Even though Cocktail was a film targeted at the urban youth, it has still managed to achieve ‘outstanding’ collections in it’s first weekend.
After a strong opening day of 10.75 crores, business picked up on Saturday (12 crore nett) and while multiplexes were running at close to fun capacity on Saturday, the film showed decent growth on Sunday (13 crore nett) to take it’s opening weekend total to Rs 35.75 crore nett.
- It’s the 11th highest opening weekend in history, ahead of Golmaal 3, falling just short of Bol Bachchan.
- Cocktail’s weekend was also the 5th highest of 2012, below Rowdy Rathore, Agneepath, Housefull 2 and Bol Bachchan.
- It’s also the highest for a multiplex-targeted film. In comparison, Ek Main Aur Ek Tu – another similar film – did Rs 20 crores in it’s first weekend.
