MUMBAI: Akshay Kumar starrer Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty had a weaker opening than expected on day one, show one. However, the collections improved as the day progressed. The opening also suffered due to colleges reopening and the suspense over pending admissions of many students. The film took a leap on Sunday to end its opening weekend with Rs 40.2 crore which is short of expectations for a solo release and the very high price tag of the film. The film will have to sustain well in the days to come.
Filmistan has proved to be a damp squib with neither face value nor a definite promotion campaign. With Hindi film audience, critical acclaim and awards is no assurance of box office success. The film has collected Rs 2.85 crore in its first weekend.
Heropanti has maintained excellent collections in its second week. The film collected Rs 14.25 crore to take its two week total to Rs 50.15 crore.
Citylights has managed to collect about Rs 5 crore for its first week. While Kuku Mathur Ki Jhand Ho Gayi is poor with figures of Rs 2.15 crore in its first week, 2 States has added Rs 30 lakh in its seventh week to take its seven week tally to Rs 104.05 crore.
