BO: Kai Po Che picks up pace over weekend

MUMBAI: Abhishek Kapoor’s directorial venture Kai Po Che, which opened low and with mixed reports, picked up well over the weekend to collect Rs 168 million for the opening three days. This is generally on the patronage by multiplex audience as at places with single screens shows had to be cancelled due to lack of audience.

Sanjay Dutt and Vivek Oberoi starrer Zila Ghaziabad did not fare as well and managed to collect Rs 104 million in its opening weekend.

The Bhatt camp’s latest offering Murder 3 found little appreciation and resulted in a below average first week with collections of 171.5 million.

Vivek Oberoi’s slack run at the box office continued as his second release this month, Jayantabhai KI Love Story, continued to do poorly. The film managed to collect just about Rs 25 million in its first week.

Special 26 maintained steady collections in its second week to collect Rs 183 million, taking its box-office total to Rs 601 million.

ABCD: Any Body Can Dance held well in its second week to collect Rs 91 million. Its two-week total is Rs 369 million.

Race 2 added Rs 11 million in its fourth week to have box office collections of Rs 975.3 million so far, just shy of being the first movie in 2013 to cross the Rs one billion mark.
