Sujosh Ghosh's latest directorial venture Badla is currently dominating the Indian box office. The crime thriller, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu in the lead, has been minting money non-stop since day 1. Considering that two powerhouse performers have come together for the film, its not surprising that the audiences are thronging the theatres to watch their latest offering. Badla released on March 8 and not only opened to rave reviews but also took a good opening at the ticket windows after a slow start. And now Big B and Taapsee starrer is all set to surpass the lifetime collection of Pink, which was their first film together. Badla Box Office Collection Day 10: Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu Starrer Mints More Money Than Captain Marvel Over the Weekend, Grosses Rs 66.90 Crore.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to the microblogging site Twitter a while back and announced the good news. He wrote, "#Badla is dominating the marketplace... Refuses to slow down on weekdays... Will cross *lifetime biz* of #Pink in Week 2 itself... [Week 2] Fri 4.05 cr, Sat 6.70 cr, Sun 8.22 cr, Mon 2.80 cr. Total: ₹ 59.77 cr. India biz. Gross BOC: ₹ 70.52 cr."
Another good news for team Badla is that the crime thriller is doing equally good business abroad. Talking about the overseas collection, Adarsh tweeted last night, "#Badla is super-strong in the international arena... Total after Weekend 2: $ 3.700 mn [₹ 25.38 cr]... Few territories yet to report... USA+Canada: $ 1.32 mn, UAE+GCC: $ 1.45 mn, Australia: $ 224k, UK: $ 213k, RoW: $ 493k #Overseas." Badla Box Office Collection Day 9: Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu Starrer is a HIT, Grosses Rs 57.40 Crore.
With two back-to-back hits, Senior Bachchan and Taapsee's jodi has proved that small budget movies that are high on content can also get cash registers ringing big time. Badla, which is produced by Shah Rukh Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment, also features Amrita Singh, Malayalam actor Tony Luke, Manav Kaul and Tanveer Ghani in important roles.
