Romantic drama "Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-leela" is inching towards the ₹100-crore mark at the Indian box office.
The film has earned ₹86.8 crore in eight days at the domestic box office and is continuing its good run despite new releases. The Ranveer-Deepika starrer is expected to have had a good second weekend (22-24 November). The details about the film's collections are yet to be confirmed.
Apparently, the release of "Gori Tere Pyaar Mein" and "Singh Saab The Great" has not affected "Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-leela" collections. The film managed to rake in ₹4.65 crore on Friday (22 November) although there were new releases. Its eight-day collections stand at ₹86.8 crore, which makes it one of the highest opening week grossers in India, according to Bollywood Hungama.
The film has surpassed opening week collections of several Bollywood blockbusters including "3 Idiots" (₹79.07 crore), "Rowdy Rathore" (₹79.52 crore), "Race 2" (₹76.1 crore), "Don 2" (₹75.51 crore) and "Ready" (₹68.02 crore) among others at the domestic box office.
The Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial has been doing good business in overseas markets as well. The film has already earned ₹100 crore at the worldwide box office and is racing towards that mark at the Indian box office as well. The film is expected to enter into the elite ₹100-crore club by the end of its second week.
By doing so, the Ranveer starrer will become the seventh film of the year to join the club along with other films including "Krrish 3", "Chennai Express", "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani", "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag", "Race 2" and "Grand Masti".
However, it might be difficult for "Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-leela" to make it to the ₹200-crore club, which so far has only three films - "Chennai Express", "Krrish 3" and "3 Idiots".
