Box Office: ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ zooms past Rs 200 crore

MUMBAI: While most films shy away from releasing immediately after a much expected blockbuster is released in theatres, the small but critically acclaimed film Masaan was bold enough to come in the week following the Salman Khan starrer Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

Masaan, despite being awarded at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, fails to make a mark at the box office as its very limited opening weekend footfalls show.

After a weekend of over Rs 100 crore, Bajrangi Bhaijaan continued to cash in on post Eid revelries. The almost universal positive word of mouth also helped the film continue its record-breaking spree throughout its first week outperforming all top grossers of recent times. The film ended its first week with Rs 184.85 crore and went on to cross the Rs 200 crore mark on day nine.

The film has an open week and will continue its march into the second week where it is expected to create more records, especially on Saturday and Sunday.

Baahubali: The Beginning (Hindi- Dubbed) maintains a strong trend in its second week despite strong opposition in Bajrangi Bhaijaan. At the same time, the film also benefitted from Eid celebrations as the Muslim audience throng the cinemas after a month of restraint due to Ramzan. The film collected Rs 24.7 crore in its second week to take its two-week total to Rs 66.25 crore.

Having crossed the Rs 100 crore mark, which matter much to such controlled budget films, ABCD 2 comes to the end of its run adding Rs 10 lakh in its fifth week taking its five week total to Rs 105.05 crore.
