New Delhi: Ek Villain is least perturbed by the new releases Bobby Jasoos and Lekar Hum Deewana Dil which have bombed at box office. The Sidharth-Shraddha starrer after a mind-boggling first week minting Rs 77.20 cr is continuing to reign over the second week too.
On its second Friday when new releases snatched most number of screens, the flick garnered an impressive Rs 4.30 cr.
“EkVillain [Week 2] Fri 4.30 cr. Grand total: Rs 81.50 cr nett. India biz. FANTASTIC!”, tweets trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh.
As per reports, on Saturday this musical revenge saga did a rock steady business of over Rs 4 cr again.
On the other hand, Vidya Balan's ‘Bobby Jasoos' which mostly has received good reviews particularly for the actress herself, did a tepid collection of Rs 1.78 cr nett in India on Day 1. “BobbyJasoos Fri Rs 1.78 cr nett. India biz”, confirms Adarsh. However, on the following day it picked up well and made Rs 2.53 cr nett.
"BobbyJasoos Fri 1.78 cr, Sat 2.53 cr. Total: Rs 4.31 cr nett. India biz", writes Adarsh.
Being slammed by critics and apparently snubbed by the audience, the second release Lekar Hum Deewana Dil couldn't even cross Rs 1 cr mark on the opening day and dropped down badly on Saturday.
Debutant Armaan Jain starrer's two days collection stands merely at Rs 1.05 cr.
What is amusing that both these new releases' collection is less than the over three weeks old ‘Holiday-A Soldier Is Never Off Duty' starring Akshay Kumar which on its fourth Friday managed Rs 2.15 cr nett, thereby taking its 22 days total to Rs 112.18 cr nett in India.
“Holiday Week 4 total: Rs 2.15 cr. Grand total: Rs 112.18 cr nett. HIT”, confirms Adarsh.
