Bhaag Milkha Bhaag running ahead at the box office

BMB should collect around Rs 30 crore by weekend, say trade gurus

This Friday three films clashed at the box office – Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Shorts and Sixteen. Distributors say that the Farhan Akhtar-starrer biopic is doing good business at the box office despite getting mixed response from the critics.They predict its weekend collection could reach Rs 30 crore mark.

Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines told Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is going great in multiplexes, but not that great on single screens. On Friday and Saturday, the film has collected approximately Rs 18 crore. Most probably the film should collect around Rs 30 crore by the weekend.

While Some critics praised BMB, there were also a few who found it too long. Sanjay Ghai from Mukta Arts said, “BMB is doing extraordinary business in Delhi. It has collected around Rs 5 crore in two days, which is outstanding.” He added, “Advance booking is on full swing and there are hardly any tickets available for Sunday.”

According to Thadani, Shorts and Sixteen are disasters, so they are not at all a threat to the Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra film.
