As per figures collected till Saturday (20 April), the film's earnings stand at Rs 280.70 cr ($40.43 million).
With the latest figures coming in, Andhadhun has high chances of beating Warner Bros' latest Shazam, which released in the same week. Not only that, the crime thriller also threatens to overtake the lifetime business of Bajrangi Bhaijaan in China.
Andhadhun has also become the ninth highest-grossing Indian film of 2018, dethroning Akshay Kumar's Padman and Alia Bhatt's Raazi.
As reported earlier, the worldwide theatrical revenue of Andhadhun — including the lifetime non-China overseas total of $3.1 million (Rs 23 cr) — stands at a whopping Rs 215.63 cr, making it the second Rs 200 cr film for Ayushmann Khurrana after the blockbuster Badhaai Ho, which also released last year.
