Amitabh Bachchan’s Shamitabh has collected around 4 – 4.25 crore on its opening day at the box office, as per early estimates. The film has performed well in the South, where Dhanush commands a good fan following.
At other places, the film opened slow and didn’t show much growth through the day. As expected, multiplex business was better as compared to single-screens. Rajasthan has collected around 15 lakhs on Day 1 as per early estimates. C.P and C.I circuits were dull too. Mumbai was better than north India.
Tomorrow will be crucial for a multiplex film like Shamitabh. Bachchan’s last few films like Bhoothnath Returns and Paa showed tremendous growth both on Saturday and Sunday. The reports for Shamitabh isn’t close to as good as Paa, so it remains to be seen where the film goes in the long run.
Shamitabh is yet another Eros International film. They haven’t got the economics of their films right for more than a year now.
Note: The above collections are early estimates only. Official figures will be published in the noon.
So was your prediction wrong?
I hope eros have got their economics right for badlapur coz the film does’nt looks much costly neither it requires but i don’t wanna see indicine saying badlapur needs 70-80crs to break even…eros plz keep ur bizzare tactics aside.
My estimate: 4.5 crores
5.5 cr i think….
That’s impressive!! Big b and Danish starrer….AMITJI star power for his age is just so astonishing!!
What’s with people posting their own early estimates? Based on what?
@Sidcinemafan, no chance of 5.5 cr. Our 4 – 4.25 crore estimate is what we expect the official collection to be.
where is Baby’s 3rd friday collections?
I said it few days back that shamitabh will collect around 4crs…
i did not hope that it will get that much too!!!
i think the show is over for the oldie and the thinnie..as expected and predicted by me this film will also fold itself today
Babys 3rd friday collection pls
I am watching today
Atleast 50cr lifetime collection… Make it hit god…
Shamitabh has fared poorly on day one with collections likely to come in at around the 3 crore nett range. These collections also because South India has done much better than the rest of the country. Mysore and Tamil Nadu / Kerala are decent and have recorded better figures than the Hindi circuits.
The figures of Mysore and Tamil Nadu / Kerala combined could be as much or even more as the combined figures of Delhi/UP and East Punjab when the final figures come in.
This is a rare scenario and not a good omen for the film as you these type of films have to perform in multiplex dominated Mumbai, Delhi and Punjab to survive at the box office.
this is what boxofficeindia has to say but indicine is always ahead… ha ha ha .. as usual pack of lies and promoting even the ant story
4 cr is 99.99% true i think..
btw Indicine what is final overseas nd worldwide total of Hny after egypt release??BOI showed overseas at 17 million plus means had it crossed 100 cr in overseas??
please update about it.
@ indicine u got it wrong again
official collection are 3.25 crores almost 25 percent variance from ur estimates
THANK GOD #SALMAN n #SRK REJECTED THIS FILM!
I will wait for the review of Megha. Best reviewer after KRK.
highest trp getter and highest paid sattlite rights
Right now Sunny Leone has better box office pull than BigB. It is sad but that is the bitter truth.
1st weekend : 15 cr
1st week : 25 cr
Lifetime : 40 cr
this is good news for baby
i think shamitabh 35 cr lifetime, then roy 65 cr then badlapur 50 cr
