After crossing Rs 250 crore with its gross income, "Bajirao Mastani" is now set to enter the Rs 300 crore club. The film continues to draw audiences, and with a strong hold at the box office it will earn Rs 300 crore worldwide soon.
Shah Rukh's "Dilwale" crossed Rs 250 crore and is now close to touching the Rs 300 crore mark. The worldwide gross box office income of "Dilwale" is Rs 287.80 crore, which includes 10-day gross income of Rs 176.97 crore (net income Rs 123.88 crore) and overseas Rs 110.83 crore.
Meanwhile, "Dilwale" and "Bajirao Mastani" shattered the records of Shah Rukh's "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" at the worldwide box office with its gross income. Both the films are now set to beat the record of Kangana Ranaut's highest grosser "Tanu Weds Manu Returns". However, it remains to be seen which movie will beat "Tanu Weds Manu Returns" record first, as "Dilwale" and "Bajirao Mastani" collections are in the same range.
