After starting slow on Friday, Hrithik Roshan-starrer Super 30 showed impressive growth over the next two days and is looking at an opening weekend of around ₹50 crore. Trade website Box Office India said the growth came from small towns and mass circuits which were extremely dull on Friday and later went up by 40%. Previously underperforming multiplex territories, on the other hand, rose by 70% for the film on the life of Bihar-based mathematician Anand Kumar.
“Super 30 has a turnaround on day two. Witnesses super growth at multiplexes of tier-two cities and also shows an upward trend in mass circuits," trade analyst Taran Adarsh had tweeted about the film that earned ₹11.75 crore on day one and went up to ₹18 crore and ₹20.50 crore later. Super 30 has almost touched the lifetime business of Roshan’s previous film Mohenjo Daro ( ₹53.66 crore) and has far surpassed the opening weekend of Kaabil ( ₹30.65 crore).
The film is performing best in the south, especially in territories like Nizam, Andhra Pradesh and Mysore where it has crossed ₹3 crore. Directed by Vikas Bahl, accusations of sexual misconduct against whom had surfaced last year, it has also made $1.697 million ( ₹11.64 crore) overseas.
Meanwhile, the season’s biggest blockbuster, romantic drama Kabir Singh had an excellent fourth weekend of ₹9.50 crore taking its current box office total to ₹256 crore. The footfalls of the Sandeep Reddy Vanga directed film will fall in the range of hits like Chennai Express, Ek Tha Tiger and Dabangg and it should settle for a final score of ₹270-275 crore, Box Office India said.
Anubhav Sinha’s Article 15 has continued its impressive run too with third weekend collections standing at ₹6 crore and its current total at ₹58 crore. The film should cross the ₹60 crore mark by the end of the week, head towards ₹65 crore and ultimately do business in the range of niche, multiplex films like Pink, Secret Superstar and Dear Zindagi, according to Box Office India.
Despite competition from local films, Hollywood superhero flick Spider-Man: Far from Home is a bonafide hit with collections of ₹73 crore in 11 days. The film should comfortably cross the ₹80 crore mark and may even touch ₹85 crore, emerging as the second highest Hollywood grosser after Avengers: Endgame in India ( ₹373.22 crore) this year.
