Ranveer Singh's latest outing Simmba, which released on December 28, is unstoppable at the box office quite literally. The film has fared so well that it has already become Ranveer's second highest grossing film since his acting debut. Padmaavat, which released in January last year, still remains his highest grossing film ever. Directed by Rohit Shetty and co-starring Sara Ali Khan, the cop drama opened to mixed reviews from the critics but that has hardly affected the film's fate at the ticket windows. We say so because Simmba is in its second week and the film has already collected Rs 190.64 crore at the Indian box office. Now that's super impressive, right?

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to microblogging site Twitter and revealed the updated figures saying, "#Simmba refuses to slow down... Packs a solid punch in Weekend 2... Nears ₹ 200 cr mark... Emerges THIRD HIGHEST GROSSER of 2018, after #Sanju and #Padmaavat... [Week 2] Fri 9.02 cr, Sat 13.32 cr, Sun 17.49 cr. Total: ₹ 190.64 cr. India biz."
Adarsh also tweeted, "#Simmba biz at a glance...Week 1: ₹ 150.81 cr...Weekend 2: ₹ 39.83 cr...Total: ₹ 190.64 cr. India biz. #Simmba benchmarks...Crossed ₹ 50 cr: Day 3, ₹ 100 cr: Day 5, ₹ 150 cr: Day 7, ₹ 175 cr: Day 10. India biz."

Since Ranveer and Sara's film has continued to get cash registers ringing, its pretty evident that Simmba will enter the coveted Rs 200 crore club sooner than later. But that's not all. The masala entertainer could very well surpass the lifetime collections of Kick and Ek Tha Tiger as well in the coming weeks. Well, if that happens then it would be safe to say that 2018 truly belonged to Ranveer Singh.
