Well, many have been arguing endlessly over the box office figures of Kambakht Ishq and Shahrukh Khan’s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.. To clear it up, we have the official numbers of both films.
Kambakht Ishq has just released, hence we only have the opening weekend numbers. The film has done exceptional business over the weekend with a net gross of almost 25 crores including the paid preview shows on Thursday.
The figures of SRK’s Rab Ne.. too were almost the same. It remains to be seen which film will end up the bigger earner at the Indian box-office.
Note:- Aamir Khan’s Ghajini isn’t even in the picture here, it was miles ahead of both films with a nett gross of more than 30 crores over the weekend.
Here you go, the official opening weekend and week-by-week figures of Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.
Opening weekend – 25 crores
Week 1 – 42.20 Crores
Week 2 – 24.60 Crores
Week 3 – 9.30 Crores
Week 4 – 4.90 Crores
Week 5 – 3.05 Crores
Week 6 – 1.25 Crores
Week 7 – 0.68 Crores
Week 8 – 0.30 Crores
Total – 86.28 (8 weeks)
Opening weekend – 24.50 crores
Week 1 – 42 crores
Week 2 – 10 crores
There is lack of clarity with the first week numbers of Kambakht Ishq. Different sources have different figures and our very own calculations too differed from the official numbers (mentioned below)
Week 1 worldwide – 100 crores
Week 1 India (gross) – 70 crores
Week 1 India (nett gross) – 42 crores
So going by the official figures, Kambakht Ishq and Rab Ne are on par. Can the Akshay Kumar film do business of 25 crores or more in Week 2? Lets wait and watch.
Week 2 update: Unfortunately, KI has recorded extremely poor collections in week 2, to take its two week total to 52 crores in India.
Keep following this topic, it will be updated every week as soon as the official figures are released!
