Ajay Devgn, Kajol and Saif Ali Khan must be happy to see their recently released movie Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior being unbeatable at box office. The period drama has crossed the 20-crore mark and it’s still in the race of highest grossing movies.
Tanhaji, starring Ajay, Kajol, Saif Ali Khan, and Sharad Kelkar in pivotal roles, was released on January 10. The movie is second highest grossing film of Ajay Devgn after Golmaal Again and the earnings of the movie stand at Rs 202.83 crores and it still continues to score. Film pundits are predicting that the movie is expected to become Devgn’s highest-grossing film.
“#Tanhaji crosses ₹ 200 cr, shows no signs of fatigue… Continues to score, despite reduction of screens/shows + two prominent films hitting the marketplace… Will emerge #AjayDevgn’s highest grossing film today [Sat]… [Week 3] Fri 5.38 cr. Total: ₹ 202.83 cr. #India biz,” said trade analyst Taran Adarsh in his tweet.
Adarsh says that the period drama is highest grosser of Kajol and Saif Ali Khan. Earlier, he had said in one of his tweets that the collections of Tanhaji on day 6 were Rs 16.72 crore, surpassing the film’s earnings on its first, fourth and fifth days and has managed to attract a steady stream of cinema-goers even on weekdays.
“#Tanhaji is NOT OUT… Day 6 is higher than Day 1, 4 and 5… Terrific trending on weekdays indicates the power of solid content… Speeding towards 150 cr… Fri 15.10 cr, Sat 20.57 cr, Sun 26.26 cr, Mon 13.75 cr, Tue 15.28 cr, Wed 16.72 cr. Total: 107.68 cr. #India biz.”
Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior is a historical drama which is based on the Maratha empire’s military leader Tanhaji Malusare. It is directed by filmmaker Om Raut. The film clashed with Deepika Padukone’s Chhapaak. However, the competition between the two movie seems not so tough as Deepika starer is already facing too much controversies.
