The first round of the much talked about Dilwale Vs Bajirao Mastani clash on the box office on Friday has clearly gone in favour of Shah Rukh Khan’s come back film. Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale
was off to a flying start on its opening day, collecting a whopping Rs 21 crore, according to a statement from the film’s producers, Red Chillies Entertainment. In comparison, for all the grandeur it came packed in, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani , starring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, could only register a less-than-impressive start on day one, collecting a mere Rs 12 crore.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#BajiraoMastani Fri ? 12.80 cr [3050 screens]. India biz. Film growing rapidly with strong word of mouth and glowing reviews.”
