‘Don 2’ shines at the box office; ‘Players’ tanks

Shahrukh Khan’s thriller crosses the Rs 100 crore mark at the end of the third week, while Players struggles in its first week

Shahrukh Khan has definitely had a great year at the box office. After a blockbuster in the form of his Diwali release RA.One, SRK’s Don 2 (which released on December 23, 2011) has also been declared a hit. Even though the collections dropped heavily in the third week, the film has managed to earn a nett collection of around Rs 101.66 crore.

While the year ended on a positive note for the film industry, 2012 didn’t begin that well. the Abhishek Bachchan, Neil Nitin Mukhesh, Bipasha Basu, Sonam Kapoor starrer Players has failed to generate any kind of interest. Abbas-Mustan definitely have a great cause for concern as their big-budget remake of the Hollywood superhit Italian Job has tanked at the BO.

Players’ collections look very poor; the film has managed to earn only about Rs 21.50 crore nett in the first week. And sadly, all circuits across the country including Mumbai have done poorly. The collections on the opening weekend itself were low (Rs 14.85 crore) and the trade analysts didn’t expect the film to recover from that. The trade is now looking forward to the release of the Hrithik Roshan-Sanjay Dutt led Agneepath, which has the potential to put the industry trade back on track.
