After taking a dull start on Friday (10 February 2012), Karan Johar’s Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu went on to make Rs. 5.25 crore (all-India net) on the opening day at the box-office windows.
The Imran Khan-Kareena Kapoor starrer had taken off to a very slow start on Friday. Trade persons were of the opinion that the film might collect only around Rs. 4 crore on day one, but more than expected collections in the evening shows of the film in city multiplexes, took the final tally higher than expected. However, collections in single screen cinemas were poor, an indication that audience which frequents single screen cinemas has rejected the film.
The trade estimates that the film will make around Rs. 15-18 crore (net) over its first weekend. Collections are expected to be higher on Saturday and Sunday, as Valentine’s Day (Tuesday, 14 February) approaches.
