Aamir Khan's home production Delhi Belly did a great business at the Box Office by earning Rs 26.15 crore in its first three days (Breakup: Fri 7.15 cr, Sat 8.25 cr, Sun 10.75 cr), while Amitabh Bachchan starrer family entertainer Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap grossed Rs 7.32 crore nett ( Breakup: Fri 1.90 cr, Sat 2.33 cr, Sun 3.09 cr), states the official figures issued by Viacom18.
Movie critic Taran Adarsh reasoned on his micro-blogging site, "Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap would've collected double/triple of what it has, had it averted clash with other films (Delhi Belly, Transformers). Would've got more screens also."
Anant Verma, director and business head, DT Cinemas told IANS that both the films (Delhi Belly, Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap) are doing great. He added, "however, Delhi Belly is slightly better as it has more shows than Bbuddah. Moreover, it caters to the young crowd, while Bbuddah.. is meant for family. Delhi Belly has an interesting concept and it has been promoted in such a way that the audience know what to expect from it."
Delhi Belly has managed to cover a big gap of its production cost (Rs 30 crores approx) in three days by earning Rs 26 crores. On the other hand Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap, a reasonable budget film of 21 to 22 cr (fetched Rs 14.75 cr Satellite and Music Rights), is expected to recover the left over amount during the business in the weekdays.
