Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi starring Bollywood actors Alia Bhatt, Vijay Raaz, Seema Pahwa, Ajay Devgn, Shantanu Maheshwari and others is now breaking records!
The film was released on February 25, 2022, and has been gradually garnering attention and acclaim. On Friday, the Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed film crossed the Rs 100 crore milestone at the global box office after a week in theatres.
The film has earned 108.3 crores worldwide till Friday, March 4. The film is now expected to do even better after pandemic protocols were relaxed, and the state governments have allowed 100% occupancy in theatres in Maharashtra and New Delhi.
The film’s banner, Bhansali Productions, on Friday shared the official figures along with the film’s poster on their social media platforms, and wrote, “Itna Saara Pyaar dene ke liye THEEEENK YOUUUU ?.”
The production house also released a special trailer of the movie to thank the audience.
Applauding Gangubai Kathiawadi’s performance at the box office, trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the film’s weekly performance report card. He tweeted, “WEEK 1 BIZ: TOP 3 FILMS [post pandemic times]… 1. #Sooryavanshi: ₹ 120.66 cr #Diwali 2. #83TheFilm: ₹ 71.87 cr [Day 6 and 7 without #Delhi biz] #Christmas 3. #GangubaiKathiawadi: ₹ 68.93 cr #NonHoliday Note: Nett BOC. #Hindi films. #India biz.”
Despite Gangubai Kathiawadi opening on a non-festival weekend, it has collected Rs 68.93 crore in its first week. However, with Robert Pattinson-starrer The Batman and Amitabh Bachchan’s Jhund hitting screens yesterday, the second week for Gangubai Kathiawadi is going to be a crucial one.
