The two releases of last week, namely UTV Motion Picture's KAI PO CHE! and Sanjay Dutt's ZILA GHAZIABAD, behaved quite predictably. While UTV Motion Picture's KAI PO CHE! has been lapped up by the high end multiplex audience (especially in Metros) netting 17 core during the opening weekend, ZILA GHAZIABAD appealed ( initially) to the mass belt of hinterland netting around 11-12 crore during the same period. However, during the weekdays KAI PO CHE! maintained rock-steady collections but ZILA GHAZIABAD saw an alarming erosion in collection.
KAI PO CHE! has also triumphed in the overseas (especially in the US) grossing £93,000 from UK and $523,000 from the US during the opening weekend (22-24 February)
