MNIK opens across all multiplexes in Mumbai

Update on MNIK’s Mumbai release.

SRK’s My Name Is Khan, which has opened to a fantastic response all over the country, has now opened across all multiplexes in Mumbai according to NDTV, a popular television news channels.

The Shiv Sena threat, which helped create enough hype – not to mention free publicity across all television channels, seems to have only worked in favor of the Karan Johar directed film.

With Rave reviews and positive word-of-mouth, MNIK is expected to shatter box-office records over the weekend.

  • nauman adii now you must say that i was not lying . i was on the fact that the movie has not done anything very big but yes its efforts are commendable even after losing MUMBAI 8cr business.

    i have said already yesterday that atleast it will do 8cr business and at max 9cr business.

  • My Name Is Khan First Day Business

    Saturday 13th Febuary 2010 15.30 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    My Name Is Khan grossed an excellent 8 crore nett on day one as per early estimates. The film lost around 2.25 crore nett business on day one due to the problems in Maharashtra and a couple of other places where it was unable to get a clean release. The biggest losses were in Mumbai where it managed to release in just 50% of the theatres that were scheduled to release the film.

    Pune was another big casualty where it was not released at all. The first day losses from Mumbai and Pune are in the 1.50 crore nett region. A clean release would have given the film over 10 crore nett business on day one which would have made it the second biggest first Friday in history of Hindi cinema.

    The film has excellent business in Delhi/UP, East Punjab, West Bengal and South while Rajasthan is good and CP Berar, CI and Bihar just decent. Mumbai is also excellent wherever released but overall business in the circuit is not high as it is not running all over the circuit. Delhi/UP business is over 2 crore nett while Mumbai is under 2 crore nett and normally Mumbai is nearly double of Delhi/UP.

  • Mangalore, Feb 13: The Karnataka bandh called by Sri Rama Sene (SRS), in protest against the attack on SRS Supremo, Pramod Mutalik, on Saturday February 13, is turning violent in some places of the state. In Mangalore and Udupi districts, the policemen have been keeping a strict vigil, in an attempt to minimize damages.

    In the early hours on Saturday, the house of former Central Minister, Oscar Fernandes, was attacked, allegedly by the Sri Rama Sene activists, damaging the window glasses in the bargain. No one was at home during this attack. Simultaneous attack was also carried out on the residence of former state minister, Vasant V Salian’s house at Kaup. A Scorpio van and window panes of the house were damaged due to stone pelting in this case.

    Since the time an attack on Mutalik in Bangalore was carried out, allegedly by the Youth Congress leaders, SRS members have been targetting Congress Party offices, houses of their leaders, statues etc., at different parts of the state. The miscreants also have been targetting public transport at several places, including Udupi and Mangalore. At least ten buses were damaged in Udupi, Kulur, Kavoor, and other places around Mangalore.

  • Shree Ramsene gives bandh call in Karnataka on Saturday, police steps up vigil

    Bangalore, February 13: The BJP government in Karnataka on Friday put police on high alert ahead of Valentine’s Day to counter the threat by right-wing outfit Shri Rama Sene to disrupt the celebrations.

    The Rama Sene also gave a call for a Karnataka Bandh on Saturday to protest against the attack on its founder Pramod Mutalik allegedly by Youth Congress activists here on Thursday.

    As parts of Karnataka witnessed protests from Sene activists over blackening of the face of Mutalik at a debate organised by a local TV channel in an open air theatre, police took at least 100 Sene workers into preventive custody.

    Gearing up to meet the situation, Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa chaired a high-level Home Department meeting and directed police to take strict action against trouble makers.

    The attack on Mutalik witnessed a retaliatory action by Sene men, who allegedly placed a garland of slippers around the statue of veteran Congress leader late K H Patil in Hulikote in Gadag district, sparking tension.

    Police resorted to lathicharge to disperse irate Congress workers who went on a rampage, torched six buses and a police jeep at Hulikoti.

    Four Congress workers and 20 Sene men have been arrested in this connection and prohibitory orders clamped till Sunday.

    The bandh call given by Sene in Mangalore on Friday failed to evoke a good response, but sporadic incidents of stone pelting has been reported, police said.

    At least 25 Sene activists were arrested in Mangalore after they pelted stones on 10 buses, police said.

  • Hey srk fans rejoice yaar mumbai has opened d booking for mnik but single screen are doubtful but mouth publicity is just opp of critics now that’s d disadvantage for d movie.

    but it is doing extarordinary bussiness in overseas.

    nouman
    can u tell me , why overseas bussiness not include in 1st day bussiness of any movise.?????
    acoording boi, it did 8 cr in domestic market! so explain me some business funda’s!

