Vicky Kaushal’s Uri: The Surgical Strike is unstoppable at the box office. The film has not only impressed one and all courtesy its fantastic content, but it is raking in the moolah too! Even in its fourth week, on day 23, Uri continued to its magnificent run at the box office. The Vicky Kaushal-starrer raked in Rs 6.35 crore at the ticket window, to take its overall tally to Rs 180.82 crore. Apart from collecting such a fantastic amount, the movie has even demolished its competition. Yes, it has outperformed newer releases like Sonam K Ahuja’s Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga and Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi!

On Saturday (January 02), Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga saw a jump and collected Rs 5.25 crore. Similarly, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi earned Rs 4.65 crore at the box office. This is much lesser than what Uri: The Surgical Strike has managed to rake in! The fact that it has lesser number of screens and is in its fourth week and still is outperforming the other two is a huge deal! What do you guys have to say about this latest development? Share with us your thoughts in the comments section below!

In the meantime, all the three movies have been getting thumbs up from the audience. But the popularity if Uri: The Surgical Strike is at another level. The movie is being mentioned in public speeches, in interviews, even in the Budget speech in the parliament. Clearly, it is a revolutionary film and we are extremely proud of it. Made on a budget of Rs 25 crore, Uri has earned more than Rs 180 crore at the domestic box office. Clearly, it is going to be one of the most profitable films of the year!

Ajay Devgn has been in the film industry for over two decades and even today he is as entertaining as he was when he started his journey back in 1991. However, in the past few years, the talented actor has established himself as a bankable star. He is someone who can easily carry a film on his shoulders and get cash registers ringing. No wonder, he is one the busiest actors in Bollywood today. From working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali to teaming up with Rohit Shetty, Devgn has worked with various filmmakers and has also proved his versatility as an actor. In a nutshell, he is a complete package.

In fact, Ajay’s fan base has also increased lately because of the projects that he has been doing. His latest release Total Dhamaal arrived in the theatres yesterday, February 22, and got off to a good start. The comic caper, which co-stars Madhuri Dixit Nene, Anil Kapoor, Riteish Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi and few others, ended up earning Rs 16. 50 crore on day 1 which we think is mighty impressive.

While we are sure Total Dhamaal will continue to draw the audience at the cinema halls, over the years Ajay have delivered many blockbusters. In fact, Golmaal Again, which came out in 2017, is his highest grosser in India till date. Apart from Golmaal Again, check out how his last 10 films did at the box office and you’ll know why Ajay is considered a force to reckon with in Bollywood.

Coming back to Total Dhamaal, it’s the third film in the successful Dhamaal franchise directed by Indra Kumar. And next, Ajay will be seen in the historical drama Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior. Directed by Om Raut, the film has already gone on floors and also stars Sanjay Dutt, Saif Ali Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Kajol in pivotal roles. The film is scheduled to release this year on November 22. So are you guys excited for Ajay’s next? Tell us in the comments section below.
