The action comedy has augmented its firm presence at the box office by amassing a grand total of Rs. 43.10 crores net box office over the weekend in India, with further increases expected.
After opening at 12.10 crores net on Friday and 14 crores net on Saturday BOL BACHCHAN, the net box office in India saw a phenomenal increase on Sunday thanks to packed cinema houses contributing to the day's total of 17crores (approx), with numbers still coming in from all centers.
Presented by Fox Star Studios, the Shree Ashtavinayak Cinevision and Ajay Devgn Ffilms' produced flick is reportedly shaping to be Devgn-Shetty's biggest films, having generated 36% higher figures than SINGHAM and around 43% bigger than GOLMAAL 3 during their opening day. This remarkable feat was achieved in spite of monsoons and other anticipated regional releases such as EEGA in South and JATT AND JULIET in Punjab.
With a perfect combination of action, comedy and dhamaal entertainment the movie which stars Ajay Devgn, Abhishek Bachchan, Asin and Prachi Desai in the lead roles has been generating a tremendous reaction from audiences with immense appreciation especially for Ajay Devgn as the macho yet endearingly funny pehelwan. Joining the Lion King this time is Abhishek Bachchan whose hilarious presence has added a unique flavor to the laugh riot and is being well received by audiences as well.
Internationally too, positive reports are flooding in from all centers with BOL BACHCHAN doing extremely well when compared to other recent releases overseas.
BOL BACHCHAN has grossed US$ 2.06 mn. over the weekend with the split as follows US - US$ 540000, UK - US$ 255000, Middle East - US$ 650000, Australia - US$ 167000, Rest of the World - US$ 450000
In fact BOL BACHCHAN has fared significantly better than all Devgn - Shetty combination films and recent releases including ROWDY RATHORE.
Well it seems that the coveted 100 crore mark is not far away!
