Once again Hollywood has proved its supremacy over Bollywood at the Indian box office. Tom Cruise’s new film Mission: Impossible-Fallout is way ahead of Sanjay Dutt-starrer Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 in terms of total money collected in first two days of their release.
As per Box Office India, MI6 has collected Rs 22 crore in first two days while Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 has garnered Rs 3.75 crore in the same time. This is when MI6 didn’t release in 3D in India. This also shows how the audience’s choice in terms of content is changing in the domestic market.
Healthy clashes are always welcome... Sure, the biz is bound to get divided, the fan-wars on social media will also aggravate, but well-made films will always find an audience — holidays or no holidays... Eventually, the content does the talking, right?— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) July 29, 2018
The film which is posing some threat for MI6 is Janhvi Kapoor-Ishaan Khatter’s Dhadak. The second week earnings of Dhadak now stand at Rs 58.19 crore. Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to twitter to announce the news and claiming that despite Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible’s sixth movie, the movie did well.
Timing a biggie’s theatrical release during #Diwali, #Eid, #Christmas and national holidays is a norm in our industry... Big-budget / event films often enjoy the freedom of having a solo release and an uninterrupted run for few weeks... But all this is changing now...— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) July 29, 2018
He wrote, “#Dhadak is back on track on second Sat... Growth on second Sat [vis-à-vis second Fri]: 54.02%... Expected to witness gains on second Sun too... [Week 2] Fri 2.61 cr, Sat 4.02 cr. Total: ₹ 58.19 cr. India biz.”
