Hollywood dominated Bollywood as Disney’s latest animated sequel, Frozen 2, continued to perform on the third day while the multi-starrer, Pagalpanti, showed limited growth.
John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Pulkit Samrat, Ileana D’Cruz, Urvashi Rautela, Kriti Kharbanda and Saurabh Shukla starrer Pagalpanti received lukewarm response from its trailer which led to its poor occupancy in the morning shows across India on the first day.
The comedy-drama received thumbs down from both critics and the paying audience as per BookMyShow.com but still showed some growth in the evening and night shows, collecting Rs 7.10 crore on its first day at the ticket window. On Saturday, the earnings showed slight growth to Rs 8 crore.
On the third day, Pagalpanti grew slightly with a collections of somewhere between Rs 9-9.5 crore (as per early estimates) bringing the 3 days to Rs 24.30 crore and now it will be very difficult for the comedy drama to even cross its huge budget of Rs 85 Crore (Production Cost: 73 Crore, Prints & Advertising Cost: 12 Crore). Pagalpanti is directed by Anees Bazmee and is produced by Panaroma Studios.
Disney’s Frozen 2 became one of the best opening for an animated film in India with Rs 3.50 crore and has already beaten the lifetime number of Frozen which was around 2.90 crore released in 2013. The earnings doubled in Saturday with Rs 6.75 crore.
As per early estimates, the earnings of Frozen 2 grew further on the third day with an estimate of Rs 10-11 crore, bringing the 3 days total to somewhere between Rs 20-21 crore. Weekdays should be good as well considering the glowing reviews it has received from the paying audience as per BookMyShow.com
