Zoya Akhtar's directorial venture Gully Boy has been in theatres for three weeks and so far the film has performed really well at the box office especially in Mumbai for obvious reasons. The film, starring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in the lead, arrived in cinema halls on Valentine's Day and took a massive opening after garnering rave reviews from all quarters. On day 1, Gully Boy broke the record of Padmaavat as it ended up minting Rs 19.40 crore. From there on, Gully Boy continued its good run at the ticket windows and soon entered the Rs 100 crore club in India.

Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to microblogging site Twitter a while back and revealed the updated figures. He wrote, "#GullyBoy benefitted from the partial holiday [#Mahashivratri] on Mon... Biz on [third] Mon, therefore, was slightly higher than [third] Fri... Eyes ₹ 140 cr *lifetime biz*... [Week 3] Fri 1.18 cr, Sat 2.10 cr, Sun 2.55 cr, Mon 1.28 cr. Total: ₹ 134.21 cr. India biz."
Apart from doing well in India, Ranveer and Alia's film also done good business at the overseas box office. Talking about the same, Adarsh tweeted, "#GullyBoy nears $ 10 mn in the international markets... USA+Canada have contributed more than 50% of revenue [$ 4.94 mn]... Total after Weekend 3: $ 9.6 mn [₹ 68.07 cr]...USA+Canada: $ 4.944 mn, UAE+GCC: $ 1.828 mn, UK: £ 588k, Australia: A$ 892k #Overseas."

Interestingly, Gully Boy is Alia's highest grossing film to date. The musical drama surpassed the lifetime collection of Raazi just a few days back to become Ms Bhatt's most successful film at the box office. While the film is nearing its theatrical run, it would be amazing if it reached the Rs 150 crore mark before going out of cinema halls. Though it seems unlikely, let's wait and watch rather than jump to any conclusion.
