"Bhaag Milkha Bhaag" (BMB), a biopic based on the life of Indian athlete Milkha Singh, has been declared a super-hit film. The film in just 11 days of its release has earned double its production cost.
Made on a budget of approximately ₹30 crore, "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag" has raked in more than ₹73 crore in 11 days of its release.
Until the second weekend the film collected a total of ₹71.29 crore and on the second Monday it raked in approximately ₹2 crore, taking the grand total to ₹73.29 crore.
"#BhaagMilkhaBhaag *actuals - Wknd 2* Fri 4 cr, Sat 6 cr, Sun 7.50 cr. Total: 17.50 cr. Grand total: 71.29 cr. HIT," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
Adding Sunday's collection, the Farhan Akhtar-starrer has topped Akshay Kumar's "Special 26" and Dhanush starrer "Raanjhanaa" at the domestic box office.
"Special 26", a heist drama, has made a lifetime collection of ₹70 crore, while "Raanjhanaa" fetched approximately ₹63 crore in India.
Also, the film has smashed the 10 day-record of blockbuster film "Aashiqui 2". The low budget film starring Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor received a grand response at the box office and raked in ₹46 crore.
Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's directorial is racing towards the ₹100 crore club. The pace at which the film is running at collection centres shows that it will become the third film of the year to enter the century club after "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" and "Race 2".
