‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ collects Rs 28.07 crore at box office

MUMBAI: The plight of the exhibition sector continues as the supply of crowd puling films remains scarce. What’s more, the next few weeks will also see small budget films releasing. While the ICC Cricket World Cup has reached its logical conclusion, come 8 April and the next major hurdle for films will come in the form of the Indian Premiere League (IPL).


Barkhaa, an old-fashioned love story, which released last week, saw poor box office collections in its opening weekend.


The other release, Yahan Sabki Lagi Hai, unfortunately found no audience.


Hunterrr, a film about a self-confessed skirt tail chaser, remained below average. The film collected Rs 7.85 crore in its first week.


Dilliwali Zaalim Girlfriend showed poor performance with collections of Rs 3.7 crore in its first week and no further prospects.


The Anuskha Sharma starrer NH10’s first week figures were Rs 19.85 crore. The film has added Rs 7.2 crore in its second week to take its two week tally to Rs 27.05 crore. This being an open week, NH10 may be able to sustain and add a few crores more to its tally.


Dirty Politics managed to add about Rs 10 lakh in its third week to take its three week total to Rs 6.6 crore.


Dum Laga Ke Haisha makes the most of its status of being the only family fare catering to all kind of audience as well as facing poor oppositions. The film maintains steady collections of Rs 2.37 crore in its fourth week to take its four week tally to Rs 28.07 crore.


Badlapur: Don’t Miss The Beginning has added a symbolic Rs 8 lakh in its fifth week to take its five week total to Rs 48.75 crore.
