Mohit Suri’s Aashiqui 2 continued it’s victorious run at the box office, as the film collected Rs 7.5-7.75 crore on Sunday as per early estimates. Based on the collections we have received from a few centres, the growth in business varies from 5-10% in metro cities to as high as 65% in Kanpur (from Saturday).
The film has fared very well at smaller centres, while business at metros was on the lower side due to Hollywood release Iron Man 3.
The 3 day weekend collections of Aashiqui 2 now stands at Rs 20 crore, which is the second highest for a film starring newcomers (after Student Of The Year which collected 28 crore in it’s first weekend).
Aashiqui 2 is likely to be the biggest ROI (return on investment) HIT of the year so far.
Day-wise collection breakdown below.
- Friday – 5.75 crore
- Saturday – 6.5 crore
- Sunday – 7.75 crore (estimate)
- Weekend Collections – 20 crore (approx)
Verdict: HIT (depending on how well it manages to sustain over the weekdays, the film could attain super-hit status)
