It is by now clear that the Eid battle between WANTED and DIL BOLE HADIPPA is slowly but surely moving in favour of the Boney Kapoor produced WANTED. While DIL BOLE HADIPPA is having an edge in the multiplexes of North India (Delhi-NCR and East Punjab), at an all India level, it is WANTED that is being lapped up, more so at mass oriented centres.
However, it is not over by any means for DIL BOLE HADIPPA, as it's quite a low budget of 14-15 crore will ensure that the Rani-Shahid starrer is sure to be a profitable venture for Yash Raj Films, who are also the worldwide distributors. In the Overseas, the film is not exactly setting the box-office on fire, but is fairing much better than the Salman-Ayesha starrer, WANTED.
In a nutshell, while DIL BOLE HADIPPA will be a safe bet for its makers, by the second weekend, the 34-35 crore WANTED will need to do much more than a couple of weeks run to become a plus fare!
