Talaash has collected Rs 46.5 – 47 crores in it’s first weekend as per early estimates. Below are the actuals for the weekend (final figures for Sunday will be updated shortly).
The Aamir Khan starrer opened well on Friday (13.43 cr), picked up by around 12% on Saturday and had an outstanding Sunday of Rs 18 crore nett.
- Friday – 13.43 crore
- Saturday – 15.29 crore (12.3% growth)
- Sunday – 18 crore (17.8% growth)
- First Weekend Total – Rs 46.72 crore
Aamir Khan’s last release, 3 Idiots, collected Rs 37.5 crore (excluding preview shows) in it’s first weekend at the box office.
Considering the genre of the film (limited appeal at mass centres), the weekend collections are very good. If the film holds up well over the weekdays, 65-70 crore first week looks likely.
