Amitabh Bachchan and his girls Taapsee Pannu, Andrea Tariang and Kirti Kulhari are surely painting the B-town ‘Pink’. The movie, which has been running strong on positive word of mouth, has crossed the 50 crore mark at the box office and how!
In its week two, the Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury directorial collected Rs. 3.15 Cr on Friday, Rs. 5.49 Cr on Saturday and Rs. 6.57 Cr on Sunday. ‘Pink’s total now stands at Rs. 51.12 Cr.
The Riteish Deshmukh and Nargis Fakhri starrer ‘Banjo’, despite the entire buzz around it, failed to make some noise at the box office in its first weekend. The Ravi Jadhav directorial collected Rs. 1.72 Cr on Friday, Rs. 1.95 Cr on Saturday and Rs. 2.25 Cr on Sunday; taking the total to Rs. 5.92 Cr.
‘Banjo’ isn’t the only last Friday release that has disappointed at the box office. The critically acclaimed Leena Jadhav film ‘Parched’, which stars Radhika Apte, Surveen Chawla and Tannishtha Chatterjee, has only managed to collect Rs. 62 lacs so far.
It’s been a while since we saw a 100 Crore blockbuster (last was Akshay Kumar’s ‘Rustom’)! Will this week’s release ‘M. S. Dhoni: The Untold Story’ manage to do the impossible and get Sushant Singh Rajput his first 100 Crore Club movie?
