Salman Khan-Kareena Kapoor Khan's "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" and Ajay-Tabu's "Drishyam" continue to draw audiences, which new release "Bangistan" failed to do.
"Bajrangi Bhaijaan" is running in the fourth week, but the film is still raking in around one crore on an average during weekdays. The 27-day box office collection of "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" is approximately Rs 313 crore.
Kabir Khan's directorial film had a powerful two week run, but the non-stop run was disrupted due to the release of "Drishyam". Ajay-Tabu starrer affected the screen count of "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" which brought down the box office collection of the latter.
"Drishyam" is continuing its decent run in its second week. The thriller drama, which is a remake of Malayalam film, minted Rs 1.5 crore on its 13-day at the domestic box office.
The 13-day total of "Drishyam" now stands at Rs 62.87 crore.
Meanwhile, "Drishyam" is now tax-free in Uttar Pradesh. "Drishyam" is the second movie within a month, which got tax-free status in UP. Earlier, UP government made Salman's "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" tax-free in the state.
"Thanks to UP Govt and @yadavakhilesh for making @DrishyamTheFilm tax free. One more reason for you all to watch the film," Ajay tweeted.
While the previous releases have managed to keep the cash registers ringing, Riteish Deshmukh and Pulkit Samrat starrer "Bangistan" has turned out to be a flop.
