"Kai Po Che!" continued to rake in more collections at the box office in its second week, compared to new releases "I Me Aur Main" and "The Attacks of 26/11".
Abhishek Kapoor's directorial film has maintained a strong position at metros, especially in Mumbai. It collected approximately ₹16.42 crore in the second week, taking the overall collection to ₹45.52 crore.
The business of the film, starring newcomers Sushant Singh, Amit Sadh and Raj Kumar Yadav, was excellent in Mumbai, Delhi and Mysore circuit.
Mumbai contributed around ₹18-19 crore, Delhi made a contribution of ₹8-10 crore while Mysore contributed ₹2-4 crore to the total collections.
"#KaiPoChe maintained very well at urban centres. #KaiPoChe [revised] collected approx ₹16.42 cr nett in Week 2. Grand total: approx ₹45.52 cr nett," trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted.
The film gave stiff competition to John Abraham starrer "I Me and Main" and Ram Gopal Varma's crime-thriller "The Attacks of 26/11". Both the films completed their first week on a very dull note.
"I Me Aur Main", which also stars Prachi Desai and Chitrangda Singh, minted approximately ₹7.90 crore in its first week. Kapil Sharma's directorial flick failed to attract audiences during the opening weekend and weekdays.
#IMeAurMain had a lacklustre weekend and maintained low figures on weekdays. Collected approx ₹7.90 cr nett in Week 1," Adarsh tweeted.
Ram Gopal Varma's directorial venture "The Attack of 26/11", which is based on the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, also fell below expectations in terms of its earnings. The film did quite well in Maharashtra and southern states.
""The Attacks Of 26/11" performed slightly better in pockets of Maharashtra and South India, but remained below the mark elsewhere," Adrash wrote on his Twitter page.
