Check out the top 10 highest opening weekend grossers of all time!

Opening weekends are very important, especially for big budget films like Salman Khan’s Sultan, Prabhas’ Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, Aamir Khan’s Thugs of Hindostan, Ranbir Kapoor’s Sanju, and so on. This is because the makers have already invested a lot of money in the making of the film and if they have a fantastic first weekend, then the burden of recovering the cost is slightly lesser. Most of the Bollywood biggies recover more than half their cost in the opening weekend itself. This allows their producers to breathe a bit easier. Post the weekend, the course that the film takes usually depends on the content of the film. However, with a fantastic opening weekend, there is always a better chance to have an even better lifetime run. So, which is the highest all-time opening weekend grosser till date?

Well you’ll be surprised to know, it is Salman Khan’s 2016 release Sultan. The film collected a humongous Rs 180.36 crore in its five-day extended weekend. Salman’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo follows next, with Prabhas’ Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, Aamir’s Thugs of Hindostan and Ranbir’s Sanju completing the top 5. Check out the whole list of the all-time highest opening weekend grossers in the chart right here.

We were surprised to see that none of the 2018 films challenged the top 3. But will any movie releasing in 2019 change the game? Well, it is something we will have to wait and watch! In the meantime, stay tuned to Cine Blitz as we get you all the updates from the world of Bollywood and its ticket window right here.

The second half of 2019 is buzzing with films for Bollwyood. With a number of big and small film’s releasing the entertainment quotient will surely be high, but this abundance of movies will also make it challenging for many films. Especially, between June to August, Shraddha Kapoor will be the busiest star, let us tell you why.

In the third quarter of 2019, there are many interesting films coming up, amongst them Shraddha Kapoor turns out to be the only female star to have two back to back film’s releasing. Yes, now that Saaho’s release has been announced for Independence Day (August 15), August will be a busy month for Shraddha. Well, right after Saaho, Shraddha’s film with Sushant Singh Rajput, Chhichhore will release on August 30. In this film, Shraddha will be seen in some different eras of life.

Other than these two films Shraddha also has Street Dancer 3D, Rooh Afza and Baaghi 3 on her plate. With this busy schedule, the actress had to back out from the Saina Nehwal biopic, however, the near future for the actress looks busy but good and we wish her luck. Stay tuned to CineBlitz!

Tiger Shroff, Ananya Panday, Tara Sutaria’s Student of the Year 2 was one of the most-exciting releases of the year. However, it failed to take off at the box office. The movie had a decent first week and everyone expected it to show some upward trend in its second weekend at the box office. However, SOTY 2 had a lackluster second weekend. In fact, with minimal growth, the film could just manage to rake in Rs 6.62 crore in three days.

Student of the Year 2 earned Rs 1.62 crore on day 8 (Friday), Rs 2.25 crore on day 9 (Saturday) and Rs 2.75 crore on day 10 (Sunday). With that, SOTY 2 took its collection to Rs 64.52 crore at the domestic box office. With De De Pyaar De, John Wick 3 continuing their run at the box office, we expected Student of the Year 2‘s second week to be low. Meanwhile, what did you think of the movie? Share with us your review of SOTY 2 in the comments section below!

Also, check out our Student of the Year 2 review right here:

Directed by Punit D Malhotra and produced by Dharma Productions, Student of the Year 2 is a sequel to the hit movie, Student of the Year (2012). While the story and performances were decent, the execution lacked the punch. And hence, SOTY 2 got mixed reviews! In the meantime, stay tuned to CineBlitz for more news and updates about Student of the Year 2 right here.
