Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani Box Office Updates

All box office updates of Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif’s Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani will be here.

Thursday – Several preview shows were held across the country and if the response, despite the India Australia cricket match, was anything to go by, Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani could be Ranbir Kapoor’s first career HIT – Saawariya flopped, Bachna Ae Haseeno was average, Wake Up Sid did above average business. So clearly Ranbir box office pull is increasing with each film.

Friday – Occupancy in several multiplexes in Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi were close to 70% for morning shows, which is fantastic. Initial reports suggest positive reactions from most of those who have already seen the film. The evening and night shows were houseful (100%) in almost all multiplexes in major cities.

Many believe the opening is as good as the top stars in the industry could achieve. If this turns out to be true then weekend collections could be anywhere between 20 – 25 crores. Can Ranbir achieve a 37 – 40 crore opening week, this early in his career? He possibly could, but it remains to be seen how much the crucial India Australia cricket match could affect collections on Sunday, which is a very important day for any new release.

If Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani does well on Sunday, sustains during the weekends, Ranbir would go past Shahid Kapoor,  Abhishek Bachchan and enter the big league!


Saturday : Not many predicted Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani to open as big as it has over the weekend. The business on Saturday was excellent and should be higher than Friday.  Should easily achieve HIT status, unless the cricket match on Sunday severely dents collections.

If Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani goes as expected on Wednesday and Thursday, it would be next only to Love Aaj Kal for the year. With a opening as huge as this, Ranbir Kapoor makes a smashing entry into the Top 5 – 6 stars in Bollywood, quickly going past his generation of stars like Shahid Kapoor, Imraan Khan and also the much older John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan.

Desperately in need of bankable stars, Bollywood looking for the next true blue superstar after Hrithik Roshan, can finally rejoice.
