Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw collected well on Saturday too with Rs. 14 crores* more coming in. Of course, a much higher number was expected considering the film has been liked and also the trend of all other major films in the running [The Lion King, Super 30] being fantastic on Saturdays. Moreover, action films from Hollywood traditionally have good audiences in India, especially when it comes to a franchise like this.
Still, the numbers which are coming in are better than so many other films, both from Bollywood and Hollywood, which have released this year. The Hollywood spinoff is yet another major film to have done good business this year and now it would be all about the kind of success that it eventually turns out to be.
The film has already collected Rs. 27.15 crores* and now it has to be seen whether it would settle down as an above average, semi-hit or hit in the final run.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
