Little did we know that this film will end up being an all time
blockbuster by earning over Rs 150 crores, as per information from
Indian Box Office.
Kangana Ranaut has paved the way to become the only female star
in the Top-10 list of all time highest grossing films, which is
otherwise dominated by the three Khans and Hrithik Roshan.
"So far, only Aamir Khan (3 Idiots, Dhoom 3), Salman Khan (Kick,
Ek Tha Tiger, Dabangg 2), Shahrukh Khan (Chennai Express, Happy New
Year) and Hrithik Roshan (Krrish 3, Bang Bang) have managed to
surpass the Rs 150 crore mark. Each of these has been a male
hero-centric film. Not only has Kangna made an entry into the Rs
150 crore club, she is also the lone woman standing in the list
which is dominated by superstars who have been in the business of
films for much longer than her," informs a trade source.
Tanu Weds Manu was a start for Kangana, leading to her success
in Queen and finally resulting in the success of her super-hit
sequel Tanu Weds Manu Returns. The film's success has generated
huge revenue for the producers Eros and Aanand L. Rai.
When asked about big star-packages coming her way, Kangana said,
"Well, Tanu Weds Manu Returns deserves every bit of this success.
Now big makers are proposing mega budget projects to me."
This victory has emerged as a new phase in Bollywood making the actress stand shoulder to shoulder with male actors. Speaking about this Kangana says, "I feel truly self sufficient. I am in a league of my own, independent of big stars and big production houses."
