Salman Khan – Katrina Kaif’s Bharat was one of the most-awaited films of the year. And it proved its might as it released on June 5. In fact, after a massive opening, the movie raked in huge amounts to end the first weekend at the box office on a high. Bharat amassed Rs 150.10 crore over its extended 5-day opening weekend. With that, it crushed Akshay Kumar’s Kesari and became the second-highest opening weekend grosser of 2019. A look at the first weekend collection of the 2019 releases proves it!

Currently, Avengers: Endgame is the highest opening weekend grosser of 2019. The Marvel release earned Rs 157.20 crore over its three-day weekend. In second spot is Bharat with an opening weekend tally of Rs 150.10 crore. Kesari comes in third place with a first weekend collection of Rs 80 crore. Gully Boy (Rs 72.50 crore) and Kalank (Rs 63 crore) complete the list of top 5 opening weekend grossers of 2019 in India.

The fact that Bharat‘s opening weekend tally is nearly twice of third place Kesari is a huge deal. But we need to take into consideration that the Ali Abbas Zafar-directorial enjoyed an extended five-day opening weekend. Also, the Hollywood release – Avengers: Endgame still continues to be the highest first weekend grosser of 2019, even though it had a normal three-day weekend. Clearly, Bharat could’ve done better. Obviously, it was affected by India’s Cricket World Cup 2019 match against Australia on day 5. Or else, Bharat would’ve surely powered past Avengers: Endgame and that would’ve been massive! Stay tuned to CineBlitz for more updates on this front.

Ayushmann Khurrana’s Article 15 completes successful 50 days at the Box Office!

Ayushmann Khurrana is riding high on success and how! The very talented actor whose first release of 2019 was Article 15, created a huge wave amongst the citizens of the nation owing to the mind-numbing portrayal of the caste hierarchy our country faces till date. It was a stare-in-your-face film whose realistic storyline and execution left everyone gasping at our country’s reality and Ayushmann Khurrana, who had never donned the role of a cop, was lauded for his performance!

The Anubhav Sinha directorial is a stark reminder of the deep-rooted caste hierarchy of our country that still persists and the norms related to it alongside the aftermaths of not obeying the set rules. The movie is the most realistic investigative drama which is inspired by real-life incidents. From Dalit rapes to other atrocities, Article 15 gets a hold of the social nerve of the society which presents an alarming situation that the country is dealing with.

The national award-winning actor whose last year’s releases- Badhai Ho and Andhadhun both won National awards, has come to be known for his choice of different and brilliant scripts, which stand different from what the industry’s norm of ‘pure commercial entertainment’ has been. Ayushmann Khurrana has also emerged as the sole brand to promote ‘quality over quantity’ and ‘content over commerciality’.
