Bhaag Milkha Bhaag collects Rs 30.6 crore in opening weekend

MUMBAI: Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, which started slow on Friday, improved over next two days, peaking on Sunday. The film found patronage at multiplexes while the single screens reflected poor performance at most places. The film has managed to collect Rs 30.6 crore in its opening weekend. The film is expected to sustain at a few multiplexes in Mumbai, Delhi and NCR besides Punjab. The distributors of D-Day, due next Friday, skeptical about getting playtime are now sure of good screens.

Sixteen has failed to get audience.

The Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha love story Lootera which had a fair weekend due to support from Metro multiplexes, dropped drastically after the weekend and ended its first week run with Rs 22.4 crore. With its limited face value and heavy storyline, it failed to sustain. This is Vikramaditya Motwane‘s second directorial venture, following the critically acclaimed Udaan (2010).

Policegiri, which stars Sanjay Dutt, has failed badly; its typical south content, Dutt and crude treatment failed to jell. The film has collected Rs 13.25 crore in its first week. Dutt‘s next release this year would be the Zanjeer remake where he would be reprising the memorable role of Sher Khan previously essayed by the late legend Pran in the 1973 original.

The Emraan Hashmi and Vidya Balan starrer Ghanchakkar has added Rs 1.5 crore in its second week to take its two week total to Rs 28.8 crore. With a poor script and execution, the film has not added much.

Raanjhanaa, which marked the debut of the south superstar Dhanush of Kolavari Di fame, and met with mixed response due to its second half, has sustained well in its third week by collecting Rs 7.25 crore and taking its three week tally to Rs 56.55 crore.

Excel Productions‘ youth flick Fukrey survives its fourth week with figures of Rs 1.5 crore and taking its four week total to Rs 34.2 crore.

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani has added Rs 50 lakh for its sixth week to take its six week tally to Rs 182.55 crore. Ayan Mukherjee‘s second directorial venture has certainly gone down well with the audiences across the globe; it has certainly set the benchmark for the highest grosser for this year.
