Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif starrer "Bang Bang" has crossed the ₹50 crore mark in India with its two days box office collection. However, it has failed to beat "Kick" and "Singham Returns".

Siddharth Anand's directorial film was released in more than 4,300 screens in India on 2 October. The film opened well at the box office earning ₹27.54 crore, but on the second day the collection witnessed a slight drop.
Despite being Dusshera holiday across the country, the business of the film dropped by 10 to 15 percent in India. On second day, the film accumulated ₹24.08 crore, Fox Star said.

Nevertheless, the film is expected to pick up pace during the weekend and cross ₹100 crore mark in four days.
"Bang Bang" is on a record breaking spree in overseas market as well. The film emerged as fifth highest opener so far, but at Pakistan box office it has become the highest opener with ₹76.85 lakh.
"Smashing records all ovr : #BangBangMovie gets the highest opening evr fr any film ever in Pakistan. Collects ₹76.85 lakhs. #BangBangRecords," Fox Star tweeted.
From the UK box office, the Roshan starrer minted ₹1.75 crore, North America ₹1.63 crore and Australia ₹50 lakh, according to Bollywood Hungama.
Meanwhile, the Greek god of Bollywood is proud that his latest film has shattered the records of his last film "Krrish 3" on day one itself. "Bang Bang" broke the opening day record of "Krrish 3" on Thursday.
"That is so cool. Opening higher than a franchise film like Krrish 3 and beating my own record is one way to realise my own growth and strength. But after that, it's not about me, I'm just glad I've been able to entertain my audience," the actor said in a statement.
Roshan also praised the team of "Bang Bang" especially director Anand for the hard work.
"And the entire credit for this humongous success goes to the whole starcast, the entire crew and especially to the director Sid Anand. I stand here in gratitude," he added.
