Bang Bang is struggling to cross the nett business of Singham Returns. After three weeks it is around 25 lakhs nett less and it may not even cover this much as it was playing on very few screens in week four. Even if it does go ahead in terms of nett business, the distributor share of Singham returns will still be more.

The main reason why Singham Returns has done better is Mumbai circuit as can be seen below, the gap between these two films in this circuit is simply huge. The difference is coming from Gujaraat where Singham Returns proved to be a blockbuster and Bang Bang was damp squib

Bang Bang was better in the South be it the multiplexes or singles screens of Nizam/ Andhra (not including Marathawada where Singham Returns was better), Mysore and Tamil Nadu/Kerala. East was also better for Bang Bang but that was due to and extended holiday week.

Below are the three week figures of Bang Bang and lifetime figures of Singham Returns from each circuit in India.

SINGHAM RETURNS - 140.02 crores

BANG BANG - 139.74 crores

Mumbai 39,29,00,000 57,44,00,000

CP Berar 6,90,00,000 9,41,00,000

LOL..BOI. Anyway i think they posted that BB will close around 141cr nett. Then why did they decrease again. And they didnot add regional collections as usual
Regional collections will not be added at all. Plus this is only 3 weeks collection. They haven't added 4th week & they've estimated 141cr lifetime after the end of Bang Bang's run.
hmm. BOI doesnt add regionals ever. But it became quite common for biggies off late. If they are earning very less you can neglect. But i think anything over 4-5cr cant be neglected. And obviously K3,D3 did much more in the regional versions compared to some small circuits, so whats wrong to add them. Distributors get share from it also.
You got to keep it same for every film. You're talking about K3, D3.. Even Maine Pyaar Kiya, Hum Aapke Hain Koun, Hum Saath Saath Hain, Diwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Raja Hindustani, Vivah, Dil Se, Taal, Duplicate were all dubbed to south languages... Nobody added the regional collections then!!!

The criteria should be kept same for all. Not all films get dubbed. If a straight Hindi film collects 50cr, another Hindi film with dubbed versions collects 60cr while collecting 40cr from Hindi version, it doesn't mean it's ahead right? It still fell short of 10cr in Hindi version.

Yup it's Mumbai which played the major spoilsport for Bang Bang. And it's Mumbai which became the major savior for Singham Returns.
