This is one of those rare times when two Hollywood films are running in parallel in India and both are bringing in numbers. Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw had a good weekend of 42.90 crores and all eyes were on how it holds up well on Monday. Though it would have been great had the fall been restricted to 30-40%, it was more as 6 crores* came in after Friday collections of 13.15 crores.
The numbers are there and the Hollywood action entertainer is also practically the highest grossing film amongst all others in the running. Still, this was one was potentially a 100 Crore Club entrant in the offering and looks like it won’t be able to reach there. So far it has collected 48.90 crores* and now it needs to be really stable for the rest of the week.
Bollywood actor Varun, who is a huge fan of Johnson, after watching the movie, took to Twitter on Saturday and shared his experience.
“Loved the homage paid to the Samoan culture. The London chase sequence has to be the best,” he wrote.
Dwayne Johnson ‘The Rock’ then replied that he’s glad that Varun Dhawan liked Fast & Furious: Hobbs And Shaw and said that the Bollywood actor is the best.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
