Has Ranveer and Deepika's sizzling honeymoon phase chemistry trumped SRK and Kajol's classic pairing?
The much-talked about clash at the box office, Dilwale vs Bajirao Mastani has finally happened and if we're talking money, Dilwale has emerged the hero, collecting INR 21 crore on the first day alone. Rohit Shetty, paired with Bollywood's all-time favourite couple, SRK and Kajol and an otherwise stellar cast was a off to a flying start.
Although film critics were less than impressed, the movie's momentum showed no signs of slowing down on social media.
There was no shortage of positive feedback.
However, not everyone was impressed.
In contrast, Bajirao Mastani was off to a slow start, making INR 12 crore on opening day.
However, glowing reviews and word of mouth really revved up the epic period saga's ticket sales.
The love for the Sanjay Leela Bhansali flick just kept pouring in.
While Dilwale seems to be raking in the big bucks, Bajirao has clearly gained critical acclaim.
And much like the tortoise in the race, it would appear that the underdog has surfaced as the winner in the end.
