Badlapur has collected Rs 24.25 crore in its first weekend at the box office. The film started well on Friday, showed excellent growth in business on Saturday and held strongly on Sunday even though it was competing against the India vs South Africa cricket match.
Last week’s release Roy had dropped by around 35% due to the India – Pakistan match, but this week the drop was less than 10% – like we mentioned in our report in the noon yesterday.
Badlapur is carrying good reports, which should help the film sustain well on Monday too. The morning shows today have started well, the drop is around 35-40% at multiplex centres that we tracked.
The Varun Dhawan film has already recovered around 50% of its investment in 3 days and has the best chance of going on to be the first clean hit of 2015. Varun’s first three films – Student Of The Year, Main Tera Hero and Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania were all major hits at the box office. If Badlapur does succeed, he will be the first mainstream actor in recent memory to deliver 4 back-to-back hits to begin his career.
Table below has the day wise box office collections of Badalpur. This page will be updated everyday with latest collections.
Day 4 Update: Badlapur has passed the dreaded Monday test with flying colours. The film has collected Rs 4.25 crore, which is a normal drop for Monday as multiplex sell tickets for a cheaper price during the weekdays.
Day 5 Update: Badlapur continued its steady run on Tuesday as the drop seems to be around 10% as per early estimates. The film has collected around 3.75 – 4 crore on Tuesday. The actual figures will be updated in the morning.
