After a dull start on Friday, Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji picked up on Saturday and Sunday, but movie couldn’t do much dhamaal at the box office. This Madhur Bhandarkar film had an average first weekend of around Rs 14.50 crore approx.
Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji collected Rs 3.95 crore approx on Friday, Rs 4.85 crore approx on Saturday and Rs 5.75 crore approx on Sunday. Though it’s decent till now, as per trade reports, a big jump and good second weekend is possible for the film because there are no major releases this week except Yeh Saali Zindagi.
Coming to Dhobi Ghat, the movie collected Rs 13 crore in its first week but saw a major drop on eighth day. The movie may have to struggle to touch the Rs 15 crore mark. This Aamir Khan production though not successful in India is well received at the overseas market. The film collected around $950,000 (Rs 4.25 crore) from all the overseas market that includes United Kingdom, North America, UAE and Australia.
Another film that is doing extremely well overseas is Yamla Pagla Deewana. The collection of the movie has nearly touched $2.5 million (Rs 11.25 crore) from all markets. The movie is reportedly doing superb business in Canada which can be compared to the hits like Singh is Kinng, 3 Idiots and Mel Karade Rabba (Punjabi).
