Akshay Kumar and Sidharth Malhotra starrer "Brothers" has earned more than Rs 82 crore in its two-week run and now the film is heading to cross Rs 90 crore mark at the domestic box office.
"#Brothers [Week 2] Fri 1.40 cr, Sat 2 cr, Sun 2.70 cr, Mon 1.20 cr, Tue 90 lacs, Wed 86 lacs, Thu 81 lacs. Total: ₹ 82.47 cr. India biz," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
"Brothers" is Akshay's third film this year, after "Baby" and "Gabbar Is Back". Both the films emerged as superhit, but they failed to cross Rs 100 crore mark at the box office.
"Brothers" garnered good hype before its releases. The film was touted to be one of the biggest releases this year and thus was expected to earn more than Rs 100 crore. However, looks like that the film will finish its domestic box office run before crossing the Rs 100 crore line.
"Brothers" need more than Rs 15 crore to enter the century club, which seems unlikely for the film to earn in its theatrical run as the collection has dipped drastically.
Moreover, with the release of "Phantom" the screen count of "Brothers" has reduced, which has affected its box office earnings in the third week. Overall, "Brothers" will earn approximately Rs 90 crore in its lifetime box office run.
On the other hand, Ajay Devgn and Tabu starrer "Drishyam" completed its four-week run at the box office and entered its fifth week. However, the collection has dropped drastically in its fifth week.
"#Drishyam [Week 5] Fri to Sun 84 lacs. Total: ₹ 75.71 cr. India biz," Adarsh tweeted the fifth weekend business of the film.
Also, Salman Khan's "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" is running in several shows in India. The film will soon complete half century, i.e. 50 days at the box office. The film has minted Rs 319 crore and will end its run with Rs 320 crore domestic net income.
