Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram Leela has collected around 51-52 crore in its first weekend at the box office. The film was outstanding at multiplexes, single screen business picked up towards the end of the weekend too.
The opening weekend business is the 4th highest for 2013 – after Chennai Express, Krrish 3 and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. Business through the weekend was around the same level as Deepika Padukone’s first release of 2013 – Race 2.
Ram Leela is almost certain to go past the 100 crore mark. If the film holds up well today (Monday), it could go on to be a much bigger grosser.
2013 has been a terrific year for Deepika, all her releases have been huge grossers. Ranveer Singh’s performance has received tremendous appreciation and he has comeback strongly after two duds in Ladies vs Ricky Bahl and Lootera. And finally, Sanjay Leela Bhansali too has silenced his critics who wrote him off after two box office failures Saawariya and Guzaarish.
