Andhadhun has held very strongly on the weekdays as it collected over 26 crore nett in week one. The weekend collections of the film were low but it has made up ground on the weekdays and continue to its strong run in week two. The film finished the week on Thursday with better collections than the first day.
The film remains a metro a film as collections outside the main metros are not good. It is being driven by Mumbai, Pune and Bangalore with the collections in Pune being the stand out and in the second week it could be beating many of the big films in this city looking at how the first week has gone.
The first week collections are in the range of films like 102 Not Out and Hitchki and lifetime should be in the range of these films but with the dull pre diwali period to come where there will not be many releases it could do better than those two films. Also it will get the boost of Durga Puja holidays in the East from Monday onwards which will push the collections in Kolkata. The first week collections of Andhadhun are as follows.
Friday - 2,35,00,000 apprx
Saturday - 5,00,00,000 apprx
Sunday - 7,00,00,000 apprx
Monday - 3,50,00,000 apprx
Tuesday - 3,00,00,000 apprx
Wednesday - 2,75,00,000 apprx
Thursday - 2,50,00,000 apprx
TOTAL - 26,10,00,000 apprx
Loveyatri grossed a poor 10 crore nett in week one and is out as it faced rejection from the paying public. Salman Khan films had another film with newcomers a couple of years back Hero which is a remake of the 1983 blockbuster of the same name and although that film also did not do well it was far better than this film. That film managed to open well and managed to do over 30 crore nett business which actually looks a good total now with newcomers.
Venom had an average first week of 23 crore nett. The film had opened well and although has held fairly well it could not push up over the weekend which would have added a few more crore to its total. The weekend push may not have come as the metro crowd preferred Andhadhun rather than Venom.
