Simmba box office collection Day 11: Ranveer Singh's film Simmba has emerged as the third highest grosser of 2018 after Ranbir Kapoor's Sanju and Padmaavat.
Simmba box office collection: With the huge success of Simmba, Rohit Shetty has proved that he is the king of box office. The film, which crossed the Rs 100-crore mark within a few days of its release, is now galloping towards the Rs 200-crore club, thus making it the biggest hit of Ranveer Singh’s career. An official remake of Telugu film Temper, Simmba has won praises from critics and fans alike. Simmba has earned Rs 6.16 crore on Monday, thus taking the total to Rs 196.8 crore.
While Simmba has set off fireworks at the global box-office, it has wreaked havoc on its home turf as well. At the domestic box-office, the film, also starring Sara Ali Khan and Sonu Sood in important roles, has earned over Rs 196 crore, which announces the birth of a new-age superstar in Ranveer Singh. The film, in all likelihood, is expected to cross the Rs 200 crore-mark today to become the quirky actor’s second film in the prestigious club.
