Singham has opened to a great response at the box office and is now the second biggest grosser of the year after Ready. The collections were super-strong throughout the weekend at single screen theatres, but the multiplex business was slightly on the lower side.
Singham First Weekend Collections
- Friday – 8.5 crores
- Saturday – 9.5 crores
- Sunday – 12 crores
- Weekend Total – 30 crores
Better collections at single screens means the distributors share is higher, so the DS for Singham is around 16 crores for the weekend.
Singham has also fetched around 23 crores in Satellite Rights. So overall, even if it drops drastically during it weekdays, the investment has already been recovered. Just how big a HIT it goes on to be, remains to be seen.
Fifth success for Ajay Devgan in the last two years which includes 3 huge box office grossers – Once Upon A Time In Mumbai, Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge, Dil Toh Bachcha Hai Ji, Rajneeti and Golmaal 3.
