Bajrangi Bhaijaan has collected Rs 102.60 net box office in India and Rs 51 crore (gross) overseas, and has also become the fastest-ever Hindi movie to collect Rs 100 crore, its global distributor Eros International Media said on Tuesday.

Salman Khan also clinched record with Bajrangi Bhaijaan after it notched up the highest single-day collection by any Hindi film. Bajrangi Bhaijaan garnered a net of Rs 38.75 crore on Day 3 of release, Eros International said.

Bajrangi Bhaijaan had collected Rs 27.05 crore in India on Monday, which is the highest Monday figure for any film in India, Eros said.
