Housefull 2 joins Rs 1 bn club

MUMBAI: Housefull 2 continues to do very well at the box office, maintaining steady figures in its second week with a net collection of Rs 297 million to take its total to Rs 955 million.

Interestingly, the film has already crossed the Rs 1 billion mark during its third weekend by adding approximately Rs 100 million during the Friday-Sunday period.

Meanwhile, last Friday‘s release Vicky Donor has been appreciated well and despite a weak opening, the positive word of mouth has helped the film tremendously as its Sunday collections showed as much as 90 per cent improvement over its opening Friday figures.

The film has collected Rs 81 million in its first weekend having found much favour with multiplex audience.

Hate Story lured some crowds at single screens thanks to its bare back publicity. But in the absence of appreciation, the weekend collected stood at Rs 58 million, indicating that the film‘s best showing may have come to an end looking s evident from its Monday performance.

Bittoo Boss, a film sans star value as well as content, met a poor fate as it managed to collect Rs 21 million in its first week. Chhodo Kal Ki Baateinalso failed to find audiences.

Agent Vinod collected Rs 1 million in its fourth week, taking its total to Rs 436.5 million.

Kahaani continued to contribute a decent Rs 6 million in its sixth week. The movie has so far collected Rs 590.9 million.

Paan Singh Tomar added Rs 0.8 million in its sixth week, taking its six-week tally to Rs 168.8 million.
