Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor-starrer "Baaghi" has become the fourth highest grosser of 2016. The 17-day box office collection of "Baaghi" is placed after Akshay Kumar's "Airlift," Shah Rukh Khan's "Fan" and Sonam Kapoor's "Neerja."
The collection of "Baaghi," a romantic action film directed by Sabbir Khan, declined after enjoying a good two-week run at the domestic box office. In 17-days, the film minted Rs. 74.94 crore.
With its 17-day box office collection, "Baaghi" overshadowed Fawad Khan-Sidharth Malhotra's "Kapoor and Sons" and took the fourth spot at the domestic box office. "Kapoor and Sons" had minted Rs. 73.29 crore in its lifetime run and became the fourth highest grosser. But now, the Tiger-Shraddha starrer shattered the records.
"#Baaghi collects â‚¹ 1.95 cr in Weekend 3... [Week 3] Fri 54 lacs, Sat 63 lacs, Sun 78 lacs. Total: â‚¹ 74.94 cr. India biz," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
The action drama will soon beat the records of Sonam Kapoor's "Neerja" to grab the third position at the box office. But it is highly unlikely that the film will break the records of Shah Rukh Khan's "Fan," which is the second highest grosser.
Meanwhile, after the success of "Baaghi" the makers have planned for a sequel and have started working on that.
"Baaghi is the second hit in a row for Sajidbhai, Tiger and me. It has already crossed Rs70 crore in India and Rs100 crore worldwide. While we were hoping it would do well, we were surprised by the love the film has found. Sajidbhai is very happy and we have discussed that we would all love to make it a franchise. The conversation came up and he has also spoken to Tiger, who is also excited about the idea!" director Sabbir confirmed to DNA.
