Zoya Akhtar's much-appreciated film Gully Boy is faring pretty decently at the ticket windows in its second week. Starring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in the lead, the rap drama entered the Rs 100 crore club last week and since then has been holding up well at the box office. Though Indra Kumar's Total Dhamaal hit the screens last Friday, it hasn't really affected the business of Gully Boy, especially in the multiplexes. While Ranveer starrer will continue to draw the audience in India, the film has already crossed Rs 200 crore mark at the worldwide box.

Fim trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to microblogging site Twitter a while back and announced the good news. He wrote, "#GullyBoy is steady at premium multiplexes/select metros... Will cross ₹ 125 cr today [Wed]... [Week 2] Fri 3.90 cr, Sat 7.05 cr, Sun 7.10 cr, Mon 2.45 cr, Tue 2.30 cr. Total: ₹ 123.10 cr. India biz... Crosses ₹ 200 cr *worldwide* [Gross BOC]... HIT, due to the moderate costs."
Further, a report in Boxofficeindia.com stated, "The film has done excellent business in North America with collections close to $4.5 million in 12 days. This is probably the best circuit for the film across the World. Although Mumbai and Pune are just as good as North America, the Mumbai circuit has Gujarat and other centers of Maharashtra as a part of it so the Mumbai circuit number as a whole does not look as impressive as North America."

In fact, if Gully Boy sustains itself at the worldwide box office then it could become one of the top 10 highest grossing films in the US and Canada. For now, Gully Boy is not just enjoying a good run at the BO but also all the praise and attention coming its way from all quarters.
