The new release of the week, Richa Chadha’s MASAAN saw a lot of critical acclaim but could not impress commercially.
|BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN AND PK|
Meanwhile after a record breaking 102 crore plus opening weekend, the Salman, Kareena and Nawazuddin starrer, BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN, went from strength-to-strength, during the weekdays.
The record(s) that BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN was chasing interestingly was Salman’s very own KICK (173 crore) and the biggest, Aamir Khan’s PK (180 crore).
With 150 crore in mere five days, it was just a formality, as BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN netted nearly 182 crore (can be more!), and has thus emerged as the biggest opening week netter at the Indian box-office. What is worth watching is whether or not BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN touches the 300 crore mark from India.
Before we sign out, as per unconfirmed reports, BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN is still rocking the overseas with over $10m, till date!
