Bang Bang and Haider
Hrithik Roshan's 'Bang Bang' and Shahid Kapoor's 'Haider' to Clash at the Box OfficeFacebook

New releases "Sonali Cable" and "Mumbai 125KM" fared poorly on their opening day, while "Bang Bang" and "Haider" overshadowed them at the domestic box offices.

"Sonali Cable" and "Mumbai 125KM" earned approximately ₹10 lakh and ₹30 lakh on day one, according to Box Office India.

Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif starrer "Bang Bang" is continuing its winning run at the collection centres worldwide. The film has entered its third week but remained steady even on its third Friday. The 17-day domestic net collection of the film has now touched the ₹172.47 crore mark.

The worldwide gross total of the film has now crossed the ₹323 crore mark in 17 days. With ₹323 crore, the gross income of "Bang Bang" has shattered the records of Salman Khan's "Ek Tha Tiger" (₹320 crore), according to Koimoi.

"Bang Bang" has now climbed to sixth position in the worldwide grossers' list. "Bang Bang" is Hrithik's second film in the list, after "Krrish 3" which released last year.

The Hrithik film will dominate the box offices in its third week as well, as it is the only big release running in theatres.

Meanwhile, Shahid Kapoor's "Haider" is also running in its third week with decent earnings. Like "Bang Bang", "Haider" also remained steady at the collection centres.

The Vishal Bhardwaj directorial had faced trouble in India in its second week but its collection did not witness a major fall. "Haider" has managed to fetch ₹56.42 crore net income from the domestic market.

Meanwhile, Shahid said he has been overwhelmed with the response his film got from the audience.

"We are very overwhelmed with the box office collections response. The fact that we released it the day we did and chose to come with another film (Hrithik Roshan's Bang Bang) which was so big, reiterates the fact that everybody really had a lot of faith in this film, right from the time we conceived it, shot it and viewed our own product," Shahid told Financial Express.

"I see it as a victory for a certain kind of cinema. It is much larger than the fact that it's a successful film for me or that we have recovered the money."
