Hindi movie Table No 21 starring Paresh Rawal, Rajeev Khandelwal and Tena Desae in leads, has done an average collection at the Indian Box Office in the first weekend. The Aditya Datt directed film has landed in the second place in the business chart beating other new releases like Dehraadun Diary, Dekha Jo Pehli Baar, Meri Shadi Karao and Rajdhani Express. It has also affected the business of Salman Khan's Dabangg 2.
Table No 21 was a much-awaited movie and the makers of the film have done massive promotions for it. The promos of the film had created lot of curiosity among the film goers. But along with other new releases, the movie registered a very poor occupancy in the morning show on the first day. While the response for others remained the same, the Paresh Rawal starrer showed little improvement in later shows.
The business of Table No 21 was expected to go up over the weekend. Table No 21 witnessed improvement in its collection in South India, but it faced severe setback due to the cold weather in the North. The movie has collected a total of Rs 5.84 crores at the domestic Box Office in the first weekend. Its breakup is Rs 1.55 cr on Fri, Rs 2.04 cr on Sat and Rs 2.25 cr on Sun.
However, Dehraadun Diary, Dekha Jo Pehli Baar, Meri Shadi Karao and Rajdhani Express opened to poor response and they did not show any improvement in their business over the weekend. With their negligible amount of collection they have proved to be flop shows at the Box Office in the opening weekend.
