Ranveer Singh's film is unstoppable at the box offices in India, but Shah Rukh Khan's film is leading at the overseas box office. At the worldwide box office, "Dilwale" has grossed more than "Bajirao Mastani" in their 17-day theatrical run.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali's historic period drama has grossed Rs 321 crore at the worldwide box office, while "Dilwale" has grossed close to Rs 350 crore.
"Bajirao Mastani", also starring Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, accumulated Rs 162.35 crore net and Rs 231.93 gross from Indian markets, while the 17-day overseas earnings of the film is Rs 90 crore.
"#BajiraoMastani is UNSTOPPABLE. [Week 3] Fri 7.50 cr, Sat 6 cr, Sun 7 cr. Total: ₹ 162.35 cr. India biz... Overseas $ 13.5 mn [₹ 90 cr], (sic)" trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
The domestic box office box office collection of "Bajirao Mastani" is higher than Shah Rukh's "Dilwale", but on the other hand, Ranveer's film is trailing in the international market.
Meanwhile, "Bajirao Mastani" is the third-highest grosser of 2015 and 13th-highest grosser of all time. The film has shattered the records of Salman Khan's "Dabangg 2" (Rs 155 crore) to gain the 13th spot in the all-time top grossers' list.
The Shah Rukh-Kajol-starrer's domestic run has slowed drastically. The film is earning in the range of Rs 2-3 crore in its third week from Indian markets. The 17-day net domestic earnings of "Dilwale" stands at Rs 142.92 crore, while the gross income is Rs 204.17 crore.
Surprisingly, the overseas box office income of "Dilwale" is better than its domestic earnings. "Dilwale" minted Rs 149.80 crore globally in 17 days, while Rs 142.92 crore from India.
"#Dilwale Week 1: 102.65 cr. Week 2: 31.22 cr. Week 3: Fri 3.41 cr, Sat 1.90 cr, Sun 2.40 cr. Grand total: ₹ 141.58 cr. India biz. #Dilwale Overseas total: $ 22.5 million [₹ 149.80 cr]... UAE-GCC alone is $ 7.5 million. UK 4th SRK film to cross £ 2 million, (sic)" Adarsh tweeted.
"Dilwale" continues to score well internationally, while in India the collection might stop after the release of Farhan Akhtar's "Wazir". On the other hand, "Bajirao Mastani" will continue to fetch in money even after the release of "Wazir".
