The Christmas King!!
(source – GD reporter)
The three major films in theatres this weekend – Dilwale, Bajirao Mastani and Star Wars: The Force Awakens – couldn’t really take full advantage of the Christmas holiday. The two Hindi releases were running in their 2nd week at the box office.
On the same day last year, PK collected a record-breaking Rs 27.55 crore on its 7th day, which was about 8% higher than the collections of Dhoom 3 the previous year.
In 2015, the collections on Christmas Day is down by around 15% from last year. In hindsight, a 25th December release, with preview shows starting on 24th, could have proven to be beneficial for Dilwale.
2008: Ghajini (Day 1) = 10.2 crore
2009: 3 Idiots (Day 1) = 13.1 crore
2010: Tees Maar Khan (Day 2) = 12.25 crore
2011: Don 2 (Day 3) = 17 crore
2012: Dabangg 2 (Day 5) = 15 crore
2013: Dhoom 3 (Day 6) = 25.52 crore
2014: PK (Day 7) = 27.55 crore
2015: Dilwale (Day 8) + Bajirao Mastani (Day 8) + Star Wars (Day 1) = 23.94 crore
