Deepika Padukone and Amitabh Bachchan starrer "Piku" is all set to beat the records of women centric films "Mary Kom" and "Queen".
"Piku", also starring Irrfan Khan, is running successfully in theatres in its second week. The film has had the highest success rate at the box office this year. In 2015, only a few films did well at the box office and "Piku" is among them.
The second weekdays collection of "Piku" is still strong compared to other films. Despite running in lesser screens, the film has fared in ₹60 crore from domestic box office until now.
"#Piku [Week 2] Fri 3.10 cr, Sat 5.10 cr, Sun 6.40 cr, Mon 2.60 cr, Tue 2.20 cr. Grand total: ₹ 60.82 cr. India biz. SMASH HIT," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
Shoojit Sircar's directorial film "Piku" is the biggest opener overseas and third highest grosser of 2015 in India.
The film is now set to beat the records of Priyanka Chopra's "Mary Kom" and Kangana Ranaut's "Queen".
"With 65 cr+ expected for #Piku, @DeepikaPadukone is set to deliver BIGGEST success ever for a female centric film, beating Queen (62 cr)," trade analyst Joginder Tuteja tweeted.
"#Correction - #MaryKom (64 cr) and not # #Queen (62cr) is highest female centric grosser. So #Piku would have to beat that," he added.
Meanwhile, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma starrer "Bombay Velvet" has disappointed with its box office collection.
After its opening weekend box office collection, several trade analysts termed the film as "disaster", "debacle" and "flop".
"It's very bad. 'Bombay Velvet' earned just ₹16.25 crore. That should have been the day 1 collection instead of the weekend collection," trade analyst Komal Nahta told IANS.
"But you can't compare 'Bombay Velvet' to other films because of its budget of ₹108 crore. With that amount, it should have collected ₹15 crore on day 1. The film is a colossal flop," he added.
