'Simmba' has now become the highest grossing film of Rohit Shetty's career as it has now amassed Rs 227.71 crore in India itself. With these incredible figures, it has crossed the lifetime collections of Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone starrer 'Chennai Express' which earned around Rs 227 crore in the country. Not only that but even with two new release 'Uri: The Surgical Strike' and 'The Accidental Prime Minister' dominating most of the screens, the Ranveer Singh starrer earned Rs 2.86 on the last Monday. Considering how many weeks it has already run in cinema halls, this is quite incredible. 

With such profitable collections, it has become another feather in the cap for Rohit Shetty, who seems to have aced making commercial entertainers as every film of his is becoming a blockbuster over the last few years. Other than 'Simmba', the filmmaker is also looking to make another cop film titled as 'Sooryavanshi', which will star Akshay Kumar.
