The major release of the week, Sunny-Kangana starrer, I LOVE NY, was off to a dull start of around 15-20 percent (better in Delhi-NCR and East Punjab). Given the comparatively small release size and with Salman’s BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN releasing next week, the film has an uphill task, despite good production values and music.

The other release of the same week, S.S. Rajamouli’s BAHUBALI (dubbed), fared better with a 25 percent start, and with a higher release size it should see a decent first day.
Meanwhile, the Subhash Kapoor directed Arshad-Amit starrer, GUDDU RANGEELA, failed to consolidate after a fair weekend (6 crore), ending the first week netting nearly 9 crore from India, and is a box-office failure. The other release of the same week, SECOND HAND HUSBAND, is a washout with around 3 crore during the opening week.
Concluding with Walt Disney Pictures and UTV Motion Pictures’ Remo Dsouza directed Varun Dhawan, Shraddha Kapoor and Prabhu Dheva starrer, ABCD- ANYBODY CAN DANCE 2, the film crossed the century mark, and at the end of the third week the film has netted 103 crore (to be validated) from India and is a super hit.
