The new release of the week, Balaji Motion Pictures’ Aysuhmann-Nushrat starrer, DREAM GIRL embarked upon a good 30-35 percent start, on a working day, during the normally empty morning shows.
The collections picked up further during the latter shows and if the outcome is still not obvious (10 crore first day), we say it loud and clear (just like our box-office report); DREAM GIRL is on way to be the next in the line of hits for Ayushmann Khurrana.
Meanwhile, last week’s Nitesh Tiwari directed Sushant Singh Rajput starrer, CHHICHHORE, built up substantially on a good and escalating opening weekend (35 crore) with rock steady weekdays, even post the restricted holidays.
The first week appears to be in the 67-68 crore range and the film has held strongly on the second Friday as well, and the only debatable point is whether or not CHHICHHORE will touch the super hit mark! The film has also impressed in the overseas, especially in the US grossing a good $850,000 till September 11.
