Tanhaji had crossed the Rs 50 crore mark on the third day of release, while it entered the Rs 100 crore club on the sixth day. Tanhaji has now emerged as Ajay Devgn's second-highest-grossing film, after Golmaal Again. The film is a lot more special for Devgn as this marks his 100th film in a career spanning over three decades. On the other hand, this film is Kajol and Saif Ali Khan's highest-grossing film.
