WEB DESK: Salman Khan starrer ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ (PRDP) has managed to zoom past the Rs 200 crore mark in India, thereby becoming only the second Bollywood film this year to cross the figure, Mid-day reported.
The Hindi version of PRDP brings back the superstar to a family drama film as Prem, and marks Salman’s reunion with director Sooraj Barjatya after 16 years.
A statement from the makers quoted by Mid-day claimed that the film has collected Rs201.52 crore in 14days since its release on November 12.
Centred on royal love, the film also features Sonam Kapoor, Anupam Kher, Swara Bhaskar, Armaan Kohli and Neil Nitin Mukesh.
Salman played dual role in the movie– as an arrogant prince, and another as a jovial peace-making person.
Trade analyst Komal Nahta tweeted: “PRDP becomes the second film to cross 200 crore in 2015. Total all-India net for 14 days (it opened on a Thursday): Rs 201.52 crore!”
Meanwhile, another Salman starrer of the year, ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ managed to cross Rs.300 crore in India. It was a film whose story about a Hindu man taking a mute Pakistani girl back to her country, tugged at the hearts of the audiences.
Produced by Rajshri Productions, the flick was also released in Tamil and Telugu.
