Sanjay Gupta's gangster film "Shootout at Wadala" is still going strong at the domestic box office in its second week. The action thriller film is performing better than Saif Ali Khan's zom-com "Go Goa Gone" which was released just last week.
"Shootout at Wadala" has earned ₹55.11 crore in 12 days of its release in India. The film in its first week minted ₹45.82 crore, and till second Tuesday it collected Rs ₹9.29 crore.
The second week breakup of the film is: Friday ₹2.02 crore, Saturday ₹2.33 crore, Sunday ₹2.57 crore, Monday ₹1.20 crore and Tuesday ₹1.17 crore.
Saif starrer "Go Goa Gone" was expected to pull down "Shootout at Wadala" at box offices in India. But instead "Shootout at Wadala" is giving a tough competition to the India's first zombie-comedy film.
But on a sad note, the collection of Sanjay Gupta's film might go down by the end of the second week in Punjab circuits as several theatres in the state had cancelled the screening of the film.
According to reports, National Commission for Scheduled Castes vice-chairman Dr Raj Kumar has directed the Gurgaon police commissioner to file an FIR against the director of the film over the use of objectionable language against Valmikis.
However, the film's makers are already making profit from the theatrical run of the film. If the production cost of the film is around ₹47 crore; than the film has made a profit of ₹8 crore from theatrical run itself.
Following the success of the film, its entire team including star cast John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Kangna Ranaut, Tusshar Kapoor, Sonu Sood, debutant Siddhat Kapoor and Sophie Choudry had a grand party in Mumbai on Tuesday night.
