We are sure that when Rohit Shetty kickstarted the shooting of Ranveer Singh-Sara Ali Khan starrer Simmba, little did he know that this film is going to become the biggest hit of his career. That’s right and we say this because after three weeks, the film has zoomed past Shah Rukh Khan’s Chennai Express to become Rohit Shetty’s biggest hit. According to Box Office India, Rohit Shetty's cop-action drama has managed to earn over Rs 225 crores at the domestic box office and over Rs 86 crores at the overseas market. Not just this, Simmba has also emerged as Rohit Shetty's highest grossing film in Australia.

Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to announce that Ranveer Singh’s Simmba has beaten Shah Rukh Khan’s Chennai Express to become Rohit Shetty’s biggest hit.

India biz. BLOCKBUSTER.” While the film kickstarted on a roaring note, after three weeks, Simmba is still going strong and has become the top ten highest earning Bollywood films of all time.

At the start of the third weekend, Simmba earned Rs 2.60 crores, Rs 4.51 crores and Rs 5.30 crores on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, respectively, and zoomed past Rs 350 crores target at the global box office in 16 days of its release.

Talking about Simmba, it is Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and Rohit Shetty’s company’s biggest scoring Bollywood film till date and Simmba is Rohit Shetty’s eight film to cross the Rs 100 crore mark at the box office.

He is my favourite! Very happy for him!

Happy for Ranveer! He is favourite of the lot..

IDK why people keep bringing up SRK.... This guy films have not met any expectations for the last decade or more. Besides CE everything was under expectations and then theres another big gap prior to CE. Anyone can literally clean bowl him at the box office. Chase the numbers set by Salman and Aamir. SRK is getting owned and he has to shuffle his dates for release dates vs the new breed. Its not the other way around.

The audience has spoken!

Ranveer Singh is an amazing actor!

Get away khans.
