Love conquers all they say and the same has happened with T-series and Mahesh Bhatt 'Aashiqui 2'.
The 12 crore musical romancer has already registered a whooping20.50 crore all over. Starting with a fantastic note with 6.25 on Friday the movie beat the ongoing cricket craze the IPL and Bollywood much anticipated major Iron Man 3.
The Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor starrer directed by Mohit Suri is scoring high on its emotional connect and music. Attracting young legs in metros adds a trade insider.
Opening with 6.25 crore on Friday it went on to register 6.75 crore on Saturday and 7.50 crore on Sunday..
The figures are significant considering the tough competition from an Hollywood major Iron Man 3, and IPL .. the collections would have been much higher otherwise.
Adds producer Bhushan Kumar, "Aashiqui has managed to retain a spot in people's minds for over two decades. I don't think any other music album could sustain such popularity over such a long period of time. The audience we are catering to ensures that my film has more muscle than Iron Man (at the box office). Iron Man will have its own audience while Aashiqui 2 caters to true entertainment lovers...
Mahesh Bhatt shares, "I'm happy to state that Aashiqui 2 has managed to even melt the heart of Iron Man...people are embracing the film and we couldn't be more excited".
