Sushant Singh Rajput and Parineeti Chopra starrer "Shuddh Desi Romance", which is based on live-in relationships, has been performing pretty well at the box office, despite new release "Grand Masti".
The romantic comedy has made a business of around ₹53.78 crore worldwide till its second weekend. The film earned ₹42.89 crore in the Indian market, and ₹10.89 crore overseas.
The second week break-up of the film, according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, is: Friday ₹1.23 crore, Saturday ₹2.01 crore, Sunday ₹2.30 crore and Monday ₹77 lakh.
The film, which was initially released in 1,000 screens, did pretty well during the second weekend, but the collections declined on the second Monday. "SDR" would see a drastic downfall in its collection in its third week due to the release of "Phata Poster Nikla Hero".
This week's releases "John Day" and "Horror Story" opened on a dull note, giving way for "SDR" to perform well at the box office. But next week, the collections as well as the screen count will come down drastically.
In the overseas circuits, the film raked in ₹10.89 crore from its 10-day run. "#ShuddhDesiRomance Overseas total *after Weekend 2* stands at $ 1.721 million [₹ 10.89 crores]. Very good," Adarsh tweeted.
"SDR" raked in total ₹1.03 crore (£ 1,02,413) from the UK, ₹3.55 crores ($ 5,61,079) from the US, ₹4.03 crore (AED 23,55,000) from UAE-GCC, ₹21.08 lakh (A$ 86,950) from Australia and ₹13.24 lakh (NZ$ 25,730) from New Zealand box office.
