Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt's latest movie Raaz 3, the third installment in Raaz series, has turned out to be the biggest opener for Bhatts, Emraan Hashmi and Bipasha Basu at the Box Office in India. The horror film has shattered the records of Murder 2 and Jannat 2 at the domestic collection centres in the first weekend.
Vishesh Films' Raaz 3, which collected Rs 58 lakhs in the paid preview shows on Thursday evening, opened to a very good response at the Box Office with its occupancy ranging between an average of 75% to 85% at both single screens and multiplexes across the country on its opening day. The Emraan-Bipasha starrer movie collected Rs 10.47 crore nett on Friday. Bhatt's previous films had collected maximum Rs 8.5 crores on the first day and this is the highest figure for their movies so far.
Raaz 3 was expected to witness a big jump in its business at the Box Office on Saturday. It leaped, but not upto the expected level. It collected Rs 11.18 crores nett on the second day. The movie surely saw the actual big leap in its collection on Sunday. It raked Rs 13.79 crores nett on the third day taking its first weekend collection to Rs 36.02 crores nett. Trade experts call this an extra-ordinary performance.
However, Vishesh Films' previous big hit movies like Murder 2 and Jannat 2 had collected Rs 36.5 crores and Rs 35.55 crores, respectively, at the Box Office in the first week of their releases. Now, its latest production Raaz 3 has surpassed these collection marks in opening weekend itself. Will it cross Rs 50 crore mark in the first week?
