Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar starrer "Dum Laga Ke Haisha" has taken the lead at the box office in its second week. The romantic film's second Friday collection is better than opening day's box office income.
Also, the film is now dominating Varun Dhawan's "Badlapur" and this week's release "Dirty Politics" starring Mallika Sherawat.
"Dum Laga Ke Haisha" earned ₹10.64 in one week and ₹1.95 crore on second Friday. The film fared well on second Friday due to Holi holiday across the country.
The total domestic box office collection of the film stands at ₹12.59 crore, which is pretty good for a film released in just 769 screens.
"#DumLagaKeHaisha [Week 2] Fri 1.95 cr. Grand total: ₹ 12.59 cr. India biz. Excellent growth. Unaffected by new films + Holi celebrations," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
"#DumLagaKeHaisha Fri 1.12 cr, Sat 2.14 cr, Sun 2.86 cr, Mon 1.08 cr, Tue 1.11 cr, Wed 1.08 cr, Thu 1.24 cr. Total: ₹ 10.64 cr. India biz," he added.
Varun Dhawan's "Badlapur" lost its top position to "Dum Laga Ke Haisha" in its second week. The box office income of "Badlapur" declined in its second week. However, the film has entered into the hit zone by earning the production cost.
Also, the makers are now making profit from the crime drama directed by Sriram Raghavan.
"#Badlapur [Week 2] Fri 1.40 cr, Sat 2.07 cr, Sun 2.55 cr, Mon 1.01 cr, Tue 90 lacs, Wed 80 lacs, Thu 80 lacs. Grand total: ₹ 45.84 cr," Adarsh tweeted.
Meanwhile, Mallika Sherawat's "Dirty Politics" failed to start on a decent note despite Holi holiday on Friday. The film, surrounded by negative reviews, opened with just 10% occupancy on first Friday.
As expected, Mallika's "Dirty Politics" single screens occupancy was better than multiplexes, but the opening day collections were below average.
Meanwhile, there is hardly any scope for the film's box office collection to show some improvement over the weekend, as the reviews are negative.
