David Dhawan's comedy film "Chashme Baddor" has ended its first week on a high note. The film starring Ali Zafar, Siddharth, Taapsee Pannu and Divyendu Sharma has raked in ₹30 crore from the domestic box office until now.
The film, made on a budget of ₹20 crore, has collected approximately ₹5 crore from the overseas box office taking the overall total to ₹35 crore.
"#ChashmeBaddoor collected approx. ₹30 cr nett in Week 1 [domestic BO]. The Overseas total stands at approx. ₹5 cr. HIT," trade analyst and film critic Taran Adrash tweeted.
The film fared well over the weekend and the collection was fantastic especially on Sunday. It maintained a rock steady position during the weekdays and emerged as one of the biggest hits of the year.
The collections will be affect in the second week due to the release of two films - "Nautaki Saala" and "Commando". Both films have garnered positive reviews from critics and have opened to a good start at the box office.
While Ayushmann Khurrana's romantic comedy film "Nautanki Saala" opened well at multiplexes in key circuits, Vidyut Jamwal's action thriller film "Commando" had a good start in single screens of mass-dominated circuits.
"Chashme Baddor" will face stiff competition from both releases. The film enjoyed the opening week with good collections, but the second week will be tough.
The film has earned double the production cost in its first week. Also, the satellite rights of the film have fetched around ₹9 crore and ancillary rights around ₹2.5 crore, The Times of India reported.
