Ajay Devgn’s Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior has turned out to be phenomenon at the box office. In a rare feat in recent times, the period action has managed to sustain itself for 50 days at the ticket windows and is also gearing up to complete two months. The Om Raut directorial recently completed its eighth week, and earned Rs 1 crore, becoming only the fourth film ever to achieve this feat.
As per a report on a trade portal, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior minted Rs 1.25 crore in its eighth week. Only three films before the period drama has been able to earn over a crore, Baahubali: The Conclusion, Uri: The Surgical Strike and Padmaavat, the report claimed.
#Tanhaji crosses ₹ 275 cr... Has ample stamina, despite new films invading the marketplace week after week + limited screens and shows... [Week 7] Fri 52 lakhs, Sat 63 lakhs, Sun 74 lakhs. Total: ₹ 276.90 cr. #India biz.— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) February 24, 2020
While Tanhaji recently crossed the Rs 275-crore-mark, the interesting bit is that even Rs 300 crore-hits like Dangal, Sanju, Tiger Zinda Hai and War were not able to put in a figure like this in the respective eighth weeks.
The collection showed that the movie is still finding interest from the moviegoers. With Maharashtra reported to have contributed major chunk of the collections, it seems people are still keen to watch the story of the 17th century Kondhana Fort war between Tanaji Malusare and Uday Bhan, based in their state.
Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior is Ajay Devgn’s biggest hit of all-time. The movie also stars Saif Ali Khan, Kajol, Neha Sharma, Sharad Kelkar, among others. Recently, Rishi Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan had praised the film.
