Deepika Padukone scores a hattrick of 100 crores with RAM-LEELA

By Rachana Sheth, Glamsham Editorial

It was indeed a rocking year for Bollywood's uncrowned and undisputed numero uno actress, Deepika Padukone what with four hits in a row - RACE 2, YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI, CHENNAI EXPRESS and the recent one being GOLIYON KI RASLEELA RAM-LEELA! Interestingly, Deepika has scored a hattrick of 100 crores, with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's GOLIYON KI RASLEELA RAM-LEELA starring Ranveer Singh alongside, entering the 100 crore club!

While RACE 2 couldn't touch the 100 crore benchmark, it did earn good 95 crores (approximately). Whereas her Ayan Mukerji directed Ranbir Kapoor starrer YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI and Rohit Shetty directed Shahrukh Khan starrer CHENNAI EXPRESS created newest records and set the cash registers ringing at the Box-office. Where YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI minted 187 crores, CHENNAI EXPRESS, shattering all the records, raked in 216.24 cr.

Notably, Deepika ruled the roost throughout the year, quite literally, by making her mark in each quarter. Well how? Interestingly, each of her films released in the respective quarter and was the biggest hit of that particular quarter. Not only this, almost all her films were festive/holiday releases starting with RACE 2 (26th January 2013) that released on Republic Day, YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI (31st May 2013) hit the screens during Summer, CHENNAI EXPRESS was a Eid release, and lastly RAM-LEELA released post Diwali!

Our heartiest congratulations to the new BLOCKBUSTER queen of Bollywood, Deepika Padukone! It calls for a celebration Deepy! Meanwhile, we raise a toast to your unbeatable triumph!
