Nadiadwala Grandson’s ‘Baaghi’ has turned out to be a huge success at the box office. The film enjoyed one of the best graphs for a ‘masala’ entertainer ever since one can remember. It opened well, went on to find good escalation over the weekend, and then held on quite well right through the week to emerge as a winner in 7 days flat. It is quite apparent that the film has been picked up the audience in a big way and that reflects in the very good number of INR 597.2 million that it has managed in its Week One. It is now all set to be a Superhit.
Such has been the kind of confidence showed by exhibitors that a good number of shows have been retained in the second week as well, especially at the single screens where it is finding good showcasing despite the arrival of three new Hindi films, one major Hollywood film and a Punjabi biggie too. The film has enjoyed the kind of collections that would make everyone associated with it quite proud. For producer Sajid Nadiadwala, this is continuation of a great run that he has enjoyed for years now. His campaign for 2016 has started on a great note and ‘Housefull 3’, ‘Dishoom’ and ‘Rangoon’ should only make it better.
As for ‘The Jungle Book’, it is busy setting records week after week. Collections in the fourth week are now the best ever for a film across any language that has released in India. With this, the film now stands at INR 1.71 billion which is simply terrific. The film is set to challenge the lifetime total of ‘Bang Bang’ [INR 1.81 billion] which conveys a lot about the pull this Disney film has enjoyed. All Time Blockbuster.
