Alia Bhatt- Varun Dhawan starrer touches a new benchmark!

Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan have one of the cutest onscreen chemistry in the industry. The recent installment of Dulhania franchise is a proof to that! Badrinath Ki Dulhania entered the 100 crore club and the makers could not stop rejoicing! Little did they know that their film was destined to go a hundred steps further to cross the 200 crore benchmark! The film which was earlier predicted to be a rom-com turned out to be preachy and fans loved this surprise! While Karan Johar was positive that the film would be a super hit since day 1, he must have not thought about such huge success at the ticket windows!

A few high budget films did release after Badrinath Ki Dulhania but failed to create the magic as that of Alia – Varun starrer. Talking about this latest achievement, trade Analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#BadrinathKiDulhania collects  2.11 cr in Weekend 4… [Week 4] Fri 50 lakhs, Sat 72 lakhs, Sun 89 lakhs. Total:  114.24 cr. India biz.” Well, Badri and his dulhania have indeed won the hearts with their desi yet thoughtful love story!

The makers of the film are now even thinking of a third installment to the franchise. After Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki Dulhania, we wonder what KJo’s students will offer us next! As reported in a leading daily, director Shashank Khaitan said, “We are delighted with the response. We are getting a lot of encouragement. After seeing the film, the audience is coming out of the theatres with happy faces. I am really keen to make the third instalment of the ‘…Dulhania’ franchise.”


Now after this, it won’t be surprising if he immediately announces the third installment already. We do not know whether Alia and Varun will be the part of it but Dulhania franchise will be incomplete without them for sure! For latest scoops from the world of Bollywood, keep visiting India.com.
