Amid political drama and multiple issues and warnings, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil had released as scheduled on October 28 and now has joined 100 crore club in Bollywood. Karan Johar’s latest directorial venture has crossed Rs 100 crore mark in the second week of its release, and is first century for Director Karan Johar.

Repprtedly, the day wise break up for second week of the movie’s box office collection has been recorded as : Friday (Rs 4.56 crore), Saturday (Rs 5.85 crore), Sunday (Rs 6.55 crore), Monday (Rs 2.55 crore) and Tuesday (Rs 2.35 crore).

The opening for the movie went fairly well, bringing in a decent collection on the following days. In the first week, the movie earned Rs 80.19 crore, and missed 100cr mark with a small margin. It had been expected that movie would cross 100cr mark by its first week, but it took total 12 days to reach the mark of 100cr movie club.

It was after adding Monday and Tuesday, the total earning for the movie in India reached Rs 102.05 cr, which welcomed Johar in the high-end 100cr club of Directors. However, Johar’s earlier movies have reached 100cr mark, but they were all as producers, and ADHM was the first directorial success in 100cr club for Bollywood.

Interestingly, ADHM is Ranbir Kapoor’s third film to earn this distinction, (after Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Barfi) and Anushka Sharma’s fourth venture which has made more than 100cr club (after Jab Tak Hai JaanPK and Sultan). This is first 100cr venture for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as well. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter account to share the news.

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil had trouble before its release, following ire of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) post the Uri attacks, owing to the fact that it also features Pakistani actor Fawad Khan.

ADHM had already crossed Rs 200 crore including its overseas collections. It now awaits the next milestone of Housefull 3 (Rs 109 crore) to be able to become fifth highest grosser of the year. The top four grossers for the year have been Sultan, M.S.Dhoni, Airlift and Rustom.
