has already beaten the record. It looks like this Milan Luthria film has a long way to go in the future. However, Baadshaho’s figures are reflecting a downward trend in its second week. At the end of week 1, the film stood at Rs 64.14, as tweeted by Taran Adarsh, meaning till its second Tuesday, it has collected only Rs 9.18 crore.

Baadshaho revolves a gold heist planned during the 1975 Emergency period and also stars Ileana D’Cruz, Esha Gupta, Vidyut Jamwal and Sanjay Mishra in the lead roles. Talking about the box office numbers, Baadshaho director Milan Luthria told indianexpress.com, “I think I was misquoted when someone wrote I am not interested in numbers. I do look at the numbers. The point I was trying to make is that a filmmaker has to divide his attention. It would be a lie to say that we are not focused on numbers. We are running an expensive business, there is a lot of money and many careers at stake.”

On the other hand, Jab Harry Met Sejal’s collections, according to bollywoodhungama.com were as follows:

1. End of Week 1 – Rs 59.65 crore

2. End of Week 2 – Rs 64 crore

3. End of Week 3 – Rs 64.26 crore

4. End of Week 4 – Rs 64.30 crore

5. End of Week 5 – Rs 64.32 crore

Let’s see where Baadshaho goes in terms of numbers!

    Not sure what made you compare this movie with that srk . Infact, I don't understand why you even care to write articles that relate to srk in any way. That guy is making bull movies for the last decade or so. Its high time you guys need to dig a big grave and bury your instincts to bring srk in news all the time, he doesn't deserve it anyway. Upto you folks if you want people to like your news portal or not.

        Its unacceptable that these converted cowards and using Bollywood to glorify these mughal terrorist, look at taimur the limp, allaudin khilji, akbar etc. they are doing this becaz they think we Indians will anyhow go and watch their movies. That is why they insults us. We need to kick them out of bollywood so that they can run their hair salons.

          These muslims converts are very inferior cowards who instead of fighting mugal terrorists, bend knees and converted. But we have made these cowards as heroes becaz of our ignorence. Its time that we correct our mistakes. Cowards shuld be treated as cowards. I pity on their existence.
