Delhi Belly collections have exceeded expectations for Week 1 and the film is easily Imran Khan’s biggest opener ever. Business is outstanding all over, even at places where it wasn’t expected to do so well. Collections in Mysore territory is better than any film in 2011 (yes, collections are higher than Ready too).
According to BOI, the nett collections for Week 1 is Rs 36.45 crores. But most trade sources quote an even higher figure, somewhere close to the Rs 40 crore mark. The official numbers haven’t yet been revealed by Aamir Khan productions.
- Friday – 6.05 crores
- Saturday – 7.10 crores
- Sunday – 8.10 crore nett
- Monday – 4.60 crores
- Tuesday – 4.05 crores
- Wednesday – 3.50 crores
- Thursday – 3.05 crores
Week 1 Total – 36.45 crores
For an English film, dubbed in Hindi, these are huge numbers. Almost everyone in the trade expected Delhi Belly to do and easy beat competition from the other release last week – Buddha Hoga Tera Baap – But going past the first week collections of Double Dhamaal and beating the collections of Ready in a territory was something that was totally unexpected.
Yet another winner for Aamir Khan Productions, the man behind the company is a genius and as of now whatever he touches is turning into box office gold!
Murder 2 this week is unlikely to affect Delhi Belly, it should continue its good run for another week or so. If Murder 2 and Delhi Belly continue their good run, will it affect Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara? What do you think? Tell us below in the comments section
