Akshay Kumar's "Baby" has maintained its rock-steady pace at the domestic box office, while "Khamoshiyan" has turned out to be a profitable venture.
"Baby" finished its two weeks theatrical run and became the first hit film of 2015. Positive reviews helped the film to maintain a strong hold at the ticket window even in its second week. Due to this the film managed to earn Rs 84 crore in two weeks.
"#Baby is rock-steady [Wk 2] Fri 2.85 cr, Sat 3.99 cr, Sun 5.81 cr, Mon 2.20 cr, Tue 1.92 cr, Wed 1.94 cr, Thu 1.87 cr. Total: ₹ 84.40 cr," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
"Baby" is one of the commercially successful films of 2015 along with "Khamoshiyan". Both the films managed to earn more than the production costs.
"Khamoshiyan" starring Ali Fazal, Sapna Pabbi and Gurmeet Choudhary is a horror thriller. The film earned its budget amount within seven days of its release.
Made on a budget of Rs 11 crore, "Khamoshiyan" earned Rs 11 crore from its domestic run in first week and Rs 7.5 crore from satellite and music rights.
"#Khamoshiyan Fri 1.92 cr, Sat 2.21 cr, Sun 2.54 cr, Mon 1.33 cr, Tue 1.27 cr, Wed 1.10 cr, Thu 93 lacs. Total: ₹ 11.30 cr. India biz," Adarsh tweeted.
Like most of the Bhatt productions, "Khamoshiyan" too turned out to be a profitable venture. However, with new film "Shamitabh" releasing this week it remains to be seen whether "Khamoshiyan" will survive in its second week or just vanish from theaters.
