Despite mixed reviews, director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag gathered pace at the domestic box office during its first weekend run.

The movie had Rs. 1.05 crore net from the Thursday previews to give it a decent start on Friday. The morning shows on Friday did not draw many footfalls, but the crowds came in during the evening shows. And the trend has been upward since then. The Friday collection was Rs. 8.50 crore net. Saturday saw the collection rise to Rs. 10.70 crore net. Sunday was still better with an estimated Rs. 12 crore. The total first weekend aggregate of the film comes out at Rs. 32.25 crore.

The film got best audience response from Delhi and East Punjab. Even the collections from Mumbai, UP and Mysore are very good.

Director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is happy that the film has been accepted by the audience.

“It's a happy sign, it gives us more latitude now to break the glass ceiling. This could be a defining moment for all of us, as storytellers, filmmakers, technicians and actors,” Mehra said at a press conference to announce the success of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.

The film, starring Farhan Akhtar, is the biopic of the Indian athlete Milkha Singh. It also stars Sonam Kapoor and Pawan Malhotra.

Meanwhile, Vikramaditya Motwane’s Lootera, released the week before, rounded off its first week with 26.8 crore net.

The coming Friday would see the release of D-Day, Ramaiya Vastavaiya and Ship Of Theseus.
