MUMBAI: Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures, is still going strong at the box office, leaving behind all other releases in its wake.

Even in its third week, ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ is the clear Box Office winner, standing at a whopping three week total of approximately Rs 963.5 million (Rs 96.35 crores) net. It has yet to cross the coveted Rs 100 crore mark, but will surely get there very soon.

Starring Farhan Akhtar, Sonam Kapoor, Divya Dutta and Prakash Raj, the biopic ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ is well on its way to becoming a box office blockbuster. Other releases like ‘B.A. Pass’ and ‘Rabba Main Kya Karoon’ have been completely washed out due to the omniscience of ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’.

As reported, the film began its journey at the ticketing windows, with fantastic opening day figures in the range of Rs 92.5 million (Rs 9.25 crore net) on Day 1. Collections rose to approximately Rs 320 million (Rs 32 crore net) by end of the first weekend.

The week 1 total for ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ stood at a strong at about Rs 526.6 million (Rs 52.66 crore) net.

Once the tax exemptions were applied, business soared in the second weekend, with cash registers ringing to the tune of Rs 172.5 million (Rs 17.25 crore) net. By the end of the second weekend, ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ had accumulated figures in the range of Rs 739.7 million (Rs 73.97 crore) net.
