Akshay Kumar – Parineeti Chopra’s Kesari might have started off slow due to Holi yesterday (March 21), but it set the box office on fire. Yes, in just half a day, the histrionic managed to rake in Rs 21.50 crore. This has not only made it the highest Holi-day grosser, but also the highest opener of 2019. Yes, Kesari beat Gully Boy to achieve this huge feat. Considering that other releases enjoyed holidays or full day screenings, Kesari has crushed the opposition and how!
If you look at all the 2019 releases till now, you will realise what we are talking about. Earlier, Ranveer Singh – Alia Bhatt’s Gully Boy that enjoyed a Valentine’s Day release was the highest opener with a day 1 box office collection of Rs 19.40 crore. Ajay Devgn, Madhuri Dixit, Anil Kapoor’s comic caper Total Dhamaal was in second position with a collection of Rs 16.50 crore! However, Akshay Kumar – Parineeti Chopra’s Kesari with an opening day collection of Rs 21.50 crore has taken the top spot. What do you have to say about this latest development? Share with us your thoughts in the comments section below!
Check out the Kesari trailer right here:
Kesari’s great run at the box office is because of a number of reasons. The movie had a huge buzz before it released. It also got a massive screen space of 3000 plus screens. With some fantastic reviews by the critics as well as the public, most of the evening and night shows were housefull. With such fantastic word of mouth, we are sure about Abhishek Varman directorial performing well. It will grow over the first weekend and manage to garner an impressive overall collection. But we will have to wait to find out, if Kesari can breach the Rs 100 crore mark during the opening weekend. In the meantime, stay tuned to CineBlitz for more news, updates and gossip.
De De Pyaar De: Ajay Devgn’s film enters the 100 crore club in its fourth week
Starring Ajay Devgn, Rakul Preet and Tabu, De De Pyaar De is directed by Akiv Ali and produced by Luv Ranjan
Ajay Devgn, Tabu and Rakul Preet starrer De De Pyaar De released on May 16. The film was praised by the audience and also impressed the critics for its progressive storyline. The film is still in theatres and even after four weeks its running strong. In fact, it has crossed the 100 crore mark. Even with a big release, festival and the cricket world cup, the film is getting many footfalls. De De Pyaar De in the fourth week of its release earned Rs 4.13 crore. With its total box office collection the film has went on to be a hit.
Turns out that word of mouth has worked in the favour of the Ajay Devgn starrer and the film now stands with a total BO collection of Rs 101.14 crores. Eeven Salman Khan’s Bharat doesn’t seem to have affected De De Pyaar De’s business too much. With the film still in cinemas there is a possibility of more growth.
De De Pyaar De is a rom-com that shows a 50-year-old man falling in love with a 26-year-old girl and what happens when his family and ex-wife come into the pictures leaving many dynamics changing. Stay tuned to CineBlitz for more updates!
Bharat box office collection day 7: Salman Khan’s film remains rock-solid; rakes in Rs 167.60 crore
Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif’s Bharat continues its fantastic run at the box office
Salman Khan – Katrina Kaif’s Bharat has set the cash registers ringing ever since it released on Eid (June 05). The movie has smashed several records over the first weekend. And after a major dip on day 6 (first Monday), the movie has remained rock steady. In fact, on day 7, which was a working Tuesday, the film earned another Rs 8.30 crore, which is quite incredible. With that, Bharat has raked in a total of Rs 167.60 crore at the box office. According to current trends, it should hit the Rs 175 crore mark today (day 8, June 12).
While a lot was expected from Bharat, the Ali Abbas Zafar directorial has done well. In fact, considering that the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is going on and India’s matches have affected the movie, Bharat has still managed to perform well at the box office. Salman – Katrina’s crackling chemistry as well as a heart-warming tale presented well by Ali Abbas Zafar helped the movie earn big bucks. Decent reviews from critics as well as the audience also helped. We are sure the movie will cross the Rs 200 crore mark in its lifetime run. But will it become 2019’s highest grosser? Well, time will tell!
Produced by Atul Agnihotri, Alvira Agnihotri, Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar under the banner of Reel Life Production Pvt Ltd. and Salman Khan Films, Bharat is presented by T-Series. Written and directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the movie also stars Disha Patani, Sunil Grover, Tabu and Jackie Shroff. With the film continuing its box office run, stay tuned to CineBlitz for more news and updates about Bharat.
Bharat box office collection day 5: Salman Khan’s film crushes Kesari; becomes the second highest opening weekend grosser of 2019
Salman Khan – Katrina Kaif’s Bharat ended its first weekend at the box office on a high
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.
