After its six-week run at the box office, Badla has been declared a super-hit. Despite limited number of screens, the Amitabh Bachchan-Taapsee Pannu thriller has been able to amass Rs 87.07 crores after six weeks.
Trade analysts note that the film has been able to sustain well at the box office as no other major films have released after Kesari. However, the film might witness a dip in collections after Kalank's release on 17 April.

Recently, Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan engaged in a fun banter after the roaring success of Badla. Amitabh demanded that Shah Rukh, who has financed the courtroom drama under his production banner Red Chillies, present the actors with an added bonus. In response, SRK quipped saying that everyone was waiting for Bachchan to throw a bash.
Badla has been directed by Kahaani director Sujoy Ghosh and is the remake of the 2016 Spanish thriller film Contratiempo. Bachchan plays Badal Gupta, a criminal defence lawyer, who has not lose a case in more than 40 years. Pannu's character, who believes she has been framed for murder, becomes his new client.
Badla hit screens on 8 March and raked in Rs 27.38 cr in the opening weekend.
Saif Ali Khan on replacing Abhishek Bachchan in Bunty Aur Babli 2: "I was told it is a different movie and it is not the same character (that Bachchan played). Aditya Chopra obviously knows what he is doing, so my character has been tweaked because I was playing it."
John Abraham, once an experimental actor and symbol of unassuming masculinity, reduced to a demolishing machine today
Ironically, John Abraham was a punch-up, anti-establishment emblem sex symbol in his prime. The most unobvious of male leads — handsome, and yet approaching something other than the sum of his handsomeness.
Bunty Aur Babli 2 is not a sequel we didn't need. But it's a follow-up that needed much more.
