The romantic-drama flick, starring Ranveer and Deepika, continued its good run in its second week despite the release of two films - "Gori Tere Pyaar Mein" and "Singh Saab The Great".

Although the new films had a wide release on Friday (22 November), they failed to get off to a flying start in its first weekend. The performance of "Gori Tere Pyaar Mein" was dismal, whereas "Singh Saab The Great" had a decent outing in mass-dominated circuits, reported Bollywood Hungama.

"Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-leela", which released on 15 November, ruled the box office pushing down "Gori Tere Pyaar Mein" and "Singh Saab The Great". The Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial has fared better than the other two films, thanks to positive word of mouth that gave a boost to its earnings. In several circuits, the film ate into the business of "Gori Tere Pyaar Mein" and "Singh Saab The Great", the website reported.

At this rate, the Ranveer-Deepika starrer is expected to cross the ₹100-crore at the domestic box office soon. The film has earned ₹86.8 crore in eight days (till Friday) at the domestic box office. Details about the film's collections on Saturday and Sunday are still awaited.

Although "Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-leela" has managed to dominate over "Gori Tere Pyaar Mein" and "Singh Saab The Great" in its second week, it remains to be seen how the film will fare in its third week when Saif Ali Khan's "Bullett Raja" releases (29 November). The release of a new film could reduce the screen count of past releases. 

The pre-release buzz for the action entertainer is quite positive. If the film fetches good reviews, it migh affect the business of "Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-leela", "Gori Tere Pyaar Mein" and "Singh Saab The Great."
