Ranveer Singh's Simmba (Simba) has been making a good collection at the worldwide box office even on the weekdays and become the fifth highest grossing Bollywood film of 2018 in six days.
Having stormed the domestic market for five days, the Rohit Shetty-directed movie witnessed around 50 per cent drop in its collection on the sixth day. But its business is bigger than that of other big-ticket films of the year.
Simmba collected Rs 14.49 crore net at the India box office on its sixth day and its total has reached Rs 139.03 crore net. Its total gross business stands at Rs 178.24 crore.
Taran Adarsh tweeted the day-wise collection of Simmba in India, "#Simmba is a SMASH HIT... Continues to collect in double digits, even after New Year celebrations have ended...

Simmba has fared well in foreign countries too and surpassed Rs 50 crore gross mark at the overseas box office in five days. Like in India, the Ranveer Singh starrer witnessed a drop in its collection in the international markets on Wednesday, but it is better than Monday collection.
Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#Simmba should be close to ₹ 60 cr in Week 1 Overseas... Excellent in USA-Canada, UAE-GCC and Australia in particular... Fri: $ 1.884 mn Sat: $ 1.590 mn Sun: $ 1.492 mn Mon: $ 779k Tue: $ 1.414 mn Wed: $ 694k Total: $ 7.853 mn [₹ 55.06 cr]."
With this, Simmba has collected a total of Rs 233.95 crore gross at the worldwide box office in six days. As per the early estimates, the remake of the Telugu film Temper hasminted Rs 22.60 crore gross in the global market on the seventh day, taking its first week total to Rs 256.55 crore gross.
Simba has beaten the lifetime collection records of Badhaai Ho, Raazi, Pad Man Baaghi 2 and Hichki and emerged as the fifth highest grossing Bollywood film of 2018. Considering its current pace, the movie will land in the third rank, pushing down Thugs of Hindostan, Race 3. It should be seen whether it will be able to beat the records of Sanju and Padmaavat and go to the next spot.
