Barfi touches 100 crore: Ranbir's late birthday present
2012 could be Anurag Basu's best year yet. His Barfi has been chosen for the Oscars in the foreign film category from India officially. Soon after this decision was made, Barfi has recently touched the 100 crore mark at the box office collections.
This also occurs only a few days after Barfi, Ranbir Kapoor, celebrated his birthday entering into the Trigenerian life. This could be considered his birthday present, a present that has arrived a few days late.
Shot with a 30 crore budget, the movie was released on September 14 with the story being based on a never before triangle love story featuring Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D Cruz.
"Ranbir Kapoor joins the much-famed Rs 100 crore club today (Tuesday) with 'Barfi!' and this is Priyanka Chopra's second ton this year, after 'Agneepath'," tweeted trade analyst Taran Adarsh
'Housefull 2', 'Rowdy Rathore', 'Bol Bachchan' and 'Ek Tha Tiger' earlier this year had made it beyond 100 crores in the theaters.
"The film is Ranbir Kapoor's biggest hit in overseas... total after 3rd Weekend UK 622,039 pounds (Rs 5.30 cr) ... USA $2,462,008 (Rs12.89 cr)," Taran further tweeted.
'Barfi!' is the addition to the 100 crore club from UTV motion pictures which had only 'Rowdy Rathore' in the club.
Before the movie released Anurag said, "I don't know about making Rs 100 crore. But I feel it is more difficult to touch people's heart. From my film, I only want to touch hundreds or thousands of hearts and that's all that matters to me. Collection is not important for me”.
