Gone are the days when films used to run for 25 – 50 – 75 weeks or more. In the modern era, it’s all about the first weekend. The multiplex boom all over the country has resulted in 2500+ screen releases, with multiplexes squeezing in 15 – 18 shows a day. A major chunk of the investment is recovered in the first week itself, and even the biggest of blockbusters are out of most theaters in less than a month.
However, the most crucial day, especially for non-holiday releases, is it’s first Sunday. A decent growth in business on Sunday, usually means the film has been accepted.
Below is a list of films that hold the record for the highest collections on it’s first Sunday.
|#||Movie||Weekend Collections||Main lead|
|1.||Ek Tha Tiger||20.5 crores||Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif|

Note: Some films had extended 4 or 5 day weekends, due to which the first Sunday was not the third day after release. In some cases, it wasn’t the first holiday of the weekend either.
Records mean salman khan..
Ya record of giving continuous hits mean SRK.
ra.one on its first sunday ( & also 5th day after release ) collects huge amount despite all negative reviews……b’coz SRK’s fan following r huge…..so SRK don’t worry for boxoffice collection…..now his all movies don’t get label of FLOP…..mark my word…
payal same like bodyguard sunday is the 5 day and the collections u can see above ok
sallu bhai rocksssss…………
@sk ra one collected that amount even when negativity was 90% against it while wom of bg was moderate in multiplex n highly positive in single centres……also not to forget above collections of don 2 n ra one are hindi only and all india sunday collections was
Don 2-19 crs(1.5 cr 4m regional ver.)
Ra one-15.5 crs
all the record shatter on diwali 2013 with arrival of krishh3…
ask salman khan to do atleast 1 good film,
he always depends on remakes and item numbers,salman is not a actor he is more like a model who showcases body and focuses on song more than script. Now for ek that tiger he must be saying aditya chopra to include hit songs nahi toh mera imaage ka falooda banega… log jante nahi ki mera film item songs se chalta hai..
The reason why salman’s movies grossing more these days coz SRK’s movies are for the
intelligent audience, so that excludes half of India.
Salman Khan cant act. He’s just enjoying fluke successes same like akshay kumar enjoyed 3 yrs back…
and one more thing—salman ko bolo oversees me SRK se zyada kamake dikhaye..
indicine pls block these lallu khan vs halku khan comments. come on ppl accept the fact that srk is over now and even though sallu’s movie’s are mindless & bad to some extent , still they make huge money. and this discussion is NOT abt lallu or haklu, so kindly dont provoke others!!
and it’s not fair to say that sallu’s fans are only tapori & rickshaw-walas. if that would have been the case none of his movies would have been blockbusters.
his movies have been doing phenomenally well in both mass circuits & circuits full of multiplexes.
even i dont like sallu’s movies but it is a fact that his last 3 movies have been BB. so i respect him as a star atleast if not as an actor.
anyways i hope his Ek Tha Tiger will once again make me like him.
Everybody has forget that movie sells not based on heroes,but by its content.When these heroes comes under movie with some meaning,absolutely the movie will run.Otherwise nobody shit cares about SRK or Aamir or Hrithik or Salman.Even Ranbir kapoor is able to select quite interesting scripts,then what’s use of these SRK & Salman as being a superstar who are not able to pick up the script!!!!!!
media creatd tid frenzy of 100cr.before no one card about ta collections only ta content of ta movie matters.but now who cares about ta content its all about ta collections&100cr. club!
I like both srk nd salman but i love srk he is the legend.
@sunny just shut your mouth salman movie is not working in multiplexes the gross of bodyguard in multiplexes is 68 crores and don2 is 94 crores just you are a lallu fan do not means you will say anything and pretending that you are not his fan but still buttering around the full columns making cheese of him praising him endlessly for single theatre movies do not make any sense
it is the end of era for other actors as the era of salman has begun.
megha 68cr kaya tumhe kam lag raha he,aur waisev BG earn in multiplex 70cr & in single screens 80 cr where don2 collects 84 cr & 25 cr respectively,so megha u just shut up.sallu rokz
@adil: u r tlking abt songs den i mst remind u dat SRK used AKON’s song still his movie struggld for hit status :P
@indicine: if u deleted mine cmmnt den u mst hv alslo deleted adil’s cmmnt
@megha: atlest sunny is bttr dan u, he is not taking any1’s side
BG,Ra.One released on normal Friday.
Sunday would have been no doubt 25Cr+
Don2 deserves special mention..being anti-massy..it features in top 3
only king khan srk
chammak challo item song hi tha na… To ab bolo.
Ek tha tiger salman ki chandi chok to chyna hogi surely
rowdy rathore rocks
Akshay kumar the king of bollywood and baap of all khans
Aamir always no 1
Srk and salman fans are fighting for second becuase they know that akshay in first place,no more talk look the table.
