Prakash Jha directed ‘Raajneeti’ has lived up to the expectations of the audience. ‘Raajneeti’ has made the highest grosser of the year this weekend.
The film which reportedly cost Rs 55 crore for making and promotion, managed to gross a whopping Rs 10.5 crore on the first day itself and about Rs 33-35 crore over the weekend. This is the second film of the year to make such a huge profit with the first being the Aamir Khan starrer 3 Idiots.
‘Raajneeti’, a riveting political drama, was released on June 4th 2010. The film has stars including Ajay Devgan, Manoj Bajpai, Ranbir Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Katrina Kaif, Naseeruddin Shah and Nana Patekar. The film has received a huge response despite releasing in fewer screens and lesser shows than Housefull and Kites.
The film is in a position to achieve record collections in the course of its theatrical run, especially as there is no big movie scheduled for release the next weekend, giving ‘Raajneeti’ an uninterrupted 14 day solo theatrical run.
