Shahrukh Khan fails to beat Aamir Khan at box office
It was not expected but the late release of My Name Is Khan in Maharashtra, Mumbai particularly, caused the movie a loss of approximately Rs 2.75 to 3 crore. And thus the movie failed to beat last year’s super hit 3 Idiots, starring Aamir Khan.

As reported, the first weekend business of the Shahrukh Khan-starrer is estimated to be Rs 29.50 crore approx in India while the movie collected Rs 25 crore from the overseas market resulting in the grand total of Rs 54.50 crore. Whereas the overall first weekend collection of ‘3 Idiots’ was about Rs 56 crore. It grossed around Rs 37.50 crore approx in India and Rs 18.50 crore from overseas.

The mammoth figures establish the two movies as top runners in the box office race. Though ‘My Name Is Khan’ is creating ripples at overseas BO, on the home front the audience response is not as overwhelming as it was during the time of ‘3 Idiots’. In fact, the collection of ‘My Name Is Khan’ has started showing a drip on single screens.

Coming to Striker, the movie has managed to collect approx Rs 1.25 crore over the week, a flop. Ishqiya proved its mettle and did an average business in its second week. The film’s total collection is approx Rs 21 crore, including second week’s collection. However, the movie’s business would suffer because of ‘My Name Is Khan’.

This week’s major release is the Tabu-starrer comedy Toh Baat Pakki.
