And rest assured, there will be more coming...
Bajrangi Bhaijaan is an emotional human story that has struck a chord with everyone. Salman Khan‘s makeover as this innocent yet determined go-getter and Harshali Malhotra’s cute bonding with him have won hearts everywhere. No wonder that it is squashing every record ever made on its way to make new ones. While it enters the 200 crore club today, let us give a brief on the number of records this film has amassed.
Salman Khan’s Biggest Pre-eid opener
Bajrangi Bhaijaan hit the theatres on July 17 riding on thunderous frenzy. So it wasn’t surprising to see the number towards the end of the day. It earned a whopping 27.25 crore on its first day at the theatre which is the highest pre-eid opener for any Salman film. Kick had managed 26.50 crore on its first day.
Biggest opener of 2015
2015 has seen its fair share of ups and downs and till the Bajrangi Bhaijaan storm engulfed the box office, Varun Dhawan‘s ABCD 2 had registered the highest opening day collection of this year at 14 crore. But with BB, that got easily sidelined. The 27.25 crore opening of BB surpassed ABCD 2‘s score pretty easily.
Highest one day collection ever
BB continued to wow audience and record crazy numbers. The day 2 collections of the film was at 36.60 cr while day 3 recorded a mind-blowing 38.75 crore. That made the film which has recorded the highest single day collection by a Salman Khan film.
Biggest international opener for a Salman Khan film
It’s not India that was swooning over the cutesy Bajrangi but the world as well. It registered the highest opening weekend internationally at $ 8 million (50.89 cr). This Salman’s biggest opener internationally.
Most 100 crore films by any star
Salman Khan is the man of the moment. His Midas touch is not wearing off at all and he continues to churn out blockbusters after blockbusters. Such is his craze that he has become the only star to have eight 100 crore films in his kitty, highest by any superstar.
150 crore in five days
Bajrangi Bhaijaan was racing towards more records and made a whopping 151.05 cr in just five days! Incredible is not the word!
No 10 on USA box office charts
With its roaring box office success, BB was estimated to collect a sum of $ 700k on its first Friday in USA as well as Canada. The venture earned the 10th position on that week’s box office chart in USA, beating Sir Ian McKellen’s Mr Holmes!
Further, Bajrangi Bhaijaan has also managed to retain its No. 1 position despite big releases like Shah Rukh Khan's Dilwale and Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Bajirao Mastani and Salman's another hit, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo! On that note, kudos to Team BB!
