Rowdy Rathore becomes this year's biggest weekend grosser

MUMBAI: Rowdy Rathore has made the most of its mass appeal and an exhaustive release, as many as 2,800 prints across India. The film has also marked Akshay Kumar’s reentry to the action movie genre.

The film has gone on to collect Rs 483 million in its opening weekend, making it the highest weekend grosser in this year and fifth highest so far.

Bodyguard topped with Rs 889.5 million (from five-day weekend), followed by Ra.One (Rs 803 million from 5 days), Agneepath (Rs 620 million from 4-day weekend) and Dabangg (Rs 48.8 million).

Among the other films, Department dropped beyond salvation in its second week managing to collect just Rs 7.5 million, taking its two-week total to Rs 118.5 million and making it a loss-making project.

Ishqzaade continued to hold its own and collected Rs 75.5 million in the third week, recording a handsome total of Rs 458 million.

Dangerous Ishq added Rs 4 million in its third week, taking its tally to Rs 67 million and, thus, making it a major loser.

Jannat 2 has managed to stay above the Rs 10 million mark with collections of Rs 11 million in its fourth week. It took the four-week net collections to Rs 459 million.

Vicky Donour maintained its excellent run at the box office by collecting Rs 21.5 million in its sixth week, which takes its total to Rs 404.5 million. It is set to be a hit.

Housefull2 has come towards the end of its run with a symbolic contribution of Rs 2 million in its eighth week. The film has so far mopped up Rs 1.19 billion.
