Teenage heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor's WAKE UP SID had decent collections to show even in its fourth week. In fact its fourth week collections will be well in excess of its third week total! A rare feat indeed. Though naysayers might say that it got additional screens due to MAIN AURR MRS. KHANNA's disastrous run, and early exit due to the six national multiplex chains pulling it out due to its release on direct-to-home. But then WAKE UP SID had the potential and the confidence of the distributors and exhibitors to get the extra screens!
However, Ranbir Kapoor's AJAB PREM KI GHAZAB KAHANI is all set to cannibalize, and even upstage his WAKE UP SID. The reason is obvious. The Ranbir-Katrina starrer is a keenly awaited film which will definitely see a big release, and as a result WAKE UP SID (with a sizeable number of prints even in the fifth week) will have to make way for it. In the absence of any big release WAKE UP SID might have gone on to achieve a clean hit tag but its run will be abruptly halted due to Ranbir's own AJAB PREM KI GHAZAB KAHANI!
Not that Ranbir will mind as this is a part and parcel of films starring the same actors releasing in close proximity to each other. In case of BLUE it was Sanjay Dutt's BLUE which upstaged his own ALL THE BEST in the first week, but it is ATB which has marched ahead in the second!
