Alia Bhatt starrer movie Raazi surprises everyone by earning more than Rs. 200 crore worldwide. Directed by Meghna Gulzar the movie earned around Rs. 100 country in the Indian market and has now crossed the bar of 200 internationally.
The year 2018 so far has been a good one for Bollywood movies. Padmaavat, Pad Man, Veere Di Wedding, Hichki and many more received worldwide attention. More and more movies are crossing the benchmark of Rs. 100 Crore at the box office. The fact that remains and should be taken into consideration is almost every one them is somehow women-centric and have lead roles as a female. The movies either talk about their problems or their power!
The 100 crore club is an old benchmark now. With goodwill of renowned actors, it is easy for movies to cross 100 crores. Even if the storyline, plot, acting, graphics are average, the film can become popular just because of the fan following film stars have today. The new challenge for Bollywood movies is to go beyond this and enter the club of 200 and 300. The trend was started when Rajkumar Hirani’s movie 3 Idiots featuring Amir Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sharman Joshi and R. Madhavan earned Rs 202.47 crore in 70 days.
Raazi has succeeded in crossing the milestone. The news was shared by Karan Johar through his official Twitter handle where he mentioned its global box office collection. He tweeted, “A PROUD FILM!!! 207 crores GROSS WORLDWIDE!”. Alia’s movie Raazi is now the first film in the last five years to have a female in the lead role and earn more than Rs. 100 crore. In the Indian market, it has earned Rs 122.07 crore.
