Deepika Padukone, Amitabh Bachchan and Irrfan Khan starrer "Piku" continues to do well in its second week, while Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Karan Johar starrer "Bombay Velvet" had a decent Monday.

"Piku", which has been declared a smash hit, earned ₹2.60 crore on second Monday, while "Bombay Velvet" earned ₹2.10 crore on first Monday.

"#Piku [Week 2] Fri 3.10 cr, Sat 5.10 cr, Sun 6.40 cr, Mon 2.60 cr [85% of Fri; super] Grand total: ₹ 58.62 cr. India biz. SMASH HIT," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.

"#BombayVelvet Fri 5.20 cr, Sat 5.10 cr, Sun 5.80 cr, Mon 2.10 cr. Total: ₹ 18.20 cr. India biz," he added.

The second Monday box office collection of "Piku" is 85% of second Friday's earnings. Also, "Piku" has again fared better than "Bombay Velvet" at the domestic box office.

Generally, new releases affect the old film running at the box office, but in the case of "Piku", Ranbir-Anushka's new release "Bombay Velvet" hasn't made any impact on the former's business.

Moreover, Shoojit Sircar's directorial film has set the record of highest second weekend total of 2015.

"'Bombay Velvet' has hardly any effect on this father-daughter drama despite running on lesser screens. So far, it has raked in ₹ 56.02 crore and set a record for the highest second week collection of 2015," a trade source told Mid-Day.

Another trade analyst added that "Piku" is the only silver lining at the box office as "Bombay Velvet" failed to perform as expected.

"The opening of 'Bombay Velvet' sent shock waves to the film industry. It turned out to be lowest opening of this decade. It was obvious that neither the promos nor the music was exciting enough to lure the audience to the theatres," trade analyst Amod Mehra told the daily.
