Bollywood movie Pink has made decent collection at the Indian box office in its second week and taken its 14-day domestic nett total closer to Rs 60 crore mark.

Despite clashing with Raaz Reboot, Pink received superb response and collected Rs 35.91 crore nett at the Indian box office in the first week. Trade experts predicted that its collection would slow down in the domestic market, as it would clash with Banjo, Parched and few other new Bollywood releases in its second week.

But the Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu-starrer remained strong at the ticket counters across the country on its second Friday, despite clashing with the new releases. Pink showed a remarkable growth of 74.29-percent growth on Saturday and another 30-percent growth on Sunday. The movie managed to surpass the mark of Rs 50 crore nett at the Indian box office in its second weekend.

The Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury-directed courtroom drama had steep decline in its collection on its second Monday and it went on dropping on the following weekdays. Pink collected Rs 15.21 crore in its second weekend and Rs 6.66 crore on the weekdays in the domestic market.

Pink has collected Rs 21.87 crore nett at the Indian box office in its second week and its 14-day domestic total collection has reached Rs 57.78 crore nett. The film is set to enter the list of top highest grossing Hindi films of 2016, beating the records of Mohenjo Daro and Udta Punjab, which have collected Rs 57.82 crore and Rs 59.60 crore, respectively, at the Indian box office in their life time.

Taran Adarsh tweeted: "#Pink had an SUPER-STRONG Week 2, taking the 2-week total to ₹ 57.78 cr... Retains 698 screens in Week 3... SUPER HIT... #Pink [Week 2] Fri 3.15 cr, Sat 5.49 cr, Sun 6.57 cr, Mon 1.98 cr, Tue 1.62 cr, Wed 1.53 cr, Thu 1.53. Total: ₹ 57.78 cr. India biz."

However, the business of Pink is likely to hit the rock bottom in its third week, as it will clash with highly-promoted and most awaited movie MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, which has forced it out from several theatres and released in around 450 screens across domestic market on 30 September.
