After smashing records for day one collections at the ticket windows, Rohit Shetty's sequel to his 2011 hit Singham continues to rule the box office. 

The Kareena Kapoor-Ajay Devgn-starrer averaged Rs. 77.64 crore within three days of its release.

Singham Returns has been made on an estimated budget of Rs. 115 crore. The film collected Rs. 32.09 crore on day one and the collections slightly dipped on Saturday to Rs. 21.05 crore. It picked up the earnings on Sunday and made Rs. 24.5 crore. 

Considering the fact that this is an extended weekend and Monday is a restricted holiday in most offices, the movie might well make an entry into the Rs. 100-crore club by Tuesday.
