After soaring through the Box Office Windows in its 1st extended week, Bang Bang is finally witnessing some huge drop at the domestic box office. The Hritik Roshan and Katrina Kaif starrer did a business of just 4 Crores on its 2nd Friday at the Indian box office. This brings up the box office total of Bang Bang at 139.45 Crores post its 2nd Friday at the box office. Considering the movie is made on a Royal budget the numbers it has achieved yet might not be pretty impressive for the producers. If the movie remains somewhat static at the box office over its 2nd week it is sure to touch the 150 Crores benchmark. However, it looks like Bang Bang will not achieve the lifetime box office collections it would have targeted.
The other release last week was the critically acclaimed Haider. Not a film for the masses, Haider released on a lower screen space when compared to Bang Bang. The Shahid Kapoor starrer also witnessed a drop on its 2nd Friday doing a business of just 1.85 Crores. Haider now stands at a domestic box office total of 43.21 Crores. Considering the positive word of mouth publicity for Haider, the movie is expected to do better over the weekend and achieve the 50 Crores target. Haider, is made on a limited budget and hence the box office numbers are not all that bad for the Bollywood flick.
The fact that none of the Bollywood or Hollywood Releases this week show any promise might come as a boon for both Haider and Bang Bang.
