New Delhi: Deepika Padukone must be riding high on the success of her flicks this year which have entered the 100 cr club and she couldn't ask for more as her latest release ‘Chennai Express' is the newest king of the Rs 200 crore surpassing ‘3 idiots'.
But what is rather interesting is Deepika being the first actress whose flicks has grossed a total of over Rs 500 crore at box office in a single year.
Starring with Abbas-Mustan's ‘Race 2', Deepika glamourised in her role alongside the entire star cast and the flick grossed Rs100.45 cr.
Ayan Mukerji's ‘Yeh jawaani hai deewani' took even lesser time to hit the ton. The sweet Naina's chemistry with bunny was loved all over and the flick minted Rs 100 crore within first week of its release and had a grand total of Rs 188.57 crore.
Her latest release ‘Chennai Express' has garnered 211.03 crore, shattering all the previous box office record.
The total collection of the three flicks is 500.05 crore and the leading Deepika Padukone stands tall to claim this title of ‘Rs 500 crore actress'
The actress also has Sanjay Leela Bhansali's ‘Ram Leela' to hit later this year and if we look at her flicks' turnover record it won't be surprising if she proves lucky again.
Also it may be noted that Deepika is the first actress to hit a hat-trick at box office with Rs 100 cr collection of all her flicks this year.
Although among actresses, it's a tie between Asin, Kareena Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha, whose 4-4 flicks each have made it to 100cr club. But none of these actresses hit the hat-trick in single year while Deepika Padukone has achieved the unthinkable.
