Box Office: ‘ABCD 2’ collects Rs 45.5 crore in opening weekend

MUMBAI: Youth and the growing fan following for young stars, Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor, earned a positive welcome to ABCD 2 with a Rs 14.4 crore opening day. The film maintained similar figures on Saturday, not improving but also not dropping. With figures being the best at over Rs 17 crore, the film ended its opening weekend with Rs 45.5 crore. The film will have to sustain well through the week to justify its high cost. It has the advantage of three small films as oppositions next week.


Hamari Adhuri Kahaani pays for being a depressing film with a poor script. Not designed to be an entertainer, the film does not even tug at one’s emotions. Having opened to a weak response, it stays that way to collect Rs 26.65 crore in its first week. The film dropped drastically in its second weekend.


Dil Dhadakne Do has made the most of poor opposition and has managed to have some hold at the box office to collect Rs 15.5 crore in its second week to take its two week total to Rs 69.9 crore.


On the other hand, Tanu Weds Manu Returns maintains a strong trend holding its own with collection figures of Rs 8.25 crore in its fourth week to take its three week tally to Rs 146.38 crore.


Piku collected Rs 15 lakh in its sixth week to take its six week total to Rs 79.92 crore, whereas Gabbar Is Back collected Rs 17 lakh in seventh week to take its seven week total to Rs 80.22 crore.
