"Bang Bang" box office collection might have dropped during the weekdays, but it has managed to rake in decent first week total.
In seven days, the Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif starrer minted nett ₹128.03 crore from domestic box office, while the gross domestic income stands at ₹184.36 crore.
The film has recorded the second highest first week total of 2014, after Salman Khan's "Kick". And it is now aiming to beat the nett lifetime earnings of Ajay Devgn's "Singham Returns".
The production house tweeted the seven day domestic box office income "Bang Bang".
"Quick correction: #BangBangMovie total in India stands at ₹128.03 cr nett, not ₹127.44 cr as reported earlier. V arnt complaining, v say :) RT," Fox Star, the production house, tweeted.
Here is the day-wise breakup of the film: Thursday (opening day) raked in ₹27.54 crore, Friday ₹24.08 crore, Saturday ₹20.1 crore, Sunday ₹22.41 crore, Monday ₹15.36 crore, Tuesday ₹10.31 crore and Wednesday ₹8.23 crore.
The collection dropped on Tuesday, which was expected, considering the normal working weekday. But on Wednesday too the film's earning dropped considerably.
Meanwhile, "Bang Bang" os creating records in overseas market, especially at Pakistan's box office. It has replaced much hyped Pakistani film "Operation 021" at several theaters in the neighbouring country.
"Operation 021" starring Pakistani superstar Shaan was released on Bakri Eid (Eid al-Adha 2014) and was expected to break records created by last year's Eid release "Waar".
But theatre owners had to pull down the shows after Eid as the crowd started objecting the screening of the film. Theatre owners later decided to put extra shows of Hrithik-Katrina's "Bang Bang".
"It was a bad situation on Eid day as we had kept extra shows of Operation 021 but after the crowd rejected the movie we had no option but to pull it off screen," Adeel Siddiqui, the owner of Bambino cinema, told Press Trust of India.
"We always do bonus business on Eid holidays when all shows are housefull. Unfortunately, this time things didn't go as planned. Maybe the film was just too slow paced for the average cinemagoers," he added.
