Simmba box office collection day 3: Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan starrer Simmba, directed by Rohit Shetty continues to roar on the box-office amid no competition. The film had opened to great numbers on Friday, handing Ranveer Singh his highest ever first day collection (Rs 20.72 crore) and has picked up over the weekend as good reviews continued to come in. The action-drama-comedy entertainer earned around Rs 30 crore on Sunday, taking its overall collection to around Rs 75 crore in the opening weekend.
At this rate, the film is set to enter the Rs 100 crore club within its first week. "#Simmba Crossed ₹ 30 cr nett mark on Sunday. First Weekend - ₹ 75 cr nett approx, all set to enter 100 cr by Tuesday," Film Trade analyst and critic, Sumit Kadel tweeted on Monday morning.
The film has broken the record of Tiger Shroff starrer Baaghi 2 which had earned Rs 73.10 crore in its opening weekend. This is despite the fact that Baaghi 2 had a bigger opening by raking in Rs 25.10 crore on day 1.

If Simmba manages to hold on to its audience for Monday and Tuesday, it should easily go past the entire first week collections of Baaghi 2 [Rs. 112.85 crore] in six days itself. This would also allow Ranveer starrer to have a good second weekend and continue its dominance on the box office.
What works in Rohit Shetty directorial's favour is the fact that no big flim is releasing in the coming week which gives it a clear run for another 10 days before Vicky Kaushal's 'Uri' and Anupam Kher's 'The Accidental Prime Minister' hit the screens on January 11.
Despite being a masala film, Simmba is doing reasonably well in the international market too. "#Simmba springs a BIG SURPRISE Overseas... Masala films, generally, have limitations in international markets, but #Simmba is scoring everywhere...Day 1: $ 1.884 mn Day 2: $ 1.590 mn 2-day total: $ 3.474 mn [₹ 24.22 cr]," movie critic and business analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted on Sunday.
