SOS has finally made it to the coveted Rs 100 crore club. While Ajay’s flick took 16 days to get there, SRK’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan made it in just 11 days
After all the sho-sha surrounding Son Of Sardaar, producer-actor Ajay Devgn can now heave a sigh of relief. Devgn, who vigorously fought the distribution battle with Yash Raj Films, finally has reasons to smile. The romantic comedy touched the Rs 100 crore mark on the auspicious day of Gurunanak Jayanti, 16 days after its release. Naturally, the actor proudly announced the news on Twitter and thanked all his fans: ‘100 crores only in India! What a day for Son Of Sardaar to cross 100 Crores on guru nanakji’s birthday! I am blessed! Thank u everyone’.
In the meanwhile, the Shahrukh Khan-Katrina Kaif-Anushka Sharma starrer Jab Tak Hai Jaan made at a budget of Rs Rs 50 crores surpassed the milestone figure in just 11 days since its release, but it also had more screens as compared to SOS. The over-whelming response to SOS at single screen centres, pushed theatre owners and distributors to give 238 additional screens to the movie in its second week, which certainly helped it to cross the Rs 100 crore mark. The film may not be able to earn more moolah once Talaash hits the screens tomorrow.
But now that both JTHJ and SOS have hit the bull’s eye, let’s wait and watch if Talaash and Dabangg 2 too can create new box office records.
