Mohit Suri’s Aashiqui 2 is the first runaway success of the year so far. The intensely romantic film starring newcomers Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor is faring well across the nation, even at places where it didn’t open well last Friday.
Surprisingly, collections improved over every weekday (except Thursday) and the film also benefitted from ‘May Day’ a holiday in most parts of the country.
After putting up strong numbers in it’s first weekend (Rs 19.25 crore net), the film collected approximately 16.2 crore over the weekdays to collect Rs 35.45 crore (approx) in it’s first week at the domestic box office.
The film wasn’t released in overseas markets like US, UK and Australia.
Aashiqui 2 Collections Week 1 – Day wise
- Friday – 5.75 crore
- Saturday – 6.25 crore
- Sunday – 7.25 crore
- 1st Weekend – 19.25 crore
- Monday – 3.9 crore
- Tuesday – 3.8 crore
- Wednesday – 5 crore (holiday)
- Thursday – 3.5 crore
- Week 1 Total – 35.45 crore (approx)
According to Mahesh Bhatt, Aashiqui 2 cost Rs 16 crore (9 cr budget + 7 cr P&A) and most of the investment was recovered in it’s first weekend itself. If the film holds up in it’s second weekend, it could well be the first Bollywood ‘BLOCKBUSTER’ of 2013.

Fantastic. First superhit/bb of year is for sure. I think 60 cr are confirmed.
this movie deserves to be a blockbuster.
Bhatts are the most clever film makers in the Bollywood. They avoid shooting in foreign countries and their films do not include intense computer graphics which keeps their film budget low. Unlike KJo and Abbas-Mustan movies whose films have sky high budgets due to glamour, babes, foreign locations etc. Way to go Bhatts!
Wow great news it will be blockbuster sure.
over hyped movie, nothing new, same romantic story with new ending , popular music caused so much of collections

@Kiri JTHJ collected 255 crores gross worldwide.Now i will see how much this movie will collect?Surely it will not even cross 60 crores which was the budget of jthj.Do not compare a small movie like Aashiqui 2 with big films.

Hi danish!I think not only jthj u r also dumbo.jthj is perfect for ponds lotion ad.if r u a fan of srk u have to belive that its all over srk.jthj was only running for tribute to yash ji nothing more.but aditya did a spactacular job being a new comer & u will be a foll if u think jthj is better than ashiqi 2.a2 is the first film in btown which inclueds such newcomers with a great hit.jthj is not innocent romantic film but a dirty film.so a2 is the best romantic film forever.aditya did a gr8 job.
A2 is far better thn jthj…really it is a big hit 4 newcmrs…
