Things haven’t looked this good at box office in a long time. Four hit films in as many weeks! Yes, the latest release Singham, starring Ajay Devgan and Kajal Aggarwal, is on its way to become a hit at box office.
The film raked in the moolah in its opening weekend despite being taken off some theatres in Karnataka because of a few ‘objectionable dialogues’ that were later removed from the prints. The movie registered a collection of Rs. 9.03 crore on Friday. Its collection rose slightly to Rs. 9.67 crore on Saturday and peaked with Rs. 12.37 crore on Sunday.
The weekend aggregate is approximately Rs 31 crore, which makes Singham the second best opener of the year after Salman Khan’s Ready. Interestingly, Singham has got mixed reviews from the critics. Some have praised its raw energy while the others have labelled it a tiresome watch.
Meanwhile, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara continued its good run at theatres. The movie rounded off its first week with an excellent collection of Rs. 45 crore approx. The film is expected to hit the Rs. 70 crore mark at the end of its second week at theatres.
