Meanwhile, news agency IANS reports that Hindi Medium had already earned Rs 15 crore from digital, satellite, music and overseas rights. In Hindi Medium Irrfan and Saba's characters want to give their daughter the best education so that she may be accepted by the elite.
Hindi Medium released along with Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor's Half Girlfriend, which is based on Chetan Bhagat's novel of the same name. Mohit Suri-directed Half Girlfriend is way ahead of Hindi Medium and has made Rs 37.15 crore so far.

Last week's releases Sarkar 3 and Meri Pyaari Bindu are nowhere in the race. However, S S Rajamouli's Baahubali: The Conclusion is still running successfully in the theatres.
