Dilwale’s star power made it gather Rs.65.09 at the first weekend!

One of the biggest clashes of Bollywood was witnessed this Friday when Shahrukh Khan's ‘Dilwale’ went head to head with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's ‘Bajirao Mastani’, starring Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and Ranveer Singh!

The first weekend is over and the verdict is out. While both films have managed to do decent business at the box office, one has expectedly taken the lead and that is none other than ‘Dilwale’!

With the box office result, we now know that SRK's 'Dilwale' is sure shot winner which has collected Rs. 65.09 crore in the first weekend of its release.

 

Dilwale’s star power made it gather Rs.65.09 at the first weekend!

 

What favoured the film the most is its star power, and we are not surprised with the results! Having the magical pairing of SRK-Kajol and Varun Dhawan in tow, Dilwale could have never gone wrong!

Although ‘Dilwale’ received average to negative reviews by most critics, the film managed to put up a great show at the ticket counters!

It is a flick that caters to the family audience and received “thumbs up” from them. Despite the huge backlash it is facing in some key centres, the film managed to cross the Rs 20 crore mark consistently. While it netted around Rs 21 crore on its first day, it added another Rs 20.09 crore on Saturday. The film had a huge growth on Sunday and collected around Rs 24 crore on Sunday. With that, the opening weekend collection stands at Rs 65.09 crore, which is more than good for the film. But unlike other big films, this one couldn't perform that well, courtesy the division of screens and the big clash that ensued. Nevertheless, ‘Dilwale’ is already in safe waters, whereas ‘Bajirao Mastani’ will now have to buckle up!

  • You fall in love and vow to spend the rest of your life with each other. Such is the beauty of a marriage. The end, however, is not always as beautiful. Blame it on fame, gorgeous looks or the fact that cupid's arrows strike again and again in the glamour world, but Bollywood couples have to face the ugly truth of infidelity, divorces, and break-ups ever so often.
  • In Bollywood, there was a time, when supporting actors did not receive the appreciation they do now. They were looked at as mere pawns to make the lead look good. But times have changed, and talented artists have taken these so called side roles, and evolved them into the backbone of the films. They are now taking the limelight, and sometimes even overshadow the leads.
  • Unlike popular belief, there have been a large number of celebrities who broke the ‘Career is finished after marriage’ taboo and came out shining like true stars only after they got married. Some turned out to be the major superstars of the country, whereas some struggled to leave an impact on the industry, but the one thing that all of them have in common is that they were married before they set their foot on the silver screen.
  • Whenever a celebrity does something whether good or bad, extraordinary or mundane, the news always manages to make its way to the headlines. The frenzy around Indian celebrities who became politicians is therefore justified. And when the theme is women-centric, it’s even better.
  • We all know actors who are also singers seem to be the latest trend in B-town. And you must be aware there are quite a few of them, but we have news for you! First, this trend is not new-found and secondly there are many celebrities who possess this talent. Shocked aren’t you?
  • Having a legal notice attached to one’s image is not good for any individual, but when you are a star, it is even worse, as every star has a brand name to maintain and landing up in trouble due to such unforeseen circumstances is nothing short of a controversy! Here is a list of top Bollywood stars who went to jail.
