‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ has continued its dream ride at the box office and is simply unstoppable. After an imaginable first fortnight, it had a very good third week as well with a fantastic Rs. 20 crore more coming in.
These are superb by all means and now match some of the biggest films of all times. With Rs. 137 crore in its kitty already, the film is now in serious contention to hit the Rs. 150 crore mark. Now that would be astonishing by all means as only nine films have managed this feat in the industry of Bollywood and with such great numbers, the Aanand L. Rai directed film would find its place in Top-10 grossers of all times.
For producers Eros, the film is now their biggest grosser ever in India. They have indeed won a lottery with this film which was low on budget, high on concept and excellent in execution!
While the film has now brought Aanand L. Rai firmly and strongly in the list of most-sought filmmakers in the country today, Kangana Ranaut has seen her career graph zoom like never before. With ‘Katti Batti’ has her next release, she is on a roll. As for Madhavan, his next – ‘Saala Khadoos’ – which is produced by Rajkumar Hirani, is being looked at with renewed interest.
