As expected and predicted, the new release of the week, Neeraj Pandey's Sushant Singh Rajput starrer, M.S. DHONI- THE UNTOLD STORY, embarked on a superb start across the length and breadth of the country, barring the dubbed versions.M.S. DHONI- THE UNTOLD STORY AND PINK
Based on the life of India's most successful captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the film saw occupancies in the 40-50 percent range, during the morning shows itself, and picked up even more during the latter screenings, due to positive reviews and word-of-mouth. The first day may well be around the 20 crore mark, give or take a couple of crores!
What is interesting to note here is that during the present year, only Salman Khan's SULTAN has seen a better start, which says a lot!
As things stand, M.S. DHONI-THE UNTOLD STORY, is all set to be a hit, if not more, despite the high involved costs.
Moving on to mega star Amitabh Bachchan starrer, Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury directed, PINK, the film continued its triumphant and rock steady run even during its second outing, adding another 22 crore. PINK has thus netted 58 crore in two weeks from India and is a hit plus, and will add some more to its kitty before it bids adieu to the cinemas.
