We had said in February itself that the next probable success of 2017, after Akshay's JOLLY LLB 2, was likely to be the Varun-Alia venture, BADRINATH KI DULHANIA. While that was confirmed last Saturday itself, the point of interest was whether it would be the first super hit of the year!
BADRINATH KI DULHANIA MOVIE STILLS
Well, that has now been confirmed as the film crossed the 90 crore mark from India (and still counting), at the end of it's second weekend. Given the all inclusive 55 crore cost, without a shred of doubt BADRINATH KI DULHANIA is now the first super hit of 2017.
Not only that, BADRINATH KI DULHANIA is also on an inspired overseas run, and just as example the film has grossed $1,587,000 (estimated) from the US, at the end of the third weekend (17-19 March).
As a concluding remark, it is only the Hollywood release, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, which is posing some sort of a challenge to BADRINATH KI DULHANIA, if one may say so!
