Queen is on a historic run at the Indian box office, as the film is faring better in its second week compared to its first. The big question now is, if the film can cross the 50 crore mark. It would be a major achievement if it does indeed manage to do so, because in the last 5 years only 3 Idiots has collected more than 5 times its first weekend business.
For example, 3 Idiots collected 40 crore in its first weekend (including paid previews) and finished with lifetime business of 202 crore, which is 5 times its first weekend total. Queen has collected Rs 9.96 crore in its first 3 days, and should it cross 50 crore, the trend would be similar to 3 Idiots.
Quite a few films like Vicky Donor, OMG! Oh My God, Band Baaja Baraat have done 4.5 to 4.75 times its first weekend, but very few films have actually managed to trend as well as 3 Idiots did. Queen could just be that film, as it is likely to be the first choice at multiplexes in the next couple of weeks.
Ragini MMS 2 releases in theatres this weekend and that film isn’t expected to be a huge draw at high-end multiplexes. There are a few small to medium budget films, including Atul Agnihotri’s O Teri releasing in the next two weeks, but unless one of those films carry extra ordinary reports, Queen will remain unaffected by new releases.
