Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus crossed the milestone of Rs 300 crore at the Indian box office. After being mired in controversies from its filming days, the Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor starrer released in India (except Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat and Bihar) on January 25.
