The coming Friday will again witness multiple releases in the form of JIGARIYAA, EKKEES TOPPON KI SALAAMI and TAMANCHEY etc. Given the fact that BANG BANG and HAIDER are still quite hot (despite being 8-days old), the new releases are unlikely to make much of a mark.
The bunched releases- BALWINDER SINGH… FAMOUS HO GAYA, 3 A.M., DESI KATTEY, MAINU EK LADKI CHAAHIYE, MUMBAI DELHI MUMBAI, CHAARFUTIYA CHOKARE etc, which effectively got a 6-day run (due to BANG BANG! and HAIDER on Thursday) , have all failed at the box-office.
The big Gandhi Jayanti releases, Hrithik-Katrina’s BANG BANG! and the Shahid Kapoor starrer HAIDER, went the expected way. The big-budgeted BANG BANG!, which started with a bang on an opening day, went on to cross the 100 crore figure on the fifth day. The other release, HAIDER, which commenced on a decent note, maintained well and netted 30 crore in 5-days.
In the overseas, BANG BANG! Is ruling the roost grossing £600,000 from UK and $1,449,215 from the US during the opening weekend (3-5 September) , while HAIDER too has done well grossing £90,000 from UK and $550,000 from the US during the same period.
Meanwhile Yash Raj Films’ Parineeti Chopra starrer DAAWAT-E-ISHQ fell heavily in the second week as it collected 70 lakhs from Bombay (collections from other cinemas unreceived), 12 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 5 lakhs from Surat, 2.75 lakhs from Baroda, 2.35 lakhs from Rajkot, 12.50 lakhs from Pune, 2.65 lakhs from Nasik, 1.50 lakhs from Goa, 55 lakhs from Delhi city, 9.50 lakhs from Noida, 7 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 4.20 lakhs from Kanpur, 12 lakhs from Lucknow, 1 lakh from Agra, 2.55 lakhs from Allahabad.
