Box Office was on fire this week as Ranveer Singh starrer 83 collected a massive amount while the previous champs Spider Man No Way Home and Pushpa continued to spark at the box office.
Much was expected from Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Pankaj Tripathi starrer 83 due to humongous star cast, mega budget and solid trailer. However, the cricket biopic drama failed at the box office in its first week. Directed by Kabir Khan, 83 and produced by Reliance Entertainment, Phantom Films and Kabir Khan Films Production, 83 opened on a low note and managed to stay on below-than-expected collections in first week with Rs 71.87 crore
The good news was that 83 did not face any competition last weel week due to Shahid Kapoor starrer Jersey getting postponed. The cricket biopic drama minted Rs 4.36 crore but got a solid boost on second Saturday and second Sunday with Rs 7.73 crore and Rs 9.87 crore, bringing the 10 days total to around Rs 94 crore. However with huge budget close to Rs 200 crore and restrictions due to rising COVID-19 cases and limited occupancy, 83 has dim chances to cross its budget.
Spider Man No Way Home, has done a fabulous business with Rs 148.07 crores in the 8-day extended first week. The super hero drama held well on its second week with Rs 41.60 crore. The latest Spider Man flick held well on third Friday due to less competition with Rs 4.05 crore and minted Rs 6.25 crore on third Saturday while third Sunday was somewhere between Rs 8-8.10 crore, bringing the 18 days total to an outstanding Rs 208-208.50 crore.
Spider Man No Way Home has already become the third highest grossing Hollywood film in India beating Jungle Book which collected Rs 188 crore and should do well in third week as well.
The Allu Arjun and Fahad Faasil starrer Pushpa had shattered all the box office records as it collected an outstanding Rs 26.95 crore in its first week followed by Rs 20.24 crore in the second week in the Hindi version. The action drama did well on its third Friday with an amazing Rs 3.50 crore. Due to its mass appeal, Pushpa doubled its collection on third Saturday with Rs 6.10 crore . As per early trade report, the action drama collected Rs 7.75 crore on third Sunday, bringing the 17 days total to a solid Rs 64.40-64..60 crore. With this total, Pushpa has comfortably beaten Yash starrer KGF 2 to become the 4th highest grossing Hindi dubbed film.
Pushpa had also crossed its budget which was Rs 180 crore as it collected Rs 186.72 crore in all languages from around 3000 screens across India.
