Bollywood Box Office Report Of The Week: 3rd September 2015
|HERO MOVIE WALLPAPERS|
|WELCOME BACK WALLPAPERS|
Although Anees Bazmee’s Anil, John, Naseer, Nana, Paresh and Shruti starrer, WELCOME BACK, the sequel to the highly successful, WELCOME, did not appear to be high on hype, it surprised with its inspired run, with increasing collections, as the days progressed. The film ended up netting 51 crore, during the opening weekend. Given the weekdays progress, WELCOME BACK is sure to go past the entire run of the prequel (WELCOME: 70-72 crore) in just a week and also go well past 100 crore, by the third weekend. And it means that WELCOME BACK, despite the high cost (90-95 crore, all inclusive), is sure to be another sequel success, if not a hit. WELCOME BACK has rocked the overseas and is the second best 2015 performer (after BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN) grossing $3.25m, with £215,000 from UK and $715,000 from the US, during the opening weekend (4-6 September).
The other release of the week, Vije Bhatia’s LAKHON HAIN YAHAN DILWALE, got side-lined by the audience (as well as the critics!), due to the WELCOME BACK tsunami, despite reasonably good content.
