The movie, featuring Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif, released on 2,500 screens on the auspicious occasion of Diwali, Nov 13.
Made at a budget of Rs.50 crore, the film has surpassed the Rs.100 crore mark in the Indian market, even though it had crossed the milestone figure in terms of worldwide collections within six days of hitting the screens.
Despite mixed reviews from all quarters, it had grossed over Rs.120 crore from all over the world in six days, and at the Indian box office, the movie had managed to get Rs.80.73 crore.
The figures only seem to be on a rise.
The buzz for the film was immense, given the fact that it is Chopra’s last directorial, a project he took up eight years after helming “Veer-Zaara”. It has also brought back Shah Rukh in his classic romantic avatar, which his female fans love him for. – IANS
