Box Office: 'Airlift' collects Rs 44.24 crore; 'KKHH 3' does Rs 17 crore biz

MUMBAI: The Akshay Kumar starrer Airlift earned a lot of appreciation and also grew gradually at the box office. Starting its opening day with moderate collections, the film fared well on day two and three thanks to positive word of mouth. Being a partly dry theme and part documentary, the film is doing remarkably well. 


Kumar’s films have a limit when it comes to collections but, then, his films also always have manageable budgets. The film has collected Rs 44.24 crore in its opening weekend. The Republic Day eve as well as the Republic Day holiday should help while the severe cold temps in the North may also affect early morning as well as night shows to an extent.


Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3 caters to a certain kind of audience and, which does not include multiplex patrons. This limits its reach. The film collects merely Rs 17.2 crore in its opening weekend, which does no justice to the price that was demanded for distribution rights.


On the other hand, Wazir did okay in absence of oppositions in its second week by collecting Rs 8.25 crore taking its two week total to Rs 36.65 crore. However, with two new releases last Friday, the film crashes badly.


Dilwale has virtually come to the end of its run after five weeks. Adding just Rs 60 lakh for the fifth week, the film’s five week tally now stands at Rs 139.35, which is way below the expected mark.


Bajirao Mastani is still finding patrons and has added Rs 4.5 crore in its fifth week, taking its five week tally to Rs 170.4 crore, which is not enough yet to cover its huge making cost.
