Ranbir Kapoor’s Sanju just took a mere week to cross the milestone of Rs 200 crore. But in case you were thinking that the Sanjay Dutt biopic is the only movie to have minted the whopping amount, you are mistaken. There have been quite a few movies in the past that have proved to be successful and have collected over Rs 200 crore at the box office, all in a week’s time.
Bollywood superstar Salman Khan’s movie Sultan had also done incredibly well at the domestic box office. The movie had released on Eid and collected Rs 229.16 crore in nine days. It crossed the Rs 200 crore mark in a week as well. Whereas, the Hindi version of the massively successful Baahubali 2: The Conclusion had minted an impressive Rs 247 crore in seven days. And the figures of the Prabhas and Rana Daggubati film is especially stupendous as the movie had a non-holiday release.
Another Salman Khan movie that was able to do the unthinkable was filmmaker Kabir Khan’s Tiger Zinda Hai, a sequel to the successful Ek Tha Tiger. The movie made Rs 206.04 crore and had a Christmas release. It joined the Rs 200 crore club in seven days as well.
