Undeterred by beating new releases like Cigarette Ki Tarah, Myoho and The Last Act, old releases like Khiladi 786 and Talaash have wonderful business at the Indian Box Office this week too. Khiladi 786 has topped collection chart, while Talaash landed in the second place in the country. The new releases have fetched negligible numbers at the desi Box Office.
Khiladi 786, which had collected Rs 52.55 crores nett at the domestic Box Office in its first week, kept the bells ringing at the desi market in the second week too. The Akshay Kumar and Asin starrer movie collected Rs 10.75 crores in the second weekend and raked in another Rs 6.75 crores on the weekdays. It has collected Rs 17.5 crores nett in the second week, taking its 14-day domestic total to Rs 70 crores nett.
Meanwhile, another old movie Talaash, which had raked in Rs 84.82 crores nett at the domestic Box Office in two weeks, has also done good business in the third week. The Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukherjee starrer movie collected Rs 5.04 crores in the third weekend and Rs 2.72 crores on weekdays. In the third week, the film has added Rs 7.76 crores nett to its 21-day total Rs 93.40 crores nett.
Whereas new releases Cigarette Ki Tarah, Myoho and The Last Act released in minimum number of screens on December 14 without much hype and promotions, and opened to a very poor response at the Box Office. Their business did not grow in the following days to. So they have turned flop shows with a meagre amount of collection.
However, Salman Khan's much-awaited movie Dabangg 2 has hit the screens today and opened to an earth-shattering response at the domestic Box Office. Trade experts feel that the Dabangg sequel will completely slow down the collection of Khiladi 786 and Talaash, which may not be able to cross Rs 100 crore mark in their life-time.
