Starring Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwanye Johnson, Fast And Furious 6 reportedly raked in an estimated Rs. 6 crore net on Friday. Add to it the collection of Rs. 1.85 crore from paid previews on Thursday. This is the third best start ever for any Hollywood movie in India. The only two Hollywood movies that fared better on the opening Friday are The Amazing Spiderman (Rs. 8 crore net) and Iron Man 3 (Rs. 6.75 crore net).
The response to Fast And Furious 6 ranges between 60 percent to 75 percent for both the English and the dubbed Hindi version.
In comparison, the Preity Zinta-Rhehan Malliek starrer Ishkq In Paris pales. The film by Prem Raj saw a response of just 10 percent at multiplexes. The reports have mostly been unfavorable and the chances of the film showing a grand turnaround in its collections over the weekend look slim.
The other two releases, Zindagi 50-50 and Hum Hai Raahi CAR Ke hardly made any impact at the box office.
Now, as the IPL draws to an end, we will see big releases coming from Bollywood, starting with the Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone starrer Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani next week.
