Action drama "Singham Returns" box office collection is racing fast towards the ₹100 crore mark in India, but at worldwide box office the film has already achieved that mark.
The film featuring Ajay Devgn and Kareena Kapoor Khan in lead roles was released on Independence Day in more than 3600 screens in India and around 400 screens overseas.
In India, the film has so far accumulated ₹92.47 crore and is expected to cross the ₹100 crore mark by Tuesday.
On Monday, due to Janmashtami holiday in several states, the film fared well. Rohit Shetty's directorial film earned ₹14.78 crore on fourth day to take its nett earnings to ₹92 crore.
Here is the four day breakup of the film as provided by trade analyst Taran Adarsh: Friday ₹32.09 crore, Saturday ₹21.05 crore, Sunday ₹24.55 crore and Monday ₹14.78 crore.
The fourth day's income of "Singham Returns" is similar to Salman Khan's "Kick" (₹14 crore). But "Kick" fared well on Sunday and hence the four day total of Khan's film is better than "Singham Returns".
Nonetheless, the film is ready to beat its prequel film "Singham" lifetime collection record of ₹100.30 crore.
