This Friday is set for an interesting clash as Aamir Khan's DELHI BELLY is all set to take on Amitabh Bachchan's BBUDDAH… HOGA TERRA BAAP. As things stand today, DELHI BELLY is likely to have good start at city multiplexes, while BBUDDAH will own the single screens and also do good business at Hindi belt multiplexes. The big advantage that the Amitabh Bachchan starrer enjoys over Imran Khan's DELHI BELLY is that BBUDDAH is only a 10.50 crore film as opposed to the 25 crore DELHI BELLY. Having said that, as far as the numbers are concerned, the first day as well as the first weekend honours will belong to DELHI BELLY.

Last Friday saw the release of Indra Kumar's DOUBLE DHAMAAL, the sequel to his 2007 success, DHAMAAL. The film embarked on a good start and improved with each passing day, during the weekend, netting a good 25.62 crores! Given the good start the film is hopefully all set to be a plus fare for many of its distributors! DOUBLE DHAMAAL has also done very well in the Overseas (given the cast) grossing ?118,000 from UK and $302,000 from US during the opening weekend (24-26 June).

Moving on, EROS International and Red Chillies Entertainment's ALWAYS KABHI KABHI proves to be a nightmare for all concerned. The film collected 35 lakhs from Bombay (collections from 33 cinemas unreceived), 15.50 lakhs from Ahmedabad (collections from 2 cinemas unreceived), 3 lakhs from Baroda (collections from 3 cinemas unreceived), 3.15 lakhs from Rajkot, 3.50 lakhs from Pune (collections from other cinemas unreceived), 2.50 lakhs from Nasik (collections from other cinemas unreceived), 1.65 lakhs from Goa, 1.15 lakhs from Belgaum, 35 lakhs from Delhi city, 5 lakhs from Noida, 2.60 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 2.75 lakhs from Kanpur, 6 lakhs from Lucknow, 1 lakh from Agra, 1.15 lakhs from Aligarh, 5.50 lakhs from Gurgaon, 1 lakh from Faridabad, 4 lakhs from Chandigarh, 1.65 lakhs from Jalandhar, 1.50 lakhs from Ludhiana, 6 lakhs from Calcutta (collections from other cinemas unreceived), 1.50 lakhs from Guwahati, 3.65 lakhs from Nagpur, 1.20 lakhs from Jabalpur, 3 lakhs from Raipur, 5 lakhs from Indore, 2 lakhs from Gwalior, 2 lakhs from Bhopal, 10 lakhs from Jaipur, 1.20 lakhs from Ajmer, 1.55 lakhs from Kota, 10 lakhs from Hyderabad, 7 lakhs from Bangalore, 1 lakh from Mangalore, 1 lakh from Vijaywada , 1 lakh from Vishakhapatnam and 1 lakh from Madras (collections from other cinemas unreceived).
