It took a flying start on Friday with a collection of Rs. 9.50 crores, making it the fifth biggest opening of the year 2011.
The business went up on Saturday and the film made Rs. 10.5 crores approx. The Sunday was exceptional with the collection of Rs. 12 crore.
The Dirty Picture wrested away a lot of viewership from the previous week’s release Desi Boyz which witnessed a steep decline in its collection.
The collections of Desi Boyz have been strictly average, making it neither a hit, nor a flop.
