New Delhi: Ranveer Singh's masala flick 'Simmba' has emerged as the biggest hit of his career. The film, directed by Rohit Shetty, is one of the top-grossing films of 2018 and easily sailed into 200 crore club. And even two weeks after the release, the film continues to have a blockbuster run at the ticket window.
However, the film's business has been affected by multiple new releases — 'Uri: The Surgical Strike' and 'The Accidental Prime Minister'. And despite that it posted a decent collection figure on Friday, the numbers were surprisingly low in comparison to previous days. The screen count of the film has also been reduced after new films arrived in theatres.
After a 15-day run at the Box Office, 'Simmba' stands with the net collections of Rs 215 crore. The film minted Rs 2.60 crore on Friday.
Noted film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and shared the latest collections. He wrote, "#Simmba gets affected by multiple new releases... Despite reduction in screen count, posts a healthy number on third Fri... Third Sat and third Sun should again witness growth... [Week 3] Fri 2.60 cr. Total: ₹ 215.03 cr. India biz."
