It's been over a month since Meghna Gulzar's spy thriller 'Raazi' hit the big screen and yet it continues to do well at the box office. The film, which had Alia Bhatt playing the lead role, has now earned a little more than Rs 200 crores worldwide.
The ecstatic producer of the film, Karan Johar, shared the news on social media on Wednesday. Johar wrote, "A PROUD FILM!!! 207 crores GROSS WORLWIDE!(Sic)"
The film has already crossed the Rs 100 crore mark in the domestic market.
Co-produced by Junglee PIctures, the film was based on a novel which in turn is based on a true story. Bhatt won critical acclaim for her performance in the film which also featured actors like Vicky Kaushal, Jaideep Ahlawat, Rajit Kapoor and Soni Razdan.
The film's success is also an indication of the changing times in Bollywood where more films with female leads are being accepted by the Indian audience. Apart from 'Raazi', 'Veere Di Wedding', which had four female leads and was produced by women, has done good business at the Box Office.
