Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh updated the box office figures of India’s Most Wanted on Twitter. “#IndiasMostWanted witnessed 44.29% growth on Day 2, but, ideally, the biz should’ve doubled since Day 1 was extremely low...

Sharing Aladdin’s box office figures, he wrote, “#Aladdin dominates, maintains a strong lead on Day 2... Faring much, much better than #Hindi releases, but it can do with higher numbers thanks to the merits and genre... Fri 4.25 cr, Sat 6.50 cr. Total: ₹ 10.75 cr Nett BOC. India biz. Gross BOC: ₹ 12.80 cr. All versions.”


The film showed lower opening collections than the other two. Sharing the opening collections of Vivek Oberoi-starrer PM Narendra Modi, Taran tweeted, “#PMNarendraModi had a lukewarm start in the morning, but picked up speed as Day 1 progressed... Evening shows witnessed better occupancy... Fri Rs 2.88 cr. India biz.” 

Aladdin emerged to be the biggest opener of the week with opening collections of Rs 4.25 crore. Updating the box office collections of the Will Smith starrer, Taran tweeted, “#Aladdin dominates... Emerges the first choice of moviegoers, eclipsing the biz of new films and holdover titles... Summer vacations + family-friendly content should ensure growth on Day 2 and 3... Fri Rs 4.25 cr Nett BOC. India biz. Gross BOC: Rs 5.06 cr. All versions.”


Meanwhile, Ajay Devgn, Tabu and Rakul Preet Singh’s romantic comedy De De Pyaar De continues to rule the box office even in its second week. Taran wrote about the film’s collections on Twitter, “#DeDePyaarDe gathers momentum on [second] Sat... Growth is decent, but it could’ve done with stronger biz since the word of mouth is extremely positive... Biz on [second] Sun is pivotal... [Week 2] Fri 3.58 cr, Sat 4.78 cr. Total: Rs 69.41 cr. India biz. #DDPD.”
