The second day figures are here and seems like Akki's blockbuster is all set to make a Rs 50 crore opening weekend...Are we excited?
Akshay Kumar is back to rule the box office. Singh Is Bliing which released this Friday is already inching towards its 50 crore mark. The film experienced a grand opening by collecting a whopping sum of Rs 20.67 crore on its first day, also making it Akki's BIGGEST opening ever. Although the second day (Saturday) saw a dip in figures by minting a mere sum of Rs 14. 5 crore. But combining the film's 2 day collections, Singh Is Bliing has managed to rake a huge total of Rs 37.17 crore within 2 days. Yes!
Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh just tweeted a SIB round up on Twitter. He wrote, "#SinghIsBliing Fri 20.67 cr, Sat 14.50 cr. Total: ₹ 35.17 cr. India biz... Biz should escalate on Sunday."
Like he predicts, the numbers are obviously expected to grow bigger today as the occupancy in theaters are usually more on a Sunday, compared to other days. Also, the film isn't facing any major threat at the box office. Talvar which released on the same day (October 2) is moving at a snail's pace in terms of box office numbers, despite getting positive reviews.
Now its left to see if Sunday will turn lucky for Akki and make his film achieve the 50 crore mark, on its opening weekend! Directed by Prabhudeva, Singh Is Bliing also stars Amy Jackson and Lara Dutta in lead roles. Keep watching this space for more updates on the trade figures!
