In its 3rd week, Bodyguard netted Rs. 9 crore to take its 3-week total to Rs. 145 crore. Its business has crossed that of Salman Khan starrer Dabangg, making it the second highest all-time grosser in India (next only to 3 Idiots)!
Bol, which released with Bodyguard, managed to survive at some centres in 3rd week at low collections.
Of the releases on September 16, Rivaaz has bombed. The film has had to be discontinued after a week’s run at most of the cinemas. Rajshri’s experiment of releasing Jaana Pehchana in just one cinema in India last week failed – like the film itself. The Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se sequel managed to collect less than 20% of the houseful capacity in its first week. Burf Ka Toofan (dubbed) could not do much at the ticket windows in its first week.
