After becoming the 12th highest grosser, Ranveer Singh's "Bajirao Mastani" is now aiming to beat Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone's "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" lifetime box office collection record. "Dilwale", on the other hand, will not cross Rs 150 crore mark at the domestic box office.
Ranveer, Deepika and Priyanka Chopra starrer "Bajirao Mastani" has accumulated Rs 184.16 crore till its fifth weekend and it continues to run with a good number of screens. "Bajirao Mastani" earned Rs 3.15 crore in its fifth weekend, which took its overall earnings to Rs 184.16 crore. The film is now the 12th highest grosser of all time and third highest grosser of 2015.
" #BajiraoMastani [Week 5] Fri 80 lacs, Sat 1.05 cr, Sun 1.30 cr. Total: ₹ 184.16 cr. India biz. SUPERB!" trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali's directorial film is now close to beat the record of "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani", which earned Rs 188.57 crore in its lifetime run. "Bajirao Mastani" will beat the record of "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani", if it continues to run even after its fifth week.
However, the final verdict in "Bajirao Mastani" box office collection will be out only after the release of Akshay Kumar's "Airlift".
The screen count of Shah Rukh starrer "Dilwale" has dropped drastically and now the film is running in limited multiplexes across India. "Dilwale" domestic box office collection stands at Rs 148.72 crore after its fifth weekend and looks like the film's theatrical run will stop before crossing Rs 150 crore mark.
"Dilwale" will end its domestic box office run with less than Rs 150 crore and will rest at the fourth spot in the highest grosser list of 2015.
