By the second weekend Salman Khan's "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" will break two records -- one in India and another worldwide. The film is now heading for Rs 200 crore mark at the Indian box office and the 300 crore mark at the worldwide box office.
Domestic Box Office Collection
The Salman starrer had an outstanding eighth day at the domestic box office with just 18% fall in its collection compared to the previous day. At the domestic box office, the film has minted a whopping Rs 197.77 crore in just eight days
The total eight days box office collection of "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" is the second highest, beating "PK" record. "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" requires just Rs 3 crore to enter the Rs 200 crore club and by second Saturday the film will achieve the status.
Since there is no big release this week and word of mouth is still strong, "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" will witness big growth in its box office collection on second Saturday.
Salman starrer will also beat the lifetime box office collection record of Shah Rukh Khan's "Happy New Year" and Aamir Khan's "PK" at the domestic box office. "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" is presently the ninth highest grosser of all time, after pushing "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani", and will take the sixth spot with its second Saturday income.
Worldwide Box Office Collection
Kabir Khan's directorial film "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" has earned Rs 83.29 crore from the overseas box office and Rs 197.77 crore from the domestic market.
The total of overseas and domestic box office now stands at Rs 281.06 crore and by second weekend it will cross the Rs 300 crore at the worldwide box office.
"Bajrangi Bhaijaan" has received positive reviews in India as well as in the international market. The film's overseas collection is impressive and will soon become Salman's highest grosser in the international market as well.
The film, which released in more than 5,000 screens worldwide, features Kareena Kapoor Khan, Harshaali Malhotra and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in prominent roles.
