The manner in which Mastizaade was panned all around, it had seemed that the film would completely crash on Monday, if not over the weekend itself. However, though there was a drop for sure, it wasn’t major enough to raise alarm bells. Tuesday too had reasonably okay collections, what with around 2.74 crore more coming in.
With this, the film is now in the vicinity of 23.5 crore*. The film would have to ensure that an average of 2 crore per day keep coming in so that it manages to retain some shows as it steps into the second week. The Sunny Leone starrer has primarily a week for itself and it would need to stretch as much as it can so that it can cross the 30 crore mark in the final run.
Meanwhile, Saala Khadoos is collecting on the lower side. It brought in around 1 crore* more and now stands around the 7.5 crore* mark. The film needed to actually keep at least Saturday numbers on for the weekdays as well so that there are good numbers registered eventually. One now waits to see how exhibitors retain the film in week to come, considering the fact that the biggie Ghayal Once Again is expected to arrive big.
*Final numbers awaited
