Badrinath Ki Dulhania had a strong hold on Tuesday after its big total on Monday. The film has grossed around 7 crore nett on Tuesday to takes its five day total to 61 crore nett apprx. The film still has benefit of Holi in some areas and those held up very well. The drop was around 30% in North and Central India where the collections are strong the after Holi while places like Mumbai and South dropped 50% from yesterday. At the moment the collections are not even down 50% from the first day which is very good but that post Holi factor is at play and the film will find a level over the next two days.
The highest first week of the year is Raees at 102 crore nett which is not out of reach for Badrinath Ki Dulhania but the film has crossed the first week number of a bigger film like Kaabil in just seven days and it could chase down the 72.98 crore nett first week total of Jolly LLB 2 which is the second highest of the year.
The Tuesday business ensures the film is a HIT and it may even cross the business of Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania in one week flat and even if it does not it will be very close. After the failure of so many sequels like Rock On 2, Force 2, Tum Bin 2, Kahaani 2 and Commando 2 finally one goes the right way.