  • I┬ájust watched the My Name Is Khan , I would rate it 4.5 , because it is very good movie but not the perfect movie.

    Story is good and gives a strong message but not much of interest.
    The aspect which makes movie good to wacth is SRK.

    His acting is eye catching and enjoyble.

    I wouldn’t do much praise of mnik . But it is worth a watch .

    I predicted 20 crore for the first day but it could have grossed 10 crores (actual 8 crores) .

    i predicted 300 crores liftime , so i think this could have changed to near 140 to 160 crores in india.

  • nitesh ur absolutely ryt,d picture is not as we r witnessing in media.coz im also wondering why d politicians went to see dis movie on d ist day itself.

  • Who knows is that 8cr right or that is also hypd is they did yesterday single screen is very very strong i think they have also included single screen coll

  • you may be right arshan they have reported super strong collections at single screens but the reality is totally different.

    and yes one more thing guys did you like my one liner

    “the film mnik starts as a burden and ends as a burden

  • Is Congress party and the TV channels the PR agents of Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan ?!!! It seems so going by the ludicrous coverage of the opening of MNIK yesterday. While the TV channels and critics went gaga over the so-called “thumbs up for SRK and flop for Shiv Sena”, some central ministers and Maharashtra CM went to the ludicrous lengths of asking the public to see the movie!!!! Ms Ambika Soni, Minister of I & B Minister, goes to the absurd length of saying it represents the “national view”. Whose national view – of a few critics and some multiplex going people who are interviewed on TV channels like NDTV and take part as invited audience in engineered TV discussions?? Will the Congress show similar response by deploying police force on a same scale for any other actor faced in a similar situation?? The answer is no, because it is the so-called proximity of SRK to Rahul Gandhi which is the reason behind the state machinery being placed at the disposal of M/S Johar and SRK so that they can make some money and so that they do not get saddled with another flop after duds like Kurbaan, Billu and Dulha Mil Gaya as they simply cannot afford another flop. This nexus needs to be completely exposed. The Truth is that the word of mouth about the film is not good at all as far as the aam junta is concerned. There is certaingly no way that it can beat the opening day collections of 3 Idiots or Ghajini which was the aim behind this whole engineered brouhaha. Already, to deflect attention from its uncertain fate, Johar/SRK have started talking about how they are walking the red carpet in Berlin (what Berlin)!!! It is sad that our government and the media fall a prey to manipulators like SRK and Johar, ending up furthering their personal agendas and fooling the public of this country.

  • guys i dont watch tv but watching those videos those by ndtv cnn ibn aajtak star plus i have to say that they are totally totally biased and infact promoting this film like what i am just not able to understand.

    even after that this film get 8cr opening and bigger fact the word of mouth is mixed and film will fall heavily karan and srk paid critics

  • this is wrong man srk is using this country to promote his film one side he says in support of pak player but dont bought them is this not a nonsense stuff.

    not even a single mediapersons is asking srk why he didnt buy pak player why he didnt raise his voice when injustice wa served to north indians but today he is a patriotic indian so frustrating all this because we all knew this is wrong.
    srk is patriotic only when his film release is around the corner

  • guys you say whatever about mnik , but this doesn’t change anything , still mnik is a very good movie and it is going blockbuster way…….

  • yes abroxy 8cr is very poor considering the critics ratings and even bigger publicity from congress bjp news channels.

    congreess govt is more attentive to release the film of srk in mumbai but not to protect the city from terrorsits.

    shame on you media
    shame on congress
    shame on all those persons who try to play with the sentiments of indians to make a bad film a hit

  • Adiii,
    when producer sold his movie to distributer then all business of movies goes to distributer. and mostly indian distributer and overseas distributors are different. And all movies make for indian audience , if a movie didnt work in india it declare flop doesn’t matter it got 50 cr overseas.
    about MNIK Fox is distributer for world wide so at this time they can include overseas collections as well , but it needs good business in india as well, which is minimum 70 cr for hit status and for clean hit it needs 75 cr with near to 44 cr DS.

    Abroxy 2 hrs ago friday collections were 12.5 cr and now 8 cr. very good keep it up.

  • ABroxy
    my expectation was 10 cr but due to shiv sena issue none of any oen could predict , 8 cr seems good if condition will settle down it will get 10 , 11 cr over se the weekend and it can close 50-52 1st week.
    lets see
    now me sleeping c u soon tomorrow.
    thx

  • NITISH I AGRRE WITH U…..SRK & KARAN R USING MIDIA…IF FILM MADE WEEL THEN FIRSTDAY COLLECTION WOULD BE 11-12CR NOT 8CR….NOW IT IS CLEAR…ITS A AVERAGE FILM
