Bajrangi Bhaijaan has opened to a fantastic box office response making it Salman Khan's eighth film to reach the Rs 100-crore mark. The film broke all records to make the quickest Rs 100 crores at the box office, but it wasn't quick enough.

Priyanka Chopra, who turned 33 on July 18, is reportedly set to shift into a swanky Juhu apartment, which is reportedly her 'perfect' birthday gift.

Salman also said that box office numbers and reviews don't matter to him anymore.
SS Rajamouli's Baahubali, which released on July 10, has already collected over 200 crores at the box office. Ecstatic fans down South were unanimous in their praise of the film. The ones who saw Bajrangi Bhaijaan on the opening day have given the film high ratings so far.

Meanwhile, Baahubali, a Rs 250-crore movie, still needs to go a long way to break even, though it minted over Rs 100 crores in the opening weekend.
Actor Shah Rukh Khan's wife Gauri led the list celebrities who were invited by filmmaker Karan Johar to a special screening of Baahubali in Mumbai on July 9.
The launch of the trailer of Baahubali was as grand as the epic itself.
