Gully Boy, on the other hand, maintained its strong hold despite facing tough competition with Total Dhamaal and showed a considerable growth on its second Saturday and Sunday. The Zoya Akhtar directorial has collected Rs 118.35 crore till date.
"#GullyBoy consolidates its position on [second] Sat and Sun... Its biz is now dependent on metros/premium multiplexes, which should help it cross ₹ 125 cr in next few days... [Week 2] Fri 3.90 cr, Sat 7.05 cr, Sun 7.10 cr. Total: ₹ 118.35 cr. India biz," Taran Adarsh tweeted.
