Ranbir Kapoor's latest movie Barfi, which has been directed by Anurag Basu, has once again kept the bells ringing at the Box Office in India in the second week too. The romantic comedy film gave a tough time to new release Heroine starring his cousin Kareena Kapoor. With its extraordinary collection in 14 days, it is now moving close to Rs 100 crore mark in the domestic business centres.
Trade experts predicted that Kareena Kapoor's Heroine, which hit the screens on September 21, would send down the collection of Barfi. But it was vice versa. Barfi continued to rock at the collections in the second week. It badly affected the business of Heroine, which collected Rs 37 crores in the first week.
Barfi had done wonderful business in the first week with its seven-day collection reaching Rs 58+ crore at the domestic Box Office. It fell down by 50% in the second week, but it was still good, when compared to Heroine. It added Rs 28.55 crores nett in the second week to its 14-day total Rs 87.15 crores nett. Its week 2 breakup is Rs 4.1 cr on Fri, Rs 6 cr on Sat, Rs 7 cr on Sun, Rs 3.25 cr on Mon, Rs 3.10 cr on Tue, Rs 2.6 cr on Wed and Rs 2.5 cr on Thu.
However, Barfi is going to be the next movie to join Rs 100 crore club and it needs Rs 12.85 crores to surpass this big mark. The film is now facing big threat from OMG Oh My God and Kamaal Dhamaal, which have hit the screens today. Will Barfi beat them and cross Rs 100 crore mark in the third week.
