Added by harini on Feb 07, 2012

The movie ‘Agneepath’, starring Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Sanjay Dutt and Rishi Kapoor’, seems intent on making new records at the box office.

The movie already broke ‘Bodyguard’s’ record by becoming the highest grosser on the opening day.

Now the movie has entered the elite club of 100 crore movies in just 9 days from its release. But still the movie ‘Bodyguard’ holds the record for hitting the mark fastest as it collected 100 Crore in just 7 days.

This is the first time that a movie starring either Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra or Sanjay Dutt has reached the 100 crore mark.

The 100 crore club was opened by Aamir Khan starrer ‘Ghajini’ in 2008. It was followed by Aamir Khan’s ’3 Idiots’, which achieved the feat in 9 days.

In 2010 it was only two films 'Dabangg' (10 days) and 'Golmaal 3' (14 days) which reached the magical number.

But the year 2011 has been good for Bollywood as 'Ready' (15 days), 'Singham' (7 weeks), 'Bodyguard' (7 days), 'Ra One' (10 days) and 'Don 2' (15 days) all have managed to join the elite club.

‘Agneepath’ is the first movie in 2012 to achieve this amount of success.

“Agneepath is the latest entrant in 100 cr nett Club. Collected Rs 15.25 cr nett in Wknd 2, taking total to Rs 106.3 cr nett. Super Hit,” tweeted trade analyst Taran Adarsh.

“Agneepath collects 91.05 cr nett. Thu 23 cr, Fri 12.75 cr, Sat 14.5 cr, Sun 17.25 cr, Mon 7.5 cr, Tue 6.4 cr, Wed 5.4 cr, Thu 4.25 cr,” he added.
