DUM MAARO DUM has collected a worldwide gross of Rs 29.8 crores.In spite of the IPL frenzy, DUM MAARO DUM has managed to post an opening weekend nett of Rs. 16.5 crores in India and an equally encouraging box office of Rs. 6.3 crores from the international markets.
Saturday fall was expected as Friday was a holiday and the numbers were high. The word of mouth on the film grew and Sunday saw a huge jump in the numbers posting 5.6 crores net which was more than the Easter Friday holiday box office number.
The film has attracted audiences in International markets as well grossing a phenomenal US$ 1.4 mn. It has got the second best opening for a Bollywood film in the US after YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA in 2011.
"The film has already recovered its cost of production of 22 crores in the first weekend from domestic and International theatrical, music (including overflows) and satellite. Propelled by positive reviews and supported by great word of mouth we hope to have a long run at the box office aided by no big release in the forthcoming weeks. " says Vijay Singh CEO Fox Star Studios.
