On Tuesday, Sanju brought in another 2.25 crore* and that has taken the film’s lifetime to 321.39 crore*. With this, the film has now gone past the lifetime numbers of Bajrangi Bhaijaan which had accumulated 321 crore. Incidentally, this happened on the day when the Salman Khan starrer was celebrating three years of release. The film had released on 17th July 2015 and now on 17th July 2018, its lifetime record has been broken by the Ranbir Kapoor starrer. What’s further special about this is the fact that while Bajrangi Bhaijaan was an Eid release, Sanju had no holiday whatsoever to support its run.
Ant Man And The Wasp is also slowing down as only 2 crore* more came in on Tuesday. The film’s collections stand at 23.80 crore* and though prior to release one would have expected a number in vicinity of this to be its lifetime collections, the fact that the opening was good resulted in higher expectations.
As for Soorma, the film collected 1.94 crore and though it is hanging on reasonably well, the collections are still not the kind that would warrant a big hold in the second week. The film’s total currently stands at 17.84 crore which means its first week total would be lesser than Diljit Dosanjh’s Phillauri. That film had brought in 22.68 crore in its first week and Soorma may fall short by around 1 crore.
All in all, a low day at the Box Office, especially after some very good run that had been evidenced for last few weeks. Hopefully things would perk up all over again when Dhadak arrives this Friday.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
