Mohit Suri's directorial "Aashiqui 2" is still going strong at the Indian box office. The film featuring Aditya Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor was not much affected with the release of "Shootout at Wadala" in the country.
The romantic film had a superb first week of business in India and earned approximately ₹39 crore, making it a superhit. Made on a budget of just ₹12 crore, the film has earned ₹27 crore as profit from its theatrical run within seven days of its release.
With ₹39 crore in its pocket, the low-budget film has pushed behind courtroom comedy "Jolly LLB" and adult comedy "Chashme Baddoor".
Both the films - "Jolly LLB" and "Chashme Baddoor" - had made a lifetime business of ₹32 crore and ₹38 crore, respectively, at the domestic box office.
"Aashiqui 2" now requires ₹6 crore to ₹10 crore to beat the lifetime collections of "Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola", "Himmatwala", "ABCD" and "Kai Po Che!" at the box office. If the film remain unaffected with the release of new films and continues to keep pace with its collections, then there are possibilities that it will outperform the others.
Meanwhile, the team of "Aashiqui 2" celebrated the success of the film at a party held at a suburban bar. Among the stars who attended the bash were Bhushan Kumar, Divya Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Mohit's wife Udita Goswami Shagufta Rafique (writer of the film), Jeet Gangulli, Palak Mucchal, and Mithoon.
