RAAJNEETI has touched the 90 crore mark just from India, hence making it third in the list of all time biggest grossers in the history of Indian cinema. After 3 IDIOTS (which crossed 200 crores) and GHAJINI (100 crores plus), RAAJNEETI is the only film to have touched the 90 crore mark (in four weeks) and is still counting.
Of course inflation needs to be taken in account and that would mean many a big hits like GADAR, HUM AAPKE HAIN KAUN and SHOLAY are any day bigger hits. However, if one looks at just the net figures and does a relative comparison, RAAJNEETI is in an enviable position. Naturally Arjun Rampal, who other than Ranbir Kapoor has gained most from the film, is ecstatic.
"To know that your film has attained a classic status and is boasting of collections next only to 3 IDIOTS and GHAJINI is something that doesn't happen every year", says Arjun who is maintaining his success record year after year, "The way RAAJNEETI has sustained at the box office for full four weeks after an astonishing start is mind blowing."
The actor, who is gearing up for the release of WE ARE FAMILY now, goes on to add, "I am extremely happy. Really it is all so overwhelming and if my words seem to be repeating, then excuse me for that because that is due to the enthralled state that I am currently in."
