The premier new movie of the week, Red Chillies Entertainment, BR Studios & Dharma Productions’ Akshaye, Sidharth and Sonakshai starrer ITTEFAQ, embarked on a dull start of 15 percent on an average. The film did not pick up substantially during the latter shows, and given the not so positive reviews and feedback, ITTEFAQ has a tough battle ahead. The first day appears to be in the 4-4.50 crore range, as per early estimates.
In fact, it was the Hollywood venture, THOR RAGNAROK, which was the front runner, netting 9-10 crore on the opening day!
Meanwhile, Rohit Shetty’s Ajay Devgn, Parineeti Chopra, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor, Shreyas Talpade, Kunal Kemmu and Tabu starrer GOLMAAL AGAIN saw another good week adding 45 crore plus and has thus netted 182 crore (to be validated) in two weeks from India and is a blockbuster hit. The film is most likely to end up notching up the first 200 crore figure of the year for a Hindi film.
Concluding with Aamir Khan’s Zaira Wasim starrer SECRET SUPERSTAR, the film added another 15 crore, thus netting 57 crore (to be validated) in two weeks from India and will end up as an above average fare, having grossed over 100 crore, worldwide.
