No other heroine has had such an elusive wait for return to the 100 crore club. That, when Kareena had one of the fastest march towards the club with four quick-fire centuries in an almost back-to-back manner. This isn't all as she was also a major contributing member to the 200 crore club, what with her 3 IDIOTS starting it all when it came to Bollywood hitting double centuries.
Well, her TALAASH when it comes to a 100 crore success is all set to be over now, what with SINGHAM RETURNS taking a bumper opening all over and crossing the 30 crore mark with ease on Day One itself.
It hasn't come as a surprise for her or her fans though. All through the run to the film's release, industry and trade was almost certain that SINGHAM RETURNS, that also brings Kareena back with her GOLMAAL 3 team of Ajay Devgn and Rohit Shetty, albeit in an altogether different avatar, stage and setting, would have a bumper opening. After all, SINGHAM was a 100 crore success and now the sequel has come with just the right hype. Okay, so the songs were nothing to write home about but with a release over the weekend which spans across four full days, the balance tilts a lot in the favor of the film; and in the process her.
CHECK OUT: Will SINGHAM RETURNS be Ajay Devgn's highest grosser?
Kareena has been heard as saying that it is either the best script or the best set up for her. It is apparent that SINGHAM RETURNS is one of the best set ups indeed in 2014. With big moolah coming in now, her decision to do a film which allowed her to have some fun instead of stepping into yet another hardcore performance oriented avatar, a la HEROINE, has indeed paid off.
Says Kareena, “I knew what was there to be done in SINGHAM RETURNS. I trusted Rohit’s conviction that he would need me only if I had something to add on to the film. He told me after SATYAGRAHA that ‘performance waale roles bahaut ho gaye, now come and do a hardcore entertainer’. I am glad I took that call and the results are there to be seen.”
Yes, indeed. With SINGHAM RETURNS all set to hit a century, Kareena is close to getting back on top of the 100 crore club with her fifth century in the making after 3 IDIOTS, GOLMAAL 3, BODYGUARD and RA.ONE.
