Salman Khan's Prem Ratan Dhan Payo had opened to mixed reviews by critics and audience, but that hasn't stopped the movie from minting money at the Box Office.
The Sooraj Barjatya film also starring Sonam Kapoor is continuing to do well both in the international as well as the domestic market.
The film has collected over Rs 305 crores in the domestic market till Monday and Rs 93.7 crores in the overseas market. Trade analyst, Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#PRDP to cross ₹ 400 cr gross worldwide today. India ₹ 207.4 cr till Mon [₹ 305 cr gr] + Oseas $ 14.2 mn [₹ 93.7 cr gr]. Total: ₹ 398.7 cr."
This Diwali blockbuster is the second film of Salman Khan in 2015 to have grossed more than Rs 200 crores, first being Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Salman has become the true Box Office king with his releases easily crossing 200 crores withing no given time.
The release of Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, Tamasha has not affected Prem Ratan Dhan Payo's run at the Box Office and since the movie is so close to minting Rs 400 crores, it would be awesome if PRDP manages to cross the lifetime collections of Shah Rukh Khan starrer Chennai Express which is 422 crores.
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo also starred Anupam Kher, Armaan Kohli, Swara Bhaskar and Neil Nitin Mukesh in pivotal roles. The next big release is Shahrukh Khan's Dilwale and Ranveer Singh's Bajirao Mastani, both of which can mint Rs 100 crores within the first weekend.
