Kapoor And Sons has set new records for 2016. After a controlled release which saw traction primarily at major multiplexes of big cities, the Shakun Batra directed flick did well with its target audience.
The film earned around 6.65 crore more on Thursday and with this, the collections now stand around the 47 crore mark. These are very good numbers for a film which had seen 6.85 crore coming on its Day One. Ever since then, the collections have only escalated during the weekend, and then held on very well right through the weekdays.
This is how the highest grossers of 2016 look like:
In fact, when compared to some of the other key multiplexes successes of the last few months, Kapoor & Sons is doing better than Neerja [35.32 crore] and even Piku [41.42 crore]. Though the lifetime total of Piku [80 crore] is out of reach since another multiplex release of the same genre, Ki & Ka, releases next week, it is a wait and watch situation to see how much closer does it come to Neerja (expected) lifetime [76 crore].
Meanwhile, Himesh Reshammiya’s Teraa Surroor has now accumulated around 14.15 crore in two weeks. The film would close its lifetime at 15 crore and prove to be a plus affair for all involved due to low costs (11 crore) and pre-sales of rights.
Note: All collections as per production and distributor sources
