Shah Rukh Khan's "Dilwale" has failed to beat the lifetime box office collection of "Tanu Weds Manu Returns", while Ranveer Singh's "Bajirao Mastani" remains the third highest grosser of 2015 in India.
Shah Rukh's film has failed to beat Rs 150 crore lifetime box office collection of Kangana Ranaut starrer "Tanu Weds Manu Returns" in India. "Dilwale" now is the fourth highest grosser of 2015 in India and at the worldwide box office it stands at the third position.
"Dilwale" worldwide box office collection stands at Rs 387.53 crore, which is the third highest after "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" and "Bajrangi Bhaijaan". The worldwide box office collection of "Dilwale" is good because of its overseas earnings. Out of the Rs 387.53 crore, the overseas box office contributed $25.6 million i.e approximately Rs 172.8 crore.
Ranveer, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra starrer "Bajirao Mastani" will end its worldwide lifetime run with Rs 360 crore. In India, "Bajirao Mastani" has raced ahead of "Dilwale", but at the worldwide box office SRK's film is ahead of it with a big margin.
"Bajirao Mastani" earned Rs 184.16 crore net and Rs 263.09 crore gross from the domestic box office, while the overseas income is approximately Rs 97.82 crore. The film will not be able to cross Rs 200 crore mark in India with its net income, but in the overseas market it will touch Rs 100 crore mark soon.
"Dilwale" and "Bajirao Mastani" clashed at the box office on 18 December worldwide and both emerged as the winner. While "Dilwale" became one of the biggest grossers overseas, "Bajirao Mastani" worked well at the domestic box office.
