Box office collections over the weeks indicate that collections of SAAWARIYA have now been surpassed even by relatively much smaller JAB WE MET. And JAB WE MET has achieved this feat not just in India but even overseas!
Picture this - While JAB WE MET has already collected more than 28 crores in 6 weeks in India, SAAWARIYA is looking at ending its run by barely touching 25 crores. In overseas as well it is JAB WE MET which has held fort with close to 3.5 crores in UK. On the other hand SAAWARIYA is 1 crore behind with only 2.5 crores in its kitty.
Guess content has clearly done the talking here with 1 film old Imtiaz Ali continuing to make audience rush into theaters to watch his simple yet extremely well told story for weeks in succession!
