Can you imagine a Marathi movie grossing Rs 100 Crore at the International box-office

But now, "Sairat", a small flick released on April 29, 2016, has entered the elite 100 Cr Club in style. The film directed by Nagaraj Manjula was made with a minimum budget of Rs 4 Crore, and now, after 50 days of its release, it has collected nearly $15 million, and it is increasing day by day.

Interestingly, the film has broken the collection record of "Fan" which earned Rs 85 Crore. This is the first time that a Maharashtrian movie grossed more than $ 7.5 million at the Box Office.

Lead actors in the outing, the 15-year-old Renku Rajaguru, and the 23-year-old Akassh Thossar has now emerged as the hottest properties in the state, and it has even affected their personal lives.

Earlier, Rinku has revealed that she is being followed and mobbed by her fans quite often.

On the other hand, the young actor is facing huge issues on the sets of his second film. The shooting of "FU" which is being crafted by Manjreker is going on steadily in Maharashtra, and the crew has adopted tight security measures to ensure the safety of the star.

A close source to "FU" told that shooting with Thosar is now a headache for the crew members, as he is being targeted by the mob to take selfies.

"Sairat" showcased an elegant, romantic story which impressed audiences of all genres. It has a low-caste young boy who falls in eternal affection with the daughter of a wealthy landlord.
