'Brothers' New Poster

Akshay Kumar and Sidharth Malhotra starrer "Brothers" has emerged as eight highest grosser of 2015 at the domestic box office, after shattering the records of "Dil Dhadakne Do".

Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra starrer "Dil Dhadakne" earned Rs 76.88 crore in its theatrical run, which has now been broken by "Brothers". Akshay-Sidharth starrer action-family drama earned more than Rs 77 crore in just nine-day at the domestic box office.

"Brothers" earned approximately Rs 3 crore on second Saturday, which took its nine-day total to over Rs 77 crore. The film, which is slowly inching towards Rs 100 crore mark, will earn over Rs 8 crore in its second weekend.

Directed by Karan Malhotra, the film also features Jacqueline Fernandez and Jackie Shroff in prominent roles.

On the other hand, Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" is still running successfully in theatres. The box office collection and screen count of "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" has declined, but that has not affected the buzz.

With limited screens, the film is going houseful in several theatres across India. "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" has earned Rs 318.06 crore in 35-day and by six-week, the box office collection will be approximately Rs 320 crore.

Meanwhile, talking of the success of the film Salman said that more than the box office collection, he is happy about audience responses.

"More than the collections, I am happy about the footfalls being that large. Everyone has unanimously come out saying it's an incredible film and so what makes me extremely happy is that our thinking on the film was bang on. India-Pakistan, Hindu-Muslim was just the backdrop, what is truly important is that our thinking matched with the thinking of our audience, proving that there is nothing better than humanity," Salman told The Times of India.
