Rs 350 cr in 17-day indomitable filmy 'Dangal'

MUMBAI: There is not much in the offing except, December 23 carry forward, Dangal. There was no release on 30th since it is a norm not to fall in the shadow of a major release like Dangal as well as to avoid the year end Friday where the New Year eve celebrations affect box office collections negatively.

The film enjoys the benefit of exemption from paying Entertainment Tax in states of Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Haryana and Chhattisgarh,

The first Friday also went blank as the one scheduled release, Coffee With D, could not hit the screens for whatever reasons. As it were, the first Friday is considered to be unfruitful for the box office since films released on this day usually go unnoticed.

*In such an event, Dangal kept making the most of its overwhelming popularity and positive word of mouth. The film went on shattering record after records.

-Dangal registered the highest first Sunday by collecting Rs 42.35 crore and crossed Rs 100 crore mark in three days to finish its opening weekend with an impressive Rs 106.95 crore.

-The film’s first week figures stopped just short of Rs 200 crore mark at Rs 197.55 crore.

-Again, the film had a terrific second Sunday (day 10) of Rs 31.27 crore to mark second weekend of Rs 72.93 crore to take its 10 day total to Rs 271.24 crore.

-The collections held on well as the film finished its second week with 115.96 crore and taking its two week total past 300 milestone crore at Rs 313.51 crore.

- With a healthy third weekend of Rs 31.89 crore, the film’s collections stand at Rs 345.4 crore in 17 days.

*Befikre has collected about Rs 10 lakh in fourth week to take its four week tally to Rs 59.6 crore.

*Kahaani 2 has added Rs 10 lakh in its fifth week taking its five week tally to Rs 30.8 crore.
