The makers of ‘Ram-Leela’ are rejoicing! This ‘Goliyon Ki Rasleela’ continued its victorious march at the box-office on the second day as well, in fact, after raking in almost Rs. 16 Crores on the first day (Friday), collections remained rock-steady even on the second day, with the film garnering even more than the first day in some territories. Thus, the second day’s (Saturday) collection was approx Rs. 17.25 Crores and so, the gross theatrical revenue from the first two days is almost approx Rs. 33.25 Crores, which is fantastic. What a comeback this has been for Sanjay Leela Bhansali! Directorially speaking, the man was lying low after ‘Guzaarish’ and ‘Ram-Leela’ is the perfect shot-in-the-arm for this talented maker. The icing on the cake is the appreciation that he has received for his musical score in the film, which went a long way in setting the platform for an outstanding initial draw at the box-office. What can one say about Deepika Padukone? Her block-buster streak just goes on and on and on! For Ranveer Singh, ‘Ram-Leela’ might well be that ‘big league ticket’ which he truly deserves.
The film released amidst protests and there was controversy over the film’s title. However, the makers of ‘Ram-Leela’ battled against all odds and even the courts ruled in their favor, which finally paved the way for a smooth release. The rest, as they say, is history!
