The Official Box office collections of Rohit Shetty’s Bol Bachchan is here and it confirms that the film is nearing Rs 100 crores, of course if the upward trend continues. The film has already netted Rs 68.5 crores in its first week and is still counting. This confirms the status of Rohit Shetty as comedy king and his super hit and magical combo with Ajay Devgn. It also marks the comeback of Abhishek Bachchan at the box office as the actor delivered a very fine performance. His comic timing has been hailed by critics and the public alike.
BB is Rohit-Ajay biggest opener as it netted Rs 43.10 crores and maintained its run throughout the weekend, thus adding Rs 23.62 crores.The good track record of Ajay Devgn-Rohit Shetty ensured that the film has a terrific opening on the first day and it proved to be a ‘zabardast’ movie that touched a chord with the masses. The Abhisek- Ajay chemistry rocked and both actors silly banters proved to be a major hit. Moreover, Abhishek Bachchan superb comic timing wooed the audience. Last but not least, Amitabh Bachchan is the greatest superstar the country has produced and his Bol Bachchan item song only ensured that the masses flocked to theatres.
The break up of figures are as folllows for the eight days prior to its release:
Friday (First Day): 11.25 cr (early Estimates)
Sunday: 14.75 cr
Monday: 6 cr
Tuesday: 5.75 cr
Week 1: 61 cr
2nd Friday: 3.25 cr
The estimates clearly shows that the movie is money spinner and a clear winner at the Box Office. There is no reason to think that the Ajay-Abhi starrer will not reach the coveted 100 crores at the box office. However, the movie might be slightly affected by Cocktail which is an equally good movie. But, who says that two good movies cannot exist side by side?
