As expected, it was Drishyam that enjoyed the maximum collections on Saturday as well, when it came to Bollywood outings. With Bangistan failing to entice audience and Bajrangi Bhaijaan staying steady, albeit on a lower side, it was Drishyam which raked in maximum moolah.
As a result, over 4 crore more came in, hence resulting in the Ajay Devgn starrer crossing the 53 crore mark. The film is expected to have another good day today, as families contribute to maximum footfalls on Sundays. Since Drishyam is a family affair, occupancy for the film is going to be the best when compared to the rest. Moreover, shows for the film have been increased as well over the weekend.
Meanwhile, Bajrangi Bhaijaan brought in around 2 crore more on Saturday, and has now crossed the 305 crore mark. The film is still collecting in crores and the trend is expected during the weekdays as well with an average of 1 crore expected on each of the days.
Bangistan, after being thrashed all over, didn’t entirely collapse on Saturday which is a surprise. That said, the collections are still disastrous and with less than 1.5 crore coming in, the film now stands around the 2.5 crore mark.
As for Hollywood, it had the biggest haul on Saturday as Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation found maximum footfalls. With around 9 crore* coming in on Saturday, the film has now crossed the 15 crore* mark, hence collecting double of all the other Hindi films combined together.
* Final numbers awaited
