Anushka Sharma's "NH10" and Bhumi Pednekar's "Dum Laga Ke Haisha" continues to rule the box office as there was no big release last week.
Anushka's film has successfully completed its two weeks run at the box office and has entered its third week. The film had decent two weeks and third weekend collection from Indian market.
In its first week, the action drama minted ₹20.60 crore. Though its collection dropped in the second week, it raked in ₹7.75 crore. Since there were no releases in the week, the film minted ₹2.25 crore from third weekend.
"#NH10 Week 1 - ₹ 20.60 cr, Week 2 - ₹ 7.75 cr, Wknd 3 - ₹ 2.25 cr. Total: ₹ 30.60 cr. India biz," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
The first quarter of the year remained low with only four movies earning more than production cost, including "NH10". Trade analysts said that the low budget movies have performed well and has become the hit films of 2015.
"'PK' was released last year and it did well in the beginning of this year, but it was a 2014 release. As far as this year's hit films are concerned, 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha', 'NH10', 'Badlapur' and 'Baby' - these films have done well. However, it's not an encouraging ratio at all," Adarsh told IANS.

Even Yash Raj Productions "Dum Laga Ke Haisha", which had a slow start, has made a mark at the box office with its phenomenal collection.
The film is running in its fifth week at the box office and still been faring well from ticket window.
In five weeks the film minted ₹29.20 crore from Indian markets.
"#DumLagaKeHaisha [Week 5] Fri 21 lacs, Sat 42 lacs, Sun 50 lacs. Grand total: ₹ 29.20 cr. India biz. HIT," Adarsh tweeted.
