Box Office collection in India

Box Office collection in India

India Box Office: Fast and Furious 9 collects 3.50 crore in 2 days. Marvel’s superhero film Shang Chi opens at 3.25 crore.

The Marvel superhero film Shang Chi has taken a good start at the box office as the film raked in collections in the range of Rs 3.25 crore. Given the booking, the opening day biz could have been in the Rs 5 crore range.

However, the spot booking was relatively slower than expected. But nonetheless, it’s a good start for a Hollywood film that too a Chinese superhero origin story.

The good news here lies in the fact that the collections are good in the Hindi markets. English was the best faring version for Shang Chi by a distance followed by the South Indian dubbed and Hindi.

Bell Bottom followed Fast and Furious nine, and now Shang Chi has got the things rolling for the trade-in Hindi circuits, and it’s now up to the up-to-the industry to ensure a constant flow of releases to revive the ailing exhibition sector.

There should be an upward swing in the biz of Shang Chi over the weekend, and the opening weekend should be around Rs 13 crore.

Fast and Furious 9 saw a 3-month delayed-release in India and finally opened on Thursday. The pirated film was available all across, yet it has raked in some footfalls upon its release. The Vin Diesel fronted franchise opened at Rs 2 crore on September 2.

However, the biz dipped on Friday due to the loss of screens to Shang Chi. It has collected Rs 1.5 crore plus approx. It was bringing the total to Rs 3.50 crore.

The weekend total of F9 will be in the range of Rs 6 crore. All in all, this is indeed the best weekend at the Hindi circuits in the last 18 months, as the combined total of the two Hollywood biggies will be around Rs 20 crore.

Bell Bottom, too will get some eyeballs in its third weekend, and one can expect the Akshay Kumar starring to collect anywhere between Rs 1.75 to 2.25 crore.
