Produced by Red Chillies Entertainment and Rohit Shetty Productions, the film has so far crossed the Rs 350 crore mark at the box office.
And then there is Bajirao Mastani starring rumoured couple Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. The film, which clashed with Dilwale, took off to a slow start but managed to picked up pace due to good word of mouth.
Ranveer Singh has won Best Actor Award for his performance of Peshwa Bajirao. Indian Express critic Shubhra Gupta wrote in her review: “Deepika Padukone is lovely, and creates sizzle with Ranveer Singh, but hasn’t melded with the part. It is hard to imagine anyone else as Bajirao after Ranveer Singh finishes chewing up the part.”
Bajirao Mastani, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, has earned a total of Rs 347.57 cr. Read Bajirao Mastani review
