Simmba has also raked over Rs 350 crores at the global box office, and now ranks under the top 10 highest-grossing Bollywood film in the domestic market, according to Livemint.

With Simmba, Shetty has become the first director to have eight consecutive films enter the Rs 100 crore net domestic box office club. He is the second director in India with three films to enter the Rs 200 crore club, according to the makers.
