Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha, who is looking forward to the grand release of her upcoming film "Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaraa" (OUATIMD) took a dig at Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone starrer "Chennai Express", stating that she does not think ₹100 crore mark is a big deal.
Director Rohit Shetty's action comedy grossed ₹100 crore in just three days after its release, becoming the fastest film to cross the century mark. But this does not seem to impress the "Dabangg" girl.
"Every film is special and comes with a certain destiny. No two films can be compared. We are concentrating on our film and are looking for a great business irrespective of whether Chennai Express does a 100 crore business or turns out to be a complete dud. So, it makes no difference to our film," she said, according to Daily Bhaskar.
Referring to the box office collections of "Chennai Express" Sonakshi said, "Today, 100 crore is achieved in no time. Considering the number of theatres and prints pan India, new benchmarks are made each time a new film is released. People look beyond 100 crore say 200, 300 so on so forth."
"OUATIMD", which also stars Akshay Kumar and Imran Khan, will hit theatres on 15 August. The film is a sequel to "Once Upon A Time In Mumbai" which featured Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi and Kangna Ranaut in lead roles.
The plot of "OUATIMD" centres on a triangle love story between Akshay, Imran and Sonakshi. Akshay plays the role of reigning don Shoaib. The film also features Sonali Bendre in a pivotal role.
