Hollywood release, The Lion King has been doing really well at the Indian Box Office. The film has crossed the 100 crores mark and that too in 10 days.
Disney’s film started on a good note at the Indian Box Office and trended well in the first week. What came as a surprise was that it continued to hold strong even in the second weekend despite new Bollywood releases like Judgementall Hai Kya & Arjun Patiala. In fact, the second weekend collections of The Lion King are more than the accumulative first weekend total of JHK & AP.
Let’s have a look at the numbers of all three films this weekend –
The Lion King Second Weekend Business
Second Friday – 5.35 crores
Second Saturday – 12.22 crores
Second Sunday – 15.13 crores
Total – 32.70 crores
Judgementall Hai Kya First Weekend Business
First Friday – 5.40 crores
First Saturday – 8.02 crores
First Sunday – 8.62 crores
Total – 22.04 crores
First Friday – 1.25 crores
First Saturday – 1.50 crores
First Sunday – 2 crores*
Total – 4.75 crores*
Even if we add the first weekend total of JHK & AP, the total comes up as 26.79 crores* which is way less than the second weekend total of The Lion King which is sad.
While both films are unlikely to compete with TLK in any way, we just hope they hold up strongly in the weekdays and do respectable business.
JHK stars Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut in lead and Arjun Patiala features Diljit Dosanjh, Kriti Sanon & Varun Sharma as lead stars.
