The Jungle book had another terrific day at the Box Office as it ended up collecting more than all other films in the running. With 3.58 crore more coming in on its third Friday, the film has now collected 126.32 crore at the Box Office. The film is now moving towards the status of All Time Blockbuster as sky is the limit for the Disney now. In fact it would cross Airlift lifetime collections of 129 crore by evening itself.
Meanwhile, The Jungle Book has done quite well to be the preferred choice of filmgoers across the country as it has earned more than all other films combined together. As per early estimates, Fan has collected around 2.5 crore* at the Box Office. On the other hand Nil Battey Sannata, Santa Banta Pvt. Ltd. and Laal Rang have collected less than 1 crore* between themselves.
Collections of Fan now stand at the 74 crore* and has lost an opportunity to go past the 100 crore mark. It has gone down really fast and despite an open week ahead, there won’t be any gains since the film’s content has been rejected.
As for the new releases, Nil Battey Sannata has seen most acclaim coming its way, which means it stands a chance to see some growth over the weekend. Laal Rang has seen mixed reviews, though Randeep Hooda has been unanimously appreciated. Santa Banta Pvt. Ltd. hasn’t even been reviewed by most and would disappear pretty soon.
* Final numbers soon
Note: All collections as per production and distributor sources
