Box office: Highest Opening Day Collections 2013

With the fantastic start that Aashiqui 2 has taken at the domestic box-office, we compare the Aditya Roy – Shraddha Kapoor starrer with some of the other biggies that have released this year.

The opening of Aashiqui 2 was better than Chashme Baddoor, which did well at multiplexes and had a solo-release. Aashiqui 2 clashed against Iron Man 3, which affected the film’s multiplex business. But the footfalls (tickets sold / number of people who watched) on it’s opening day was higher than much-bigger films Ek Thi Daayan, Chashme Baddoor and Special 26.

Overall, for a film made on a reasonably low budget, with no face value and released on 1100 screens, Aashiqui 2 has exceeded expectations on Day 1.

With films like Jism 2 and now a clean love story like Aashiqui 2, the Bhatts have proven yet again that they are no longer reliant on Emraan Hashmi as far as the opening of their films is concerned.

  • 1. Race 2 – 14.5 crore
  • 2. Himmatwala – 11 crore
  • 3. Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola – 6.7 crore
  • 4. Special 26 – 6.25 crore
  • 5. Ek Thi Daayan – 6.06 crore
  • 6. Aashiqui 2 – 5.5-5.75 crore (approx)
  • 7. Chashme Baddoor – 5.3 crore
  • 8. Anybody Can Dance – 4.65 crore
  • 9. Murder 3 – 3.8 crore
  • 10. Kai Po Che – 3.75 crore
  • 11. Zila Ghaziabad – 3.5 crore
  • 12. Commando – 3.5 crore
  • 13. Nautanki Saala – 3.3 crore
  • 14. Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster – 3.25 crore
  • 15. Jolly LLB – 3 crore


  • Excellent opening day for Aashiqui. But will it last beyond the weekend? I have been hearing good things about the movie. So will catch it on Tuesday.

  • @g I somewhat agree with you. But as OUATIMA is going to clash with CE, it’s opening might be lower than Krrish 3 which has a solo release.

  • krrish 3 opening would be much bigger than ce,ouatima , dhoom 3 opening might take over krrish 3 but k3 opening would be in 2nd no. for sure atleast , mark my words !!! hrithik rules…….

  • @g, mental is not releasing this year, krrish 3 and dhoom 3 are branded movies with huge stars, everybody are waiting for it from many years , no other film can cross their opening .

  • This year the movies with highest opening will be
    1/2:krrish3/dhoom3-most awaited movies in 2013

    3:chennai express-will win over ouatim2 becoz of stardom of srk,rohit setty,vishal-shekhar music
    4.ouatim2-bcoz of clashing with ce
    5.yeh jawani hai dewani-not sure

  • @sumeet plz wait for nov 3 k3 will be diastar like kites and ra1. I am 100% sure D3 opening day col more than 40cr and amir create 300cr club with d3. This year some films may join 200cr club but amir bhai create 200cr club. Hritic is a flop star gave just one super hit after 2006 and his no film cross 200cr till date. Ce opening will be 25cr and may cross 200cr and ouatim2 opening 18cr may cross 150cr. K3 will not cross 100cr as mental releasing 22 nov. K3 opening day col max 18cr just wait and watch.

  • @Romance express are you mad k3 1st day coll
    ll around 30-35cr mark my word and your tingu
    khans d3 ll collects max 20 just becoz of x mas

  • @tanguri plz respect amir khan who create 100cr club, 200cr club and this year he create 300cr club. And hrithik fan following nothing compare to the khans. K3 is only for kids not adult and mental is releasing on nov22. So my prediction the highest grosser of the year
    1 dhoom3
    2 ce or mental
    3 a film which get highly positive review as a non khan starer.

  • @romance express, tu fir aa gaya !!! let krrish 3 release and we will see if its a kids movie or an adult movie, till then keep your unholy and unwanted mouth shut up , you are nothing more than a hrithik hater, tere bol dene se krrish 3 bekaar nahi ho jayegi, banaya tune nahi, rakesh roshan ne hai.

  • @Romance Express, Don’t change ur id here till K3 releases & we’ll see.BTW as I have said before you are really very funny.

  • If D3 has a great script, it will shatter all records, except the opening day, as that will stay with Salman for ETT for atleast one more year.

    But, overall D3 (on condition, it will have great script) have chances of breaking the 250 crore barrier.

    If script is weaker it will make around 150+

    Second, would undoubtedly be Mental with around 150+ . It will depend only on Salman, nothing else matters, and if the script is superb, expect a 200 Cr. But to be realistic, i would keep it around 140 to 160 Cr.

    I can’t tell who will be third, because CE and OUATIMA are clashing, so also K3 is likely to clash with Besharam (Ranbir + Abhinav Kashyap of Dabangg fame can spring a surprise).

  • Krish3 will be the biggest hit of the year2013.
    Mark my word it will shattered all the records.
    It will easily cross 200 plus crores only in india.
    All time blockbuster hai mere bhaiyon …..
