A K S - Not just an opening weekend wonder!
Joginder Tuteja, Bollywood Trade News Network
When AAP KAA SURROOR was gearing up for release, not many were giving it a chance to stay on at the theaters for beyond a week. The tune changed when the film opened to house full boards and the reverse trend began with the opening being compared to the likes of D2, ‘Krrish’ or even ‘Sivaji’. Well, no doubt both were extreme cases with none being practical enough.
Nevertheless, the movie came and made money once the opening weekend was through. Speculations were being made that the hit status of the movie was primarily due to a bumper opening and the film would eventually go downhill from thereon.
Well, as it has turned out, yet again it has been plain speculation at work with reality being completely different. The reason being that after making a healthy 10 crore plus in its first week, the film has stayed on considerably well even in the second week with a fall that just matches the industry standard of 50%.
Now that's commendable because the biggest of films fall by around 50% in their second week and for a film like AAP KAA SURROOR to be following the similar trend, it is nothing short of an achievement.
In its second week, AKS has made not less than 5 crores which makes it a 15 crore plus total for the film in 2 weeks flat. How far will the film go from here? Well, even an inch ahead would only keep the distributors grinning from ear to ear.
Yes, Himesh Reshammiya can now add one more specialty in his profile – ‘Acting’. This is certainly not the last that one has seen of him in the theaters!
