With Simmba crossing the 100 crore benchmark at the box office just to be scored at 124 crore and the counting is still running, Rohit Shetty has scribed his name in the big hot shot directors of 2018 list.
“Rohit holds the record for maximum films in ₹ 100 cr Club,” wrote trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
Shetty’s films are known for their mass appeal – Simmba producer Karan Johar in a recent tweet called him the ‘masala maverick’ – and for combining several popular genres. Simmba is a spin-off of his popular Singham series of films, that starred Ajay Devgn as a tough cop.
Ranveer announced the achievement on Instagram, declaring, “All hail the blockbuster king! Ro-bro be slamming century after century.”
