Ready is officially the first Blockbuster of 2011. The film has surpassed all expectations and has held-on pretty firmly during the weekdays. Although many trade pundits predicted huge drops Monday onwards, the Anees Bazmee directed film witnessed less than 50% drop from its first day of release (Friday).
Below is a day-to-day nett gross of Ready
- Friday – 13.25 crores
- Saturday – 12.75 crores
- Sunday – 16 crores
- Monday – 7 crores
- Tuesday – 6.75 crores
- Wednesday – 6.25 crores
- Thursday – 6 crores (estimate)
Total Week 1 – 68 crores
Ready has beaten the lifetime business of Akshay Kumar’s Tees Maar Khan in 6 days! In week 2, the Salman Khan dominance at the box office is expected to continue. The film has no real competition and Golmaal 3’s record lifetime total (107 crores) is likely to be broken.
