Ra.One's collections at the box office dropped in the second week. Though Ra.One might not be able to beat Aamir Khan's 3 Idiots or Salman Khan's Dabangg and Bodyguard, it might be able to outbeat Salman Khan's Ready collections in the local market in the third week, today being a bank holiday.
Considering the fact that Ra.One is one of the most expensive films to be made in the Indian film industry, stakes are very high. Though Eros and Shahrukh Khan claim that the investment they made for Ra.One amounts to not more than Rs 135 crore, trade sources claim that the investment has been a whooping Rs 162 crore.
Listed below are approximate net collections of some of the highest box office grossers in Bollywood.
3 Idiots – Rs. 215 crore
Dabangg – Rs. 143 crore
Bodyguard – Rs 150 crore
Ready - Rs 122 crore
Ghajini – Rs. 118 crore
Singham - Rs 122 crore
Ra.One - Rs 112 crore
Ra.One might be in a position to cross Ready's Box office collection of Rs. 122 crore this weekend. However, since Ranbir Kapoor's much anticipated film Rockstar will release today, SRK's Ra.One might face severe competition!
Meanwhile, the famous Shahrukh-Salman battle over box office supremacy continues...
