|The 100 crore club is going to see a new entry soon, as Abbas Mustan’s film Race 2 continues its good run at the box office.
The film, starring Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez, Anil Kapoor and Ameesha Patel, got mixed reviews from critics, but has fared well at ticket windows so far.
After an opening weekend collection that exceeded Rs. 50 crore nett, the film held up at the box office throughout the week and the collections touched Rs. 76.1 crore nett. The film added another Rs. 15.5 crore to its kitty in the second weekend, taking its ten-day total to Rs. 91.6 crore nett. Trade pundits feel that if the good run of Race 2 continues, it will enter the 100 crore club before the coming weekend. We’ll keep you updated.
Meanwhile, among the new releases, David has fallen flat on its face with a measly collection of just Rs. 2.41 crore in the opening weekend. In comparison, Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroop fared much better.
Vishwaroop, the Hindi version of Vishwaroopam, released amid raging controversy and drew footfalls in good numbers. The film did a business of Rs. 1.89 crore on Friday. Its collection went up to Rs. 2.47 crore on Saturday and peaked on Sunday with Rs. 3.2 crore. The opening weekend total of the film stands at Rs. 7.56 crore.
The coming Friday would see the release of Akshay Kumar’s Special 26 and Prabhu Deva’s dance film ABCD - Any Body Can Dance.
