Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan starrer Simmba is witnessing its dream run ever since it hit the screens on December 27. After crashing the box office on its opening day itself, Rohit Shetty directorial Simmba is breaking all the records even after competition from the new films. Just released Uri is also doing good at the box office but it hasn't stopped Simmba from earning good numbers. The film has already earned 227.71 crores and has surpassed the lifetime business of Rohit Shetty's another film Chennai Express that starred Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone.
Revealing the latest numbers, Taran Adarsh wrote, "#Simmba crosses *lifetime biz* of #ChennaiExpress and emerges Rohit Shetty’s highest grosser... [Week 3] Fri 2.60 cr, Sat 4.51 cr, Sun 5.30 cr, Mon 2.86 cr. Total: ₹ 227.71 cr. India biz. BLOCKBUSTER."
On the other hand, Vicky Kaushal starrer Uri: The Surgical Strike has managed to garner Rs 46.24 crores in just four days. Taran Adarsh wrote, "#UriTheSurgicalStrike is unshakable... Excellent on Day 4... Higher than Day 1... Will cross ₹ 50 cr today... Trending better than #Raazi, #Stree and #BadhaaiHo... Fri 8.20 cr, Sat 12.43 cr, Sun 15.10 cr, Mon 10.51 cr. Total: ₹ 46.24 cr. India biz. #Uri #HowsTheJosh"
Ranveer’s previous biggest hits include his three films with Deepika Padukone and director Sanjay Leela Bhansali - Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram Leela, Bajiraro Mastani and Padmaavat, which made Rs 112 crore, Rs 183 crore and Rs 282 crore in India, respectively.
Shetty has taken his old and safe route for his latest venture Simmba starring Ranveer. Simmba is the louder version of Shetty's last cop drama Singham in which Devgn played the titular role of an honest cop. However, Simmba (Bhalerao Sangram) is nowhere close to (Bajirao) Singham. Simmba is an orphan and had an inclination towards money and power since childhood. Rohit Shetty has given South Indian treatment to the film and when we say this, we aren't talking about action sequence. The flamboyant and over-the-top mannerism of Shetty's lead character seems too much after a point of time. Simmba seems to be screaming for attention with his not-so-amusing one-liners. Having said that, Ranveer has aptly portrayed the characters, because just like Simmba, our Ranveer is always high on energy. Initially, Simmba is not portrayed as a hero, hence, to make him likable, Rohit Shetty has played with one-liners and Ranveer's machoism. There are Marathi dialogues but it is not difficult to get the gist of the conversation.
