Box Office: ‘Singh Is Bliing’ collects Rs 44.4 crore in opening weekend

MUMBAI: Singh Is Bliing, an action comedy, gets Akshay Kumar his biggest opening day yet as Friday being a major all India holiday for Gandhi Jayanti. However, the clean sweep on Friday cost the film’s Saturday footfalls as the collections dropped by about 30 per cent. With Sunday being better, the film ended its opening weekend with Rs 44.4 crore.


Talvar earned much appreciation and positive press and despite getting odd show timings, managed a decent paid preview and Friday response. The film, in fact added to its collections on Saturday by word of mouth. With a decent Sunday to add to its kitty, the film collected Rs 9.2 crore in its first weekend. 


Kapil Sharma’s Kis Kisko Pyar Karu was director duo Abbas Mustan’s foray into comedy genre. The film maintained very well through rest of the week after an impressive weekend. It collected Rs 38.1 crore in its first week.


Calendar Girls, Madhur Bhandarkar’s personal formula film, mainly about scandalous content and counting on exploiting woman anatomy, falls flat on its face. The film is slated to have cost four times it should have and promises to be a major loser. After a poor opening weekend of Rs 3.8 crore, it had even poorer run through rest of the week adding a meagre Rs 1.3 crore for the first week tally of Rs 5.1 crore. 


Bhaag Johnny manages a poor Rs 1.9 crore for its first week. Time Out’s collections are very poor, whereas Katti Batti collects Rs 1.95 crore in its second week taking its two week tally to Rs 23.45 crore.


Welcome Back added Rs 40 lakh in its fourth week to take its four week total to Rs 94.3 crore.
