Varun Dhawan and Banita Sandhu's October might not have set the box office on fire, but it is still raking in the moolah at the ticket window. And even after a decent first week, October saw a decent growth over the second weekend. On day 10 (second Sunday), the film raked in Rs 3.78 crore to take its overall box office tally to Rs 39.33 crore at the box office. The makers revealed the detailed box office collections in a press note, which read as, "October : *1st Week* Friday Rs 5.04 crore, Saturday Rs 7.47 crore, Sunday Rs 7.74 crore, Monday Rs 2.70 crore, Tuesday Rs 2.61 crore, Wednesday Rs 2.43 crore, Thursday Rs 2.25 crore. *2nd Week:* Friday Rs 1.89 crore, Saturday Rs 3.42 crore (80% growth), Sunday Rs 3.78 crore. Total: Rs 39.33 crore."
Considering that October had a niche subject and got a limited screen space, we have to say that the film has performed well. In fact, even after films like Ishaan Khatter's Beyond The Clouds and Abhay Deol - Patralekhaa's Nanu Ki Jaanu released, October has continued to dominate the box office. Looking at the curent trends, we expect the Shoojit Sircar directorial to continue its decent run at the ticket window. It should rake in Rs 45 crore in its lifetime run, but it could go on to notch Rs 50 crore too. However, we will have to wait and watch how the film progresses in the second week.
