The Bhatts’ latest presentation Murder 2 is rocking the box office despite mixed reviews and the repetitive slag of being plagiarized.
The movie raked in a very good collection in its opening weekend. It took off on Friday on a positive note with a collection of a little over Rs 7 crores. The Saturday was equally good though there was a slight dip to Rs 6.5 crores. On Sunday the figure notched up to Rs. 8.75 crores. Summing it up, the weekend collection of the film is more than Rs 22 crores, which is second best to Salman Khan’s film Ready.
The Bhatts are obviously having the last laugh despite all the flak the film got for being a copy of the Korean film ‘The Chaser’.
In comparison, Salman Khan’s first production Chillar Party fared just average. The film had a listless start on Friday with a paltry collection of Rs. 45 lakh. On Saturday the figure went up to Rs. 1.10 crore and sloped to 1.60 crore on Sunday. However, the film has got critical praise.
Meanwhile, Delhi Belly has emerged a SUPERHIT with a collection of Rs. 48.75 crore nett in its ten-day run at the box office.
The coming Friday would see the release of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara which is expected to fetch a good opening at the box office.
